Tuxedo Strawberries

1 lb. fresh strawberries
8 oz. semisweet chocolate chips
6 oz. white chocolate, broken into pieces
Small amount of neutral flavored oil
Two saucepans
Colander
Paper towels
Wax paper
Cookie sheet
Stove
Toothpicks
Step One

Carefully rinse off strawberries in cool running water. Drain in colander. Pat strawberries dry with paper towels.
Step Two

Cut a piece of wax paper big enough to cover the bottom of a cookie sheet. Set the covered sheet next to the stove.
Step Three

Place the white chocolate pieces into one saucepan, and the semisweet chocolate chips into the other. Add a couple of teaspoons of oil to each pan. Set the semisweet chocolate chip mixture aside for now.

Step Four

Heat the white chocolate over the lowest setting, stirring the oil and candy together to make a smooth mixture. Determine what side of each strawberry is the flattest, and dip that side into the white chocolate mixture. Place the dipped berries onto the wax paper, dipped side up.
Step Five

Remove the white chocolate mixture while strawberries are cooling, and heat up the chocolate chips on the same stove burner. Blend until smooth.
Step Six

Dip the strawberry on its sides, one at a time, leaving at least a 1/2 inch "v" of visible white chocolate in the middle of the flat side. This simulates a tuxedo jacket. Return the strawberry to the wax paper, white chocolate side up.
Step Seven

Take a toothpick, and carefully dot chocolate onto the white chocolate "v" to form a bow tie. Do this by making two small dots with a tiny one joining them in the middle. Add another tiny dot of chocolate beneath the tie to simulate a button if there is enough space to do so. Chill strawberries for a couple of hours and serve.

TIPS:
Serve with champagne for an unforgettable romantic dessert. Eat the tuxedo strawberries within 48 hours for best results. Heating the chocolates on a higher setting will not make them melt faster. It will burn the chocolate instead!
