Ingredients

  • 24 to 26 strawberries
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsps. Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate

Directions

  • Step 1

    LINE a large baking sheet with wax paper. Wipe strawberries clean. Dry with paper towels.

  • Step 2

    PLACE semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon shortening in microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on MEDIUM (50% power), or defrost setting, 45 seconds. Stir. Repeat until chocolate is soft and shortening is melted. Stir until mixture is smooth. Repeat process with white chocolate and remaining 1 tablespoon shortening.

  • Step 3

    HOLD 1 strawberry by its green top; dip 3⁄4 of berry into melted white chocolate. Let excess drip off. Repeat with remaining berries. Place on prepared baking sheet.

  • Step 4

    DIP each white chocolate-dipped berry at an angle into melted semi-sweet chocolate, creating one side of the “lapel.” Repeat at an angle on the other side of the berry. Place on prepared baking sheet.

  • Step 5

    PLACE a small amount of melted semi-sweet chocolate into a small resealable plastic bag. Cut small tip off one corner. Pipe on buttons and a bowtie. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until chocolate coating is firm.

  • Step 6

    Can be prepared up to 8 hours ahead but are best eaten the same day. Keep refrigerated.
