I recently saw a photo of chocolate dipped strawberries decorated as charming little tuxedos, and just couldn’t resist passing on the good idea. So I gave it a go, and they are deceivingly easy to make, all you need is some good chocolate and a steady hand.
150g white chocolate, melted
200g milk or dark chocolate, melted
Disposable piping bag (or a zip lock bag)
Step 1: For the “shirt” dip the whole strawberry in white chocolate and let it dry in the fridge for about 20 minutes, or until completely set.
Step 2: For the first lapel dip the strawberry into milk chocolate at a 45° angle and dry in the fridge for a few minutes until set.
Step 3: For the second lapel dip the strawberry again at a 45° angle in the opposite direction and let it dry.
Step 4: Pour the left over milk chocolate into a small piping bag to pipe two buttons and a little bow onto the “shirt” area and let completely dry. If you don’t have piping bags, you can just use a small zip lock bag, pour the chocolate into one of the corners and snip off a very small piece of the corner.
…be fearless, and have fun!
