Ingredients

home-made strawberry jam

200 grams chocolate bars* (choose your favourite type of chocolate)

 

*we have tested this ourselves at Beekers Berries and we advice:

  • Pineberry with white chocolate or milk chocolate
  • Strasberry with dark chocolate (>70% cacao)
  • 'ordinary' red strawberry with milk or dark chocolate

Supplies

a bowl and a pot to melt the chocolate

silicon chocolate mould (it does work with an ice-cube mould however these are harder and therefore need an extra layer of chocolate before putting in the jam)

teaspoon

small paint brush

freezer

  4. Brush on a second chocolate layer into the mould
  5. Freeze again for 5 minutes
  6. With an ice-cube mould add one extra layer of chocolate
  7. Fill the chocolate cups with home-made strawberry jam using a teaspoon. Leave 2 mm clearance from the top of the mould

  9. Cover the jam with a final layer of chocolate
  10. Freeze for another 5 to 10 minutes until the top layer of chocolate is hard
