Freshly Picked Strawberry Baskets

Makes 6 baskets

Ingredients
140g milk compound chocolate
900g small strawberries
30g white compound chocolate

Method
Melt the milk chocolate to dipping consistency.

Using the leaves as a handle, gently dip each strawberry in the milk chocolate to halfway up the berry. Place the berries onto baking parchment to set.

Melt the white chocolate and use a toothpick to place small seed-size dots neatly over the strawberries.

Fill the berry baskets with the chocolate-dipped strawberries.
