Vodka Infused Chocolate Covered Strawberries.
Note: You will also need a flavor injector.
1. Rinse the strawberries and place them on a plate. After you have rinsed them, take a napkin and dab the strawberries so they are not wet. If the exterior of the strawberries is too wet, this will make the chocolate less likely to stick and make the melted chocolate separate.
2. Take the flavor injector and fill it with the vodka. Take a strawberry and stick it with the injector at the bottom of the strawberry (at the peak). Slowly fill the strawberry with vodka. The strawberry may begin to overflow with the vodka and that is when you need to stop. This usually happens with smaller strawberries, but it is less likely to happy with larger strawberries, unless you want a lot of vodka injected in them.
3. Once all of your strawberries are injected, dab the strawberries again to remove any excess moisture from the vodka and place them in the freezer for 10-12 minutes. This will allow the strawberries to set.
4. Melt the chocolate however you choose. You can use the microwave or a double boiler; I used a double boiler. Also, if you are using the white chocolate drizzle effect, place the white chocolate in a squeeze bottle for later use.
5. Take the strawberries out of the freezer and begin to dip them in the chocolate and place them on a cooling rack. If you want to coat them with toffee, roll them in the toffee after your dip them in the chocolate. Once all of your strawberries are coated, take the squeeze bottle with the white chocolate and drizzle over the strawberries.
If you are going to make these, I recommend making them the night before or 3-5 hours before and refrigerate. This will allow the vodka and the flavor of the strawberries to marry in holy matrimony. The juice will be sweet and delicate.
