White Chocolate Covered Strawberries with Coconut and Lime
1 dozen large, long-stemmed California Giant Strawberries
1 cup white chocolate pieces / 165g
½ cup shredded coconut / 80g (Note: for best results finely chop shreds or process in food processor until fine)
zest of one lime
Toss lime zest and coconut shreds together. Set aside.
Place chocolate in a heat proof bowl over a saucepan filled with 1" of simmering water. Continue to simmer on low, stirring frequently until chocolate is melted and smooth.
Holding the strawberry at the base of the stem, carefully dip the berry into the melted chocolate. Pull the berry from the chocolate while swirling slightly. Gently shake the berry to release excess chocolate.
Immediately roll the dipped portion of the strawberry in coconut lime mixture. Place on a piece of parchment to cool/harden.
