Tuxedo Strawberries

There is nothing quite as sweet and juicy as chocolate covered strawberries.  It's a special Valentine's Day treat and can add a special touch to a romantic dinner for two.

Its so easy to make this decadent delight.

Things you will need:

1 lb. fresh strawberries
8 oz. Semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
6 oz. White chocolate chips
4 tsp. canola oil
Wax Paper
Cookie Sheet
2 microwaveable bowls

Rinse off strawberries in cool water and pat dry.  Cover bottom of cookie sheet with wax paper.
Place white chocolate chips in a medium bowl.  Add 2 tsp. canola oil.  Microwave at 70% power for 1 minute.  Stir and microwave at 10-15 minute intervals until melted.

Dip strawberries into white chocolate all the way up to the leaves.  Place on wax paper and let set 10-15 minutes.

Microwave chocolate as above.  Dip the strawberry on it's sides, one at a time leaving a "V" of visible white chocolate in the middle return to wax paper.
Take a toothpick and carefully dot chocolate onto the white chocolate "V" to form a bow tie and buttons.
Chill for 2 hours or until set.

All dressed up for any special occasion!

Happy Valentine's Day

  2. I love this! It's so cute. :) If you sold these, you could get a lot of money. I say that because I saw chocolate covered strawberries being sold for 3 dollars, for every 2 strawberries, in the supermarket.
