Chocolate Stuffed Strawberries

I'm all about non convention so i was thinking about how to put a twist on the classic chocolate covered strawberry.

I thought about switching the ingredients and making strawberry covered chocolates.

Well after some experimentation I ended up creating Chocolate Stuffed Strawberries.

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
Fresh strawberries
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 rounded teaspoon shortening (do not use butter, margarine, spread or oil)

Step 2: Partially slice the top of the strawberry

Using a knife, carefully slice the top of the strawberry without cutting all the way thru.

Then carefully rotate the top open.

The area where the top is still connected will hinge nicely like a door.

Step 3: Core out the center of the strawberry

Carefully core out the center of the strawberry with a sharp knive.

Step 4: Make the chocolate filling & stuff the strawberry

Combine the chocolate chips with the shortening in a microwaveable bowl or cup. Microwave for about 30 seconds until soft and mix with a spoon.

Then spoon the chocolate mixture into the strawberry.

Step 5: Voila...meet the chocolate stuffed strawberry!

After you've stuffed the strawberry with chocolate, rotate the cap back on and let some of the chocolate ooze over the sides.

You can eat them right away while the chocolate is warm or store them in the refrigerator.

With strawberries THAT big, I think I'd rather use a melon ball scoop to remove the middle of the strawberries, instead of a knife that has the potential to slice off fingers.GRIN It also seems to me that you'd need to have a way to stand them up in order for the chocolate filling to set up and not run out of the berry, maybe an empty egg carton for that size strawberry. I like the suggestion of serving them in a chocolate bowl. I've served raspberry mousse in shaped chocolate clam shells that were the hit of the party!

Thats a really good idea. I also suggest that you make the "chocolate bowl" and if your family likes it, put the chocolate stuffed strawberries in there as filling. I also want to say, if you want to surprise someone, try to hide the chcolate in the strawberry and let them find the oozing goodness. Happy cooking!
