Chocolate Covered "Tux" Strawberries!

I thought that french toast would be enough over the weekend - but what would Valentine's Day be without some chocolate covered, long stem strawberries!  Look - Taz is so happy I'm about to make them....
 Thanks for the kisses Tazzy.

What you'll need:

Some large, long stem strawberries
12 oz bag of white chocolate
12 oz bag of dark chocolate

 Melt the chocolate over a double boiler (water in pot over a low flame - another bowl sitting on top - but not touching the water in pot).
 First I melted the white chocolate and dipped most of the berries.  Then place them on a baking sheet with a silpat (silicon material that will let the chocolate release easily).

 Mmmmm and now the dark....
 After the strawberries are dipped in white chocolate - you could either stop here and just have some white, some dark.... but what if we do BOTH??  We have berries ready for a black tie event!

*Fun idea if you are going to be throwing an Oscar party!  It's less than two weeks away!
I dipped a few in dark chocolate first, then drizzled some white on top.

For the "Tux look" - it is very easy!  Dip the side of the white chocolate strawberries in dark chocolate so you've made the "V" shape - return to fridge so it can set up.  Then use a toothpick and make the three buttons (just dot the chocolate on).  Then above the top button, use a tooth pick to make the bow tie shape!  It's not hard!
Taz - what a wonderful Valentine's Day treat idea!  Good puppy - we will really surprise Daddy John when he gets home!!!  But for now, I will help you hold your chew bone   :-)
