Tomorrow marks the official first day of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. In the dessert world for some reason I connect white chocolate with summer.

Not too long ago I told you that having chocolate at home can be quite tricky in Thailand. But things have changed a little since the start of the rainy season. It still is not cold, but it has cooled down. Although the humidity that comes with all the rain is another challenge in itself.

When I came across these freeze-dried strawberries at a 7/11 here, right away images of a white chocolate project I came across on Pinterest popped up in my head. (Note: 7/11 in the US or Canada most likely won’t have freeze-dried strawberries, but maybe try Trader Joe’s or even Amazon.)

The creator of that project is Jeanny. She is the writer and creative mind behind the German blog Zucker, Zimt & Liebe (means: Sugar, Cinnamon & Love).

Some of you may know that I am from Germany, so I have no problem reading her blog. But even if you can’t, it is worth checking it out just for all the amazing pictures of her creative sweet treats (She is a great photographer and food stylist; I wish I was closer to be able to attend one of her food photography workshops).

So I also picked up some pistachios and imported white chocolate to create my own colorful, fruity summer chocolate.

Creating this white chocolate bark is quite simple, but when you add to this tropical humidity things get challenging. To set up the chocolate it has to be chilled in the fridge for a while.

Well, to everything we take out from the fridge condensation sets on in an instant. You might still see a few droplets in the pictures, because my attempt of drying the condensation (in front of the fan) wasn’t completely successful.
On a brighter note, I am very happy to announce from now on you will be able to directly print recipes from this site or save them to your ZipList.

This recipe is for a small portion for just my husband and me. But you can easily multiply it.

  • Freeze-Dried Strawberries (10 gr)

  4. Keep in fridge until thoroughly chilled, then break or cut into pieces.

You can easily modify this recipe to taste or with whatever you have on hand. For example, replace the strawberries with dried cranberries, raisins or candied fruit. Or replace the pistachios with any type of other nuts. Salted kinds work just as well, as they help to cut the sweetness of the white chocolate.

I hope you all have a great start into summer and enjoy this warmer season to the fullest with time spent outdoors, BBQs, light summer desserts and lots of ice cream!

    I can taste this just looking at it! I checked out Zucker, Zimt & Liebe and I have to agree about her photos. Nice addition – the ZipList plugin! I have had the app for some time now and have wanted to use it on my site, but it does not seem to work on blogger. Or, perhaps it’s just me. :-)

      Thank you so much for your feedback, Jacquee <3 I love the options ZipList offers, but I am also still figuring out the best way to use it on my site. All the instructions I got were for WordPress. But hopefully they’ll come out with it for Blogger too.
