Tuxedo Strawberries

I made these cute strawberries for Valentine's Day, but they're really fun & special anytime.  Here's what you need:

Dark or milk chocolate
(such as Wilton Candy Melts, Ghiradelli chocolate chips, chocolate bark)
White chocolate or bark
wax paper


Clean your strawberries & dry them.  You don't want any water to get into the melted chocolate or it will seize up.

Melt your chocolate in the microwave on one-minute intervals at 50% power.  Stir & then put back in the microwave again, until melted.  I use a narrow, small microwave-safe glass for melting because it's easier to coat the strawberries when you're doing a small quantity.

Dip your clean, dry strawberry in the white chocolate, coating just the front section. Shake off any extra chocolate.   Put on wax paper to harden.

Next dip the strawberry in the dark or milk chocolate,  coating both sides to form a "V" in the front for the shirt.  Put on the wax paper to harden. 

Using a toothpick, you can put on the buttons for the shirt & make a bow tie at the top.  Let dry.

There you have adorable strawberry decked in a tuxedo!!
