In a heated pan, pour 6.3 ounces of dark chocolate and 3/4 cup of water. Stir until the chocolate is fully melted.

Place a small bowl over a bigger bowl with ice and cold water. Carefully pour the melted chocolate into the small bowl and whisk using a hand mixer.

Heat a bigger pan and place 3 3/4 cups of strawberries in it. Add in 1 1/8 cups of sugar and 2 tbsp of lemon juice, and stir until the strawberries are caramelized. Mix 3 tbsp of cornflour with 1 tbsp of water and pour over the caramelized strawberries. Stir everything until it’s well incorporated.

Using a presser, press the caramelized strawberries into a bowl.

In a large mixing bowl, add 1/16 cup of whole milk, 1/3 cup of sugar, and 1 tsp of active dry yeast. Whisk the ingredients until well combined. Then, add in 3 eggs and 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Whisk vigorously. Next, add 3 3/4 cups of plain flour, 1 tsp of salt, and 1/3 cup of butter. Stir until you reach the batter consistency.

Sprinkle some flour on a counter and knead the dough. Place the dough in a bowl and cover it to let the dough rise. When done, beat and flatten the dough using a rolling pin. Make hearts using a cookie cutter. Place the heart doughs in a lined baking tray and cover with cotton fabric.

Prepare and boil oil in a heated pan and place in the heart doughs. Flip to evenly cook the hearts. When cooked, strain and set aside.

In a food processor bowl, add 1 1/8 cups of sugar and 1/16 cup of freeze-dried strawberries. Blend until the mixture is made into a fine powder and transfer it to a bowl.
