Valentine’s Tuxedo Strawberries

Standard

TuxedoThese strawberries are dressed to impress your special Valentine!

What you will need:

1 quart fresh strawberries, washed and dried with a clean towel

1 package white melting chocolate (Wilton brand preferred)

1 package dark chocolate melting chocolate (Wilton)

1 disposable piping bag

1 cookie sheet

waxpaper or parchment

 

Rinse the strawberries in cold running water and immediately pat dry with a clean towel.  Place berries on several layers of paper towel to absorb remaining water.

Melt the white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl for 30-60 seconds at a time at half power, chocolate should be smooth and lump free.  Hold the berries by the green top and dip into the melted white chocolate, 3/4 up the berry, leaving a little bit of red showing at the top.  Place the dipped berries on a wax paper lined cookie sheet and refrigerate 10 minutes to set the chocolate.  While the white chocolate sets, melt the dark chocolate in the microwave.

Dip the strawberries carefully into the dark chocolate at an angle on each side to create the tuxedo jacket effect.  Return berries to lined tray and refrigerate to set.

Fill piping bag with remaining melted dark chocolate (reheat if necessary).   Cut a small opening on the end of the piping bag and use to add 3 dots and the bowtie on the front of the berry.  Return to refrigerator to chill, keep cold until ready to serve on in a decorative box or on top a romantic heart shaped cake!
