Chocolate-filled strawberries recipe
12-18 medium to large fresh strawberries
Jelly Belly jelly beans (3-4 per strawberry)
Edible sugar glue*
3-1/2 oz. dark chocolate, finely chopped (preferably 70% cacao)
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 oz (1 tablespoon) unsalted butter, softened
Chop chocolate and place in heatproof bowl, set aside. Bring cream to boil in saucepan over medium-high heat. Pour cream over chocolate in separate bowl, stir to melt. Add butter and whisk till smooth. Let cool to thicken up, then whisk till fluffy. Fill pastry bag or resealable freezer bag with the corner snipped off to fill strawberries.
While ganache cools, use melon baller to scoop tops off the strawberry to create a little cup. Trim bottom tip strawberry with knife to make it stand up. Apply thin layer of edible sugar glue to bottom half of strawberry, then spoon on sprinkles. Fill the strawberry with approximately two teaspoons of chocolate ganache. Finish with four Jelly Belly jelly beans pressed into ganache.
*Edible sugar glue can be found in most cake decorating or crafts stores.
