  4. you had me at alcoholic strawberries lol. These look absolutely delicious and you could totally get creative using different colors of them to suit any occasion. love this idea

  5. Love this idea,I never thought about injecting liquor inside of the strawberries! I got to try this!

  6. i look this recipe but I will sub a single-origin dark chocolate for the Ghiradelli white chocolate. I don’t like white chocolate and I find Ghiradelli to be not very good quality.

  7. These look great and sound great. You can’t go wrong on serving strawberries dipped in white chocolate at any function. I had never thought of infusing them with alcohol. This would be a huge hit!
