If you’re looking for ideas for party nibbles, then these prosecco strawberries are a great idea. They make a great party dessert as they are easy to grab and nibble while you are chatting to people or dancing. This is one occasion when wine really can be one of your five a day.
For best results use a good quality Prosecco and remember you won’t need the whole bottle so you’ll have some left to drink while you’re making them or for later.
We love Rude Wines Prosecco (on offer at £9.29 with a 15% discount). It’s a finalist for The People’s Choice Wine Awards 2019 in the Fabulous Fizz category. It’s a light citrussy sparkler specially selected for Rude Wines by one of Veneto’s top Prosecco producers through a co-operative winery in the foothills of Montello and Asolo. Established in 1957, the co-op has over 600 hectares of vineyards at its disposal on a wide variety of sites.
Here’s the recipe – enjoy.
450g ripe strawberries
170g milk, white or dark chocolate
1 tsp sea salt flakes
- Place strawberries in a Kilner jar or measuring jug (leave the green part on the strawberries). Top up with Prosecco until covered. Cover with cling film if using a jug or replace the lid on the jar. Place in fridge and marinate for 24 hours.
- Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
- Melt chocolate gently in a small mixing bowl over a pan of simmering water. Do not expose to direct heat or it will separate. Dip each strawberry with the stem upwards so the bottom half is half covered in chocolate.
- Place on baking paper, moving the strawberry side to side slightly before letting go to make a foot. This means they will stand up when cool. Before the chocolate sets, sprinkle each one with a tiny pinch of sea salt flakes, and allow to cool.
- When cool, serve on a large plate, preferably a nice sparkly, Christmassy one. Bon Appetit.
