  • 12 ounces dark chocolate, melted
  • 12 large strawberries, washed and thoroughly dried
  • gold and silver luster dust
  • 1/2 cup sparkling wine, prosecco or champagne
  • 12 culinary pipettes
  • soft bristle paintbrush
  • piping bag
  • Yield: 1 dozen

Instructions

Cover a work surface with parchment paper. Dip each berry in melted chocolate (Image 1) and place on the parchment paper to dry (Image 2). Allow the berries to stand until the chocolate is firm, about 20 minutes (or refrigerate to speed setting).

Load the dry soft-bristle brush with luster dust and brush it across the set chocolate (Image 1). Cover all of the exposed chocolate with the dust (Image 2).

Place the champagne in a glass. Fill each pipette by squeezing them between your fingers, then insert the open end into the champagne.
