Tuxedo Strawberries

From the 2000 KLO dinner — Surf-n-Turf

Tuxedo Strawberries

  • large ripe strawberries, green cap still on
  • white chocolate
  • dark chocolate

Melt the white chocolate and dip each strawberry in the chocolate to cover all of the berry except the green cap. Let cool on wax paper.

Melt the dark chocolate. Dip each strawberry (already covered in white chocolate) in the dark chocolate at an angle; immediately dip the strawberry in the chocolate again at the opposite angle. The idea is to have an berry almost entirely coated in dark chocolate, with a “V” of white chocolate displayed one side, similar to the appearance of a white shirt under a dark tuxedo. Let cool on wax paper.

Melt more white chocolate, and with a fine tip on a piping bag, place three small dots on the dark chocolate, immediately under the white “V”. The appearance should be three white buttons on a black coat.
