Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! Here is just one more reason to love your Instant Pot, and a sweet little treat for you.
Today I am sharing just how easy it is to use the Instant Pot as a double boiler. I have in fact used this method now of double boiling with the Instant Pot 3 other times now. Over the holidays I made Chocolate covered peanut clusters, sugar cookie fudge, and chocolate-covered pretzels. Today I am sharing the chocolate-covered strawberries I made for my hubby for Valentine’s Day. He said they were just as yummy as Shari’s berries. I didn’t spend an arm and leg though on them. One container of strawberries and one bag of chocolate morsels is all you need. If you would like to add sprinkles on top, no problem. I happened to have some cute white little sprinkles in the pantry.
I have been making sweet treats for years now. One frustrating part was always keeping the chocolate warm and melted.
Now with the Instant Pot as a double boiler, you can keep the chocolate warm and creamy ready for dipping with ease. You will need a Pyrex dish. I have a 9.5-inch one that fits nicely on top of the 6 Qt. Instant Pot. It’s actually a tad too big, but it works just fine. If you have one that fits just so on top even better.
It’s Hard Not to Lick The Spoon
here and there while melting. Another tip you can try is using a glass bowl inside the Instant Pot, NOT with the pressure cooker method, but the same saute method. If the bowl fits, add your chocolate, add the water to the pot, and set on saute mode. I would use at least 2 cups of water. It’s worth a shot.
Don’t these chocolate covered strawberries look gorgeous?!~
