Today at STYLEanthropy, wouldn’t it be nice to have some “Me Moment”? Like when you’ve had a looooooong week at work, or you’ve been eating clean and working out everyday – you just want to reward yourself with a treat. I recently discovered Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt. It’s a better-for-you alternative to regular ice cream without compromising the taste. And I’m telling you, it tastes really good. They come in ice cream flavors like Vanilla Bean, Mint Chocolate Chip and Raspberry Chocolate Chip. So I got inspired and made chocolate cups to serve the yogurt in. To top it off, I made some strawberry roses for an extra fancy treat for myself. You should try it out and enjoy some “me moment” too. Here’s how to make them.
Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt in Chocolate Cups with Strawberry Roses
What You’ll Need:
- Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt, frozen for about 2-4 hours or overnight
- 4 oz of semi-sweet chocolate bar, chopped (a 4-ounce bar yielded about 6 chocolate cups)
- Strawberries for topping
- Silicon cups
- Put the chopped chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at 50% power for 1 minute. Mix with a spoon and return to the microwave and heat for 15 second intervals until the chocolate is all melted and smooth. Do not overdo it or the chocolate will burn. Keep checking every 15 seconds and make sure to mix in between heating.
- Once the chocolate is all melted and smooth, drop about 2 tablespoons of chocolate into a silicon cup. Swirl the chocolate all around the sides of the silicon cup, making sure all sides are coated. Don’t make it too thin because it can easily break when you try to take it out later on. Make sure the cup is fully coated so you won’t have any holes on your chocolate cup. Once done, put in the refrigerator for 25 minutes to cool and set. It should look like this:
- To remove the chocolate bowl, gently separate the top edges of the silicon cup first. Be gentle on the sides, you don’t want to break it. Carefully pull away the silicon edge just a little bit to loosen the chocolate from the mold.
- Once the edges are separated, unroll the silicon mold to reveal your chocolate cup. It’s like you’re peeling the silicon cup downwards as you can see in the photo below. If you’re not using the chocolate cups yet, you can store them in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Now it’s time to learn how to make some Strawberry roses. It’s simply carving on fruit. And once you get the hang of it, it will be easier each time and you can do the same technique for other fruits.
- First, cut straight across the crown of the strawberry so it can stand up straight on a plate.
- Second, cut 4 petals at the bottom most part of the strawberry. One on each side, as if you are creating 4 triangles. Do a “saw motion” as you cut a bottom side. Don’t go all the way down, otherwise the section or petal will fall off. Just cut about halfway through so that the top is cut open but the bottom is still intact.
- Third, do another round of 4 petals on top of the the 4 petals you just did on the bottom. But this time, make the cut in between the petals on the bottom. So if earlier you made something like a cross (top, bottom, left, right cuts), this time, your cuts are going to be in an X position.
- Fourth, you’ll be left with a “bud” on top. You can cut it into three by doing two cuts. Then slightly open up the cuts to open up your strawberry rose.
Now, it’s time to assemble our Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt-filled chocolate cups!
- Place your chocolate cup in a serving platter of your choice. I adore these mini cupcake stands!
- Now scoop your frozen Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt into the cups and top off with a strawberry rose!
- You can also mix and match your favorite flavors. How about a Neapolitan ice cream inspiration? The chocolate is of course, the chocolate cups!
- Now instead of scooping the frozen yogurt, you can also just fill up the cups all the way to the top. Smoothen the top with a butter knife. That way, it looks like a cupcake.
Well there you have it. Indulge in Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt-filled chocolate cups. You certainly deserve your “Me Moment”!
