Directions

  1. Line a large baking sheet with wax paper. Wipe strawberries clean. Dry with paper towels.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  6. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

My husband's co-worker made these for our wedding reception, and they were absolutely AMAZING! They were the hit of the event, and I don't think there was a single one left at the end of the night.
