Grand Marnier Injected Dark Chocolate Covered Strawberries

I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking the title of this post is chocolate porn.

You would be right.

I had these at a restaurant and I went home and came up with my own recipe.

Grand Marnier Injected Dark Chocolate Covered Strawberries

20 clean and dried strawberries (fresh, not frozen)
1 shot glass of Grand Marnier
1 lb quality dark baking chocolate
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream

Purchasable from Amazon or a drug store (ask the pharmacist), obtain a packet of 8mm (or longer) needle-size syringes.  You do not need a prescription to buy these, at lease in the United States.

Pour a shot of Grand Marnier and fill your syringe with this liquid goodness. Being careful not to stab yourself, inject each strawberry with Grand Marnier by inserting the needle from the top of the strawberry near the stem. Stop injecting each strawberry when the Grand Marnier starts squirting out the pours of the strawberry.

Chop the chocolate into small chunks and in a glass bowl, melt in the microwave with the butter for 1 to 2 minutes (or use a double-boiler if you are unsure of how to melt chocolate in the microwave).

Once melted, add the heavy whipping cream and stir thoroughly (but not so long the chocolate hardens).

Dip each strawberry by the stem and set on wax paper. Let harden in a cool, dry place.

Enjoy. The blissy look most women will give you when eating one of these is classic.
