Chocolate squares

Melted dark chocolate

Melted white chocolate

Strawberries

Whipped cream

PREPARATION
1. In a large mixing bowl, whip together the heavy cream, espresso powder, and powdered sugar until you have stiff peaks.

3. Form the chocolate box. Use melted chocolate to ‘glue’ the pieces together, leave the top off. Feel free to decorate the top. Set chocolate.

4. Add the refrigerated whipped coffee cream, top with some whipped cream, add the strawberry and place on the top piece of chocolate

5. To form the tuxedo, dip one side of the white chocolate coated strawberry into dark chocolate at an angle, going to the top of white chocolate coating. Repeat on the other side, leaving a white “v” in the center of the strawberry.

6. With a toothpick, draw a bowtie and buttons with remaining melted dark chocolate.
