Introduction: Chocolate Boxes and Strawberries

A great way to give a present in a beautiful gift box, but the best way is to give it on a beautiful chocolate box that you can eat.
The boxes are really easy to do and they look amazing. Its hard to believe that they are made of chocolate.

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

For this boxes you need:
A plastic soft plastic box that you can get at any bakery.
Chocolate bars.
Strawberries.
Plastic bags

Step 2: Making the Box

First you need to melt the chocolate the best way is to put it on the plastic bag and put it on the microwaveable 10 seconds at the time.
Every 10 seconds take out the microwave and mix the chocolate and repeat until all the content is melted. 
Once the chocolate is melted pour the chocolate in the box and rotate the box to get an even coverage. I wanted to put a heart and a date on it if you want to do this do it before you pour the first mix.
Let the box sit in the refrigerator for 5 minutes and the pour more chocolate to get an even coat until you are happy 
with the thickness.
Repeat this for the other side of the box.
A good way to check for thickness is to put the box to the light and you'll see if there is any weak spot that you can see the light.

Step 3: Taking It Out of the Mold

This is the tricky part you have to be careful  when taking it out. If you break the box dont panic, leave it in the mold and give it some heat on the crack with a blow dryer and the apply another coat.
Make sure the chocolate has cool down completely and if possible leave it in the refrigerator  for 10 minutes before trying to take it out.
The best way is to flip the mold upside down and place it on a flat surface and the make a cut in the bottom part with an exacto this will let the air go in between the chocolate and the mold. 
Do the same for both sides of the box and then put it together.

Step 4: Decorate the Strawberries

For my box i decorated the strawberries tuxedo style.
For this you first dip the front of the strawberries in the white chocolate after it cools down you dip the sides and the add some buttons and done. 

now just give it to the person you love the most and make them happy.
