Chocolate Covered Strawberries with Infused Vodka
Let’s get a little sexy.
What’s sexier than these Vodka Infused Chocolate Covered Strawberries?
So its Valentine’s Day and you are trying to plan one of the most romantic evenings for that special person. You have prepared a romantic candlelit dinner, sparkling champagne, rose petals, but you don’t have a dessert. Let me pause for a minute and say that if you don’t have dessert any other day of the year, Valentine’s Day is the day to do it. Anyway, not to worry! I have the perfect solution for you. It may be a solution that will lead to another problem though. The problem being how you are going stop eating these chocolate covered strawberries. Get your minds out of the gutter. I wasn’t talking about that kind of problem. In fact, gaining a few pounds isn’t that big of a deal. Uh huh, I know what y’all thinking about and I am not giving in.
These strawberries are infused with Smirnoff Strawberry Vodka and covered with milk chocolate and drizzled with white chocolate. You can really cover them with whatever you want. They are the perfect ending to a romantic evening. The best part of them is that you can’t really taste the vodka. I think the taste of the vodka merges with strawberries because you ca’t taste the alcohol! These sweet and juicy berries have no sign of alcohol once bitten into. I’m telling you, if you make these for your person of interest, things are bound to happen (wink). Once you try them, I want you to send me a message letting me know about your night :-). But with subtle detail my friends.
NOTE: You will need a flavor injector for this recipe. If you do not have one, they are fairly inexpensive and can be used for other dishes as well.Print
Vodka Infused Chocolate Covered Strawberries
- Package of Strawberries
- 8 oz Smirnoff Strawberry Vodka
- 16 oz candy coated chocolate
- melted white chocolate for drizzle (optional)
- toffee pieces (optional)
- Rinse the strawberries and place them on a plate. After you have rinsed them, take a napkin and dab the strawberries so they are not wet. If the exterior of the strawberries are too wet this will make the chocolate less likely to stick and make the melted chocolate separate.
- Take the flavor injector and fill it with the vodka. Individually, take a strawberry and stick it with the injector at the bottom of the strawberry (at the peak). Slowly fill the strawberry with vodka. The strawberry may begin to overflow with the vodka and that is when you need to stop. This usually happens with smaller strawberries, but the bigger the strawberry it is less likely to do this unless you want a lot of vodka injected in them.
- Once all of your strawberries are injected, dab the strawberries again to remove any excess moisture from the vodka and place them in the freezer for 10-12 minutes. This will allow the strawberries to set.
