Tuxedo strawberries

Desserts and Snacks Recipes

Timetable: 30 minutes/Group size: small-medium Yields: 15-20 strawberries Toolbox:
  • 1 lb large strawberries
  • 12 oz chocolate candy coating
  • 12 oz white chocolate candy coating
Prep: Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with aluminum foil or waxed paper and set aside. Wash the strawberries and dry them carefully, as excess water can interfere with the dipping process. Melt the white chocolate candy coating in the microwave, stirring after every 30 seconds to prevent overheating. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth. How To:
  1. Dip a strawberry into the white chocolate until it is almost submerged, but leave about 1/2-inch of undipped berry at the top. Allow excess chocolate to drip back into the bowl, and scrape the bottom of the berry against the lip of the bowl to remove excess white chocolate that might pool around the bottom of the berry.
  2. Place the berry onto the foil-lined baking sheet, and repeat with remaining berries, until all have been dipped in white chocolate. Place the dipped berries in the refrigerator to set the white chocolate while you prepare the dark chocolate for dipping.
  3. Once the white chocolate is completely set on the berries, take one berry and dip it into the dark chocolate at a 45-degree angle, so that the chocolate covers one side of the berry on the diagonal.
  4. Now turn it in the opposite direction and dip the other side on a 45-degree angle. The final result should be a berry that has a white "V" of chocolate showing through a darker outer coating.Allow excess chocolate to drip back into the bowl, and scrape the bottom of the berry against the lip of the bowl to remove excess chocolate that might pool around the bottom of the berry.
  5. Place the berry onto the foil-lined baking sheet, and repeat with remaining berries, until all have been dipped in dark chocolate.
  6. Use a piping bag fitted with a small round attachment, a paper cone (like in the example), or a plastic bag with the corner snipped off. Whichever method you choose, spoon some melted chocolate into your tool of choice. Make a bow tie by drawing two connected triangles at the top of the white V.
  1. Below this, place two or three dots  for buttons, depending on how much room you have.
  2. Place the tray back in the refrigerator to set the dark chocolate, for about 10 minutes. Your Tuxedo Strawberries are now ready to eat
