About this recipe: The world's simplest dessert - strawberries dipped in chocolate! Be adventurous and try decorating with white chocolate drizzles or chopped nuts or coloured sugar.
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
