Attention chocolate lovers and connoisseurs of vodka. Say cheers to a sweet recipe with the yummy combination of vodka, strawberries, and chocolate: SugarPova Chocolate Dipped Vodka Strawberries. We think this is the perfect dinner (and conversation) party dish. Read on for WineLoversVillage tested and tasted recipe for Drunken Chocolate dipped Strawberries.
Did you know tennis player Maria Sharapova is a chocolate lover like we are? We didn’t either until recently introduced to her chocolate sampler package. We always knew about her amazing tennis accomplishments, but her candy and chocolate accomplishments are out of this world.
Traveling around the world playing tennis she had the opportunity to also search for the chocolate she felt was right for her brand. She chose the European Chocolatiers at Baron of Poland.
The SugarPova chocolates alone are smooth and delicious, but with our love of cocktails, we had to play.
We opened the SugarPova chocolate sampler package — and were inspired. One of the bars is a strawberry chocolate which (surprise) made us envision “drunken vodka strawberries” using this exquisite chocolate.
Here is our recipe creation using vodka-soaked strawberries dipped in SugarPova Milk chocolate with Strawberry.
