Before you start cooking strawberries in yogurt, it is recommended to prepare a convenient dish on which the finished strawberries will solidify. You can use a wooden board wrapped in cling film.
First, melt the prepared chocolate in a water bath. This can be done by a child under adult supervision. The main thing is to carefully monitor the mass so that the chocolate does not overheat and burn.
While the chocolate is cooking, it’s time to work on the gelatin. You can use any: sheet or granular. Gelatin must be soaked in cold water, and then left to swell.
Instruct the child to wash the strawberries well, remove all green leaves and tails from it, wipe dry with a napkin.
Remove the melted white chocolate from the steam bath and add the already swollen gelatin to it. Before this, gelatin can also be slightly flooded in a water bath or sent to the microwave for 5-7 seconds. Add Greek yogurt to the chocolate and gelatin mass. Mix thoroughly until the mixture is smooth and there are no lumps. If the strawberries are sour, then you can add powdered sugar (not sugar!) to the melted chocolate to taste.
It happens that bubbles form on the surface of the glaze, which then harden ugly on the strawberries. This can be avoided by passing the entire chocolate mass with gelatin and yogurt through a sieve before glazing.
Now you can start glazing your strawberries! The resulting glaze should be very thick and dense. Check that it does not flow from the berry, but stretches. The thicker the yogurt-chocolate layer, the tastier! Therefore, you can lower the strawberries into the mixture several times, periodically removing a batch of berries in the refrigerator so that the bottom layer freezes.
Decorating is the most fun part of cooking! Before cooling, invite the child to dream up and come up with the decor of the treat. He may want to decorate strawberries with poppy seeds, curly confectionery sprinkles, coconut flakes, crushed nuts, dragees, or chocolate dyed with food coloring. Get a spectacular rainbow dish!
After decorating strawberries, it must be sent to the refrigerator until it hardens (10-20 minutes). Ready? Call home and Bon appetit!
