Strawberry Shot Glasses – Yes, Please!
I found these at this super cute blog, Sweet Tooth. Warning: be prepared to want to bake your heart out for the next
week year after visiting her site. I seriously printed out 5 recipes and added them to my Recipes I Must Bake Real Soon queue.
That queue is huge by the way.
I would need to take about a month off of work and straight bake. I’m down for it, anyone else in? You can come over and be my little taste testers?
That would be sweet. I’ll be taking applications.
In the mean time:
Strawberry Shot Glasses
24 Fresh Strawberries, hulls removed
1 Package (16 oz) Chocolate and/or Vanilla CANDIQUIK Coating
+ Whatever you would like to fill these with
Filler ideas: your choice of adult beverage concoction, pudding, ice cream, Bailey’s, Kahlua, all of the above!? Check out Erica’s suggestion at Sweet Tooth.
Wash strawberries and pat completely dry (any water remaining on the strawberries will cause the candy coating to seize up).
With a small paring knife (or a strawberry huller), carefully carve out the center (hulls) of the strawberries, going down as far as you can without poking out the bottom and sides.
Slice the very tip of the strawberry off, making a flat base (the chocolate will also assist here, giving it more stability).
Dip the strawberries in the CANDIQUIK, covering about half of the strawberry. I attempted some swirly ones as you can see. I just drizzled some of the chocolate directly in the vanilla tray (do not stir) and dipped a couple directly in.
This worked for about 2 strawberries and then it began to blend too much and resembled chocolate milk.
Place on a wax paper lined baking sheet to set.
Store in the fridge until ready to serve. I recommend making these as close to the serving time as possible…
When ready to serve: fill with your choice of
alcohol filling and top with whipped cream.
