"Absolutely delectable and rich! Strawberries are injected with orange brandy, and dipped in rich dark chocolate. You don't have to put the white stripes on, but it gives a very professional look. Once you make these they won't last long! Takes a little time but its worth it!"

  1. Rinse strawberries and dry thoroughly. Use a syringe or clean marinade injector to inject about 2 teaspoons of brandy into each berry. Place them on a baking sheet, and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
  2. In a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water, combine bittersweet chocolate and shortening. Stir occasionally until melted and smooth. Stir in heavy cream and 1/4 cup of brandy. Place white chocolate in a separate bowl, and when the dark chocolate has melted, place the bowl of white chocolate over the pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth. Be sure to remove from heat as soon as it is mostly melted, white chocolate can be sensitive.
  3. Dip strawberries into chocolate, and let the excess drip off into the bowl before placing on waxed paper to set. When the strawberries have all been dipped in chocolate, dip a fork into the white chocolate, and drizzle back and forth over berries to stripe.

Changed the injected liquor to suit the tastes of my guests. Instead of brandy, I injected rum into the strawberries, let them sit for about an hour to marinate, then dipped them into chocolate...

I've made these twice and learned a few things. Very Fresh Firm strawberries are best (pay extra for the quality). 1 pound of choc is too much-use 1/2 to 3/4 pound and adjust the added Grand M...

My friend and I made these strawberries for Valentine's Day as gifts. I felt the strawberries were too strong and would probably change them by not adding the grand marnier to the chocolate. A...

These strawberries last about 2 seconds once you bring them out! You can only inject about 1/2 tsp in a regular sized berry. You'd need "frankenfruit" to be able to put 2 tsp in a strawberry. ...

These were very good. I just used dipping chocolate without the other liquids, because I didn't want to mess with trying to keep the chocolate from seizing. I didn't have a syringe in the house,...

I used 1 pound of milk chocolate with 2 tablespoons shortening. I also infused the strawberries with Godiva Cappuccino Liqueur. Let me tell you, these were fabulous!

Roommates barely let the chocolate set before they gobbled them up! I used three different liquors: Grand Marnier, Kahlua, and Bailey's Irish Cream (which we ended up liking the most). Before I ...

I was looking so forward to making these and although they tasted alright they were a pain to make (Sorry! I planned on about 30 min since it was my first time to make them but I spent the enti...
