A special valentines day recipe.

Whipped cream Stuffed Chocolate Dipped Strawberries


    1 lb strawberries
    8 oz sweet chocolate
    1 pot of heavy whipping cream
    1/4 cup of sugar
    chopped pistachios or toasted almonds or melted white chocolate
    A cream whipper and cream chargers


Using a knife cut the stems off the strawberries and core the centres, being careful not to cut entirely through the strawberries. Add the heavy cream and a 1/4 cup of sugar to your cream whipper along with a cream charger. Pipe the whipped cream into the cored strawberries. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with wax paper, set aside.
Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pot of boiling water. Heat chocolate, stirring occasionally until melted. Dip stuffed strawberries in melted chocolate. Transfer dipped strawberries to a prepared baking sheet (sprinkle nuts over chocolate coating before allowing chocolate to cool). Transfer to refrigerator and chill until chocolate has set. Drizzle with melted white chocolate if desired. For best results serve immediately.
