Tuxedo Strawberries

100_1533

I made these Tuxedo Strawberries for my mother’s wedding. They are really pretty simple and always a great addition to any formal event.

 

What you will need to make them:

 

Strawberries (however many is up to you), preferably the medium to large sized ones. they are easier to work with

White Almond Bark

Milk Chocolate Almond Bark

Tooth picks or piping bag with very small opening

PATIENCE!

 

To Make:

To get the white “shirts” on,melt the white almond bark by zapping in the microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring until smooth. Be careful not to overcook!

Dip each strawberry into the white bark, leaving a little bit of space at the top.

Scrape bottom of berry on the bowl to allow excess to rub off.

Place on wax paper to harden.

 

When white is hard, melt the chocolate almond bark in the same fashion as the white.

At  45 degree angle dip the strawberries on either side, forming a “V”.

Scrape the bottom of the berry again to keep from having excess chocolate pooling at the bottom.

Place back on wax paper to harden. Refrigerate to speed up process.

 

After all the chocolate is hardened, you can now add the buttons and bow-ties!

Pipe or draw on 2-3 buttons depending on how much room you have.

Draw or Pipe a bow-tie on each. This is where the patience is needed!

 

You are now done!  For best taste, I recommend eating within the day, but you can store these overnight in the fridge. Be aware that as you bring them to room temp, they will have a little berry juice that leaks out and some condensation.
