Introduction: Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shot Glasses

Nothing says "I Love You" quite like alcohol served up in an edible shot glass.  And when that edible shot glass is made out of a chocolate covered strawberry, you know your sweetie will swoon.  Or maybe that's just them passing out from the booze, but either way they'll love it! 

Here's how to make them: 

- Try to choose strawberries as big as you can find and rinse and dry them really well.  
- Cut the point of the strawberry off so they can stand on their own, the melted chocolate helps form a little base too which makes them even more stable.
- Hull out the strawberries using a paring knife and grapefruit spoon, you have to be careful not to make them too thin or they’ll break (nothing a little melted chocolate can’t help mend!). Don’t forget to make sure the strawberries are completely dry before dipping in chocolate.
- Melt chocolate according to the package's instructions, and transfer to a deep bowl or measuring cup for dipping.  Dip the bottoms of each strawberry in the chocolate and set upright on a wax paper-covered cookie sheet.  
- Freeze the dipped strawberry cups for maximum sturdiness, about 20 minutes.
- Fill with whatever alcoholic concoction you desire - I did a mixture of vanilla vodka, Godiva liquor, and chocolate syrup.
- Let the strawberries thaw for a few minutes before serving so no one breaks any teeth.  
- Top with whipped cream and sprinkles for an extra special touch, and enjoy!

Great idea. I added salt to the chocolate and filled the cups with tequila and triple sec.

How 'bout filling them with dark chocolate instant pudding, that has been mixed w/ 1 cup of milk, and 1 cup of Amaretto (instead of the requisite 2 cups of milk)? or Creme de Menthe? or ANY liqueur that would taste great w/ chocolate! Grand Marnier, Cognac ... yummm! These are a great idea for a gift, and I just checked my cupboard ... the choco pudding and the Amaretto are all on-board. Now .... if it'll stop snowing long enough for me to get to town, I'll buy some fresh strawberries and - we're good to go! Thanks for the sweet idea!

They look the business!
I've never seen anything like that before.
If only I wasn't on this stupid diet. However, we Micks get a dispensation for Paddy's day, I'll tuck in then.
