“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!” - by KELSTOUCH
Original recipe yields 16 strawberries
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

"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 Marnier..." See more. The more GM in the choc, the more is looses it's smooth texture. Don't even try to get 2 tsp of GM into a strawberry unless it's extra huge, settle for 1/2 tsp and move on. With those adjustments...WOW! This was a fabulous treat!"
"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. Did..." See more not try to add liquor or cream to the chocolate mixture, just dipped them into chocolate that was melted over a simmering water. This recipe is very versatile as you can insert what ever liquor you prefer into the strawberries. Excellent idea! These are always requested at girls night. But as another reviewer mentioned, there are occasions of escaping streams of liquor while trying to inject strawberries."
"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. Also by..." See more not adding the grand marnier the chocolate would have had a more smoother look to it. Or it may just be that orange brandy isn't my type of liquor. My friend on the other hand loved them. And people we gave them to as gifts thought they were fabulous. I also made a batch of plain strawberries just in case people didn't like the bradied ones. So they were still enjoyable regardless. I would definitely make them again to give out as gifts. Something to keep in mind... while infusing the strawberries, watch for shooting streams of alcohol :-)"
