Tuxedo dipped strawberries

Yield: 10 servings

Measure Ingredient
10 \N Strawberries washed with stem
1 pounds Dark chocolate melted
1 pounds White chocolate melted

PLACE clean strawberries in cold water and pat dry with paper towels.

MELT in two glass microwavable bowls both chocolates using a microwave and by stirring it until the chocolate is warm, but not hot.

THEN line a small cookie pan with parchment paper and dip the strawberry in the white chocolate first by gently gripping the stem (coat ¾'s up).

Place the strawberry on the paper and chill in the refrigerator for 5 minutes.

NEXT dip the strawberry in the dark chocolate (using the same technique) and coat both sides creating a V pattern. Looking at the strawberry the dark chocolate should touch at bottom and the remaining white chocolate should look like a tuxedo shirt without studs. Put the berry back on the parchment and refrigerate for another 5 minutes.

NOW to create the studs and the tie use a paper pastry bag (or a very small artist paint brush) and fill it with a small amount of the dark chocolate and pipe 3 to 4 dots (studs) and small bow tie.

LAST carefully remove the strawberries with flat wide knife and present on a mirror, marble piece or silver tray with a small amount of flowers.

* Suggested Wine: Great with red and white wine or champagne.

* Serving Ideas: Great after dinner treat for guests or for weddings.
