Chocolate dipped and Tuxedo Strawberries


A very simple but fancy way to serve strawberries. Ideal for birthdays, anniversaries and valentine’s day.

Dipping Strawberries
Yes, there is a technique involved to perfect chocolate-covered strawberries. When you dip the strawberry into the melted chocolate, give it a little shake as you withdraw it. This will fill in all the cracks and leave a nice, even line of chocolate at the base. When the strawberry is completely withdrawn from the chocolate, swirl it in a quick, clockwise motion to “spin” the dripping chocolate off.
Invert the hand, pointing the strawberry at the ceiling, to seal it and allow you to sprinkle other candies or toppings around the surface.
Cool covered strawberries on a sheet pan with wax paper. Keep them at a cool room temperature and try to dip them the same day you serve them.
Tuxedo Strawberries
Use big juicy strawberries. Rinse them well, leaving leaves on, dry them with a clean kitchen cloth or paper towel and proceed to dip them in melted chocolate. Dip strawberries in both white and dark chocolate to create a tuxedo effect. Dip in white first, let the chocolate dry over a wax paper sheet or parchment paper, then dip twice in dark chocolate, giving them that little shake to keep a straight line. First dip the strawberry by placing it at 45 degree-angle into the chocolate so that the back of the berry and one of the sides is covered by the chocolate, leaving like a diagonal in the front, then do the same with the other side. In this way you will have the back covered and you will make a V shape in the front. Buttons and a bow tie can easily be added with the tip of a wooden skewer or piped on using a paper cone.
Chocolate can be melted either on the stove or in the microwave. Check the web for instructions on how to melt chocolate.
It is very easy and classy. Thus, it gives extraordinary flavor to juicy berries.
you can also do this with other fruits of your taste.
