Chocolate Filled Strawberries

RECIPE INFO

Servings

Submitted By ol-blue

Date 6/15/2007

INGREDIENTS

I would think it would be so neat to put these strawberries in those 1/2 dozen clear plastic egg container that I have seen on the Rachel Ray show. If you are lucky enough to have the clear plastic egg containers in your area then you would not have to cut the bottom of the strawberries off. Do this only if you want them to stand on a plate.
The empty strawberry containers work great also.
Enjoy! Debbie
Chocolate Filled Strawberries

STRAWBERRIES; Large.
1 cup(s) SEMI SWEET CHOCOLATE CHIPS
1 cup(s) WHIPPING CREAM; Heavy.
1/8 cup(s) SUGAR
STAWBERRY LEAVES; Or Mint Leaves.
_____

 

DIRECTIONS

Remove stems from strawberries.
Partially hollow out strawberries.
Cut a slice off the bottom of each strawberry so that it will stand on end.
Melt chocolate chips over a double boiler or in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl.
Cook and stir just until the chocolate melts.
The chocolate will continue to melt as you stir.
You do not want the melted chocolate to be hot.
Pour the whipping cream into a chilled bowl.
Use an mixer on high speed, beat until soft peaks form.
Add the sugar and beat until stiff peaks form.
Add the melted chocolate into the whipped cream as quickly as possible, and continue to mix on high speed until combined, about 1 minute.
Transfer Chocolate Cream mixture to a pastry bag with a star tip or spoon into a large plastic bag with a ¼ inch wide opening cut at one corner.
Pipe the cream into the strawberry holes, filling completely and mounding mixture a little.
Place a strawberry leaf or mint sprig in the top of each strawberry.
Refrigerate.
It is best to eat the strawberries within 24 hours.
I usually use two 16 ounce boxes of strawberries and have a little chocolate cream left over.
It all depends on the size of the berries.

This recipe came from Todd Wilbur Top Secret Recipes. It is very close to 7-Elevens Slurpee's. Very refreshing on a hot day! I have made this a couple of times. The last time I put my blender pitcher in the freezer to get it real cold. I was able to skip the last step of putting it back in the freezer for 30 minutes. I want to try this with coke instead of the club soda next time. The possibilities really are endless.

Chocolate Eclairs over coals

RECIPE INFO

Servings 6

Submitted By Diana

Date 6/2/2003

INGREDIENTS

1 can Pilsbury Bread Sticks (2 bread sticks per eclair)
1 lg. box instant vanilla pudding (or 2 sm. boxes)
1 can chocolate frosting
Hot coals
2" +/- dia. long stick (tree branch)(the more sticks you have the quicker you can make these eclairs)
aluminum foil

 

DIRECTIONS

Prepare the pudding and put aside (earlier in the day is good). Wrap the stick with aluminum foil. Take the 1st bread stick and wrap it in a spiral starting at the tip of the stick and work your way down the stick. Make sure you overlap the dough a bit. Then continue with the 2nd bread stick. Now take your hand and kind of squish the dough around the stick so that it all seals and there are no open gaps. Spin the dough over the hot coals. Cook it slowly so that the dough puffs up (don't worry if it doesn't). Keep it from burning. Tap on the dough to see if it is done (it should sound hollow). Fill with vanilla pudding and put chocolate frosting on outside. (this is a good job for the kids to do for it gets messy but taste awesome!!) Enjoy!

Pull-Apart Bread

RECIPE INFO

Servings 80 Bites

Submitted By Camping Life Magazine

Date 8/29/2001

INGREDIENTS

2 Packages, 10 count each, refrigerator biscuits
2 Sticks butter, melted
1 Packet dry onion soup mix (optional)

 

DIRECTIONS

Grease a ring pan, bundt pan or angel-food-type pan well. Using clean scissors, cut each biscuit into four peices. Dip each piece in melted butter, then in the onion soup mix, and arrange in the baking pan. Top with remaining butter; save soup mix for another batch. The pan should be no more than two-thirds full. Bake at 375 degrees until puffy, brown and done through. Let stand 3 to 4 minutes, then turn out onto a flate plate. To create a sweet, pull-apart bread for breakfast, omit the soup mix and dip pieces in cinnamon-sugar instead.
If you don't have a ring pan or angel food-type pan, grease the outside of a clean empty can, put some fishing weights into it to hold it down, and place it in the center of a greased baking pan. The bread requires this center "chimney" for thorough baking.
