All You Need

  • 1 1/2 tsps (7 mL) sugar
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) mascarpone
  • 1 1/2 tsps (7 mL) Club House Imitation Rum Extract
  • 1 lb (500 g) fresh strawberries
  • 16 wooden skewers
  • 7 oz (200 g) white chocolate, chopped
  • 7 oz (200 g) dark chocolate, chopped

Instructions

  1. Mix sugar, mascarpone and extract until thoroughly blended. Set aside.

  2. Cut strawberries in half cross-wise, NOT lengthwise, approximately halfway between the tip and the stem.

  3. Using a paring knife or small spoon, remove a small amount of pulp from the inside of each strawberry half.

  4. Fill each half with the mascarpone mixture and put the strawberries back together using a skewer to secure them together.

  5. Place chopped white chocolate in stainless steel bowl. Melt over a double boiler.

  6. Dip ¾ of each strawberry into the white chocolate. Place on parchment lined tray and repeat with remaining strawberries. Place tray of strawberries into refrigerator for 5 minutes.

  7. Meanwhile, place chopped dark chocolate in another stainless steel bowl. Melt over a double boiler.

  8. Remove strawberries from refrigerator and dip each one into the dark chocolate on a 45° angle from both sides to make the jacket (forming a “V” of white chocolate).

  9. Using a fine tipped piping bag filled with dark chocolate, apply the bowtie and buttons onto the middle of the white chocolate.

  10. . Refrigerate until required. Once chocolate is hardened, remove skewer. Let strawberries sit at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.

  11. Chef’s Tip: Use Cake Mate Heart Décors as the buttons and bowtie.
