Sometimes I get so strawberry in. wanna taste their beautiful acid yet refreshing.
After all, thi
s so exotic-red fruit was so perfect in to any kind of desserts. Yeah .. not all. But strawberry and cream always a perfect marriage.

The best strawberry dessert in my sweet opinion was (always) Strawberry Shortcake. But in Japanese style. I don’t very in to American style that using shortcake (sweet pastry dough) as a a base. In Japanese style their using very light, spongy and creamy sponge cake. The cream usually Chantilly cream, even u can always change it with plain whipped cream, as you like it to be. Another version is strawberry cake. Still using sponge cake as a base and top, sandwiched between mousselin cream (mixed vanilla pastry cream and plain buttercream) and halved strawberries. Glazed with strawberry coulis/jelly. Its so chic ! I tell you. But it’s more heavy in taste than strawberry shortcake.

But For some easy refreshing snack for your afternoon treat probably chocolate coating strawberries is the perfect treats for you.You just need washed fresh strawberries, melted dark chocolate and white chocolate. Put each of strawberry in to melted dark chocolate.Decor with white chocolate.Let it set. Just like that. The taste? Don't ask. Delicious and also refreshing. I ate 5 ... err ... maybe more ...
