Chocolate covered strawberries!

???????????????????????????????

Chocolate covered strawberries are my absolute go-to guilty pleasure.  I don’t know why I don’t make these more often as they are delicious and they’re easy to make and look impressive to guests. They’re a quick and fun dessert to serve at your next party!

Ingredients:

  • Strawberries
  • Milk chocolate (I used Cadbury’s Dairy Milk)
  • 1tsp Vegetable oil
  1. Melt the chocolate with the vegetable oil in the microwave every 30 seconds until its melted and you get a smooth consistency
  2. After you wash the strawberries make sure you pat them dry with a paper towel before dipping them into the chocolate. Once dipped, place on a plate lined with parchment paper and refrigerate for about an hour.

Afternoon tea!

PicMonkey Collage2

Last weekend I got to experience “afternoon tea” at the Raffles Hotel here in Dubai after much persistence from all my friends to check it out. So after much hype, I grabbed a friend of mine and decided to go see for myself.

So they serve you a tea of your choice along with little sandwiches, scones and assorted desserts. Quite fancy, I must say! We ordered one between 2 people as I’m not a big eater and neither was my friend, so it was more than enough for the 2 of us.
