  • Welcome to How To Cook That, I am Ann Reardon.

  • And today we are going to make chocolate roses which have a strawberry in the middle.

  • To start with, you'll need to make some modeling chocolate, and I will link you to that recipe

  • video on my channel at the end of this one. And I'll also put a link to that below.

  • Roll out 5 balls of your modeling chocolate, some can be slightly larger than others, that's fine.

  • And just place them on some non-stick baking paper.

  • And then also roll a snake of your modeling chocolate as well, and place that there.

  • Space them out on you baking paper, and then place a second piece over the top.

  • And then gently squash each one, and then roll them flat using a rolling pin.

  • Then do the same with the snake, squashing that long and flat.

  • Wash and hull your strawberries. Then take a cake-pop stick and dip it into

  • some of the tempered real white chocolate, or you could use melted compound chocolate,

  • either one.

  • And push that into the cut part of the strawberry.

  • And then dip the whole strawberry into the chocolate, turning it to make sure it is completely

  • encased in the chocolate.

  • You want to make sure you use strawberries here that are symmetrical and cone shaped,

  • so they are kind of pointy at the top.

  • Not the huge strange shaped ones.

  • Let that set.

  • Then take your snake of modeling chocolate, and roll it up at one end, going to about half way,

  • and this making the centre of your flower.

  • Using your knife, cut off half of the spiral so the underneath half of it, making sure you

  • don't cut off the long end of the snake because we still need that.

  • Now, place the spiral on top of the strawberry and then wrap around the rest of the snake

  • so that it is tight on the strawberry bit but loose at the top so it looks like petals.

  • Then take your first chocolate petal and place it on the side of the strawberry.

  • Take your next petal and overlap it over the first one.

  • And repeat that again with the next one, making sure when you look down from the top into

  • the rose that you can't see any of the white chocolate.

  • Then gently use your fingers to feather out the top of the petals so that it looks like

  • they are opening up.

  • Take another petal and stretch it around to cover the white chocolate at the base and

  • up to be the right height at the top.

  • Then bend that petal out at the top a little so it looks like the rose is opening up.

  • If you have a petal thats not quite round like this one, just find the best edge and

  • use that for the top of the petal, and stretch the base down like we did before to make it

  • reach to the bottom of the bud.

  • You can leave it just like that with the 5 petals, or you can continue to add more if you want a

  • fuller flower.

  • Continue to make more roses, and you can do some in white modeling chocolate or coloured modeling

  • chocolate if you prefer.

  • I'll just stuck to the milk chocolate and the white chocolate for this bunch.

  • In the bunch, I also want some of the strawberries to be visible.

  • because I want some of that bright red colour.

  • Put some chocolate on a cake pop stick, and push it into the end of the strawberry,

  • and then dip the tip of the strawberry into the chocolate as well.

  • And then put it into a cup to set.

  • This is a good to use up any of the strawberries that were not pointy on top.

  • And so that you can still use them in your bunch.

  • Arrange your strawberries and roses on some cellophane with some golden tissue paper or

  • whatever colour you like, and wrap them up and secure them firmly with some ribbon.

  • And then they are ready for you to give away, what a yummy gift!
