    Used different ingredients. i used dark chocolate, with a little bit of cream just enough to take the bitterness of the chocolate, but still have that dark chocolate cutting through the juicy sweetness of the strawberries, it was abso delicous,  -  11 Apr 2011


    i used dark chocolate as the strawberries usually have more tastethan the chocolate which just acts in the background i think, but with the dark chocolate it adds a delicous flavour to the strawberries that doesn't just take a backseat, but works alongside the strawberries, and that dipped in some cream tasted lovley. I used double cream, as i was planning to make another recipe that needed wipped cream, however i would have used a more sweeter cream, but it all turned out well.  -  11 Apr 2011


    I looked at the pictures of the little Tuxedo strawberries and thought they looked adorable but difficult to make. I wanted them to finish off my husband’s birthday cake. Firstly I made sure the strawberries were at room temperature and dry before proceeding. I used chocolate bark as I always find it easier to deal with. I brought myself an electric fondue and its perfect for this job, it really did make it so much easier. Whenever I have used a double boiler in the past, I always found it difficult to work with. These tasted just gorgeous and now I know how easy they are to make I will be making these all the time! *Note* The only thing I will say is to use the day they are made, I stored mine in the fridge overnight and they became very wet and full of condensation. Ok but not as good as the day before!  -  12 Jan 2013
