Suppose you want to make chocolate-covered strawberries for a special occasion. In that case, it is important that you don’t rush and do any of the following: Add too much chocolate: You might think that adding another layer of chocolate will make the bouquet taste better, but this will just overpower the taste of the strawberry. Secondly, put too many strawberries in one jar: If you put too many strawberries in one jar, they will stick together and make the bouquet impossible to get out without smashing some of them.
Thirdly, get impatient: Even if it takes a little more time to make the bouquet, it will be worth it when it is done. Fourth, add chocolate to the jar too soon: If you add chocolate to the jar while there is still juice from the strawberries in it, you will have a mixture that is impossible to separate. The fifth mistake to avoid is using cheap jars: While inexpensive jars might be tempting, they often break easily and aren’t very easy for your customers or guests to get the bouquet out of.
Also, do not add chocolate too late: Once the chocolate is added to the jar, it needs time to dry so that it doesn’t mix with whatever else you add in there or get on your hands when you are trying to arrange them. Do not put two chocolates together: When making a bouquet, it is best to do one type of chocolate at a time because the chocolates have different times for setting. If you put two types together, it can affect how quickly they both dry and could make them look bumpy or uneven.
Also, do not allow chocolate to drip from the jar: When you first pour the melted chocolate into the jar, keep it as level as possible. If the chocolate starts to drip from the jar, you will need to make a new bouquet because it will drip onto other strawberries and ruin them. Next is heating chocolate too much: When you first start making chocolates, it might be tempting to heat the chocolate too much so that it is easier to work with. However, this will make it thinner and more likely to drip or run even if you don’t want it to.
Also, avoid using cheap chocolate: Cheap chocolate has a lot of additives that can affect the flavor and quality of your finished product, making them not as tasty as it could be if you used good ingredients. Next is letting chocolate sit too long before arranging: After you make the bouquet, let it sit for about 20 minutes or until the chocolate is starting to set. This way, it will be easier to arrange while still allowing some time for it to dry.
Do not allow flowers/garnishments on a jar to fall into chocolate: When you are putting flowers or other garnishments on the jar, make sure they are secure and won’t fall into the chocolate. Never let flowers/garnishments fall into chocolate: When you first pour the melted chocolate into the jar, keep it as level as possible so that everything will stay as together as possible. If there is a gap between the flowers and the top of the jar, they might fall into the chocolate.
