Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
White Almond Bark
Slowly warm 1 row of almond bark squares on the stove in a small pot. Once the consistency is runny, dip the strawberries by holding on to the stems. Stop just before you get to the greens. Lay them on wax paper on a baking sheet until the bark hardens. Set aside the left over bark for the brides.
Slowly warm a 1 cup of chocolate chips on the stove in a small pot. Once the consistency is runny, dip your strawberries twice - once at an angle on one side of your strawberry and once on the other. Leave a white triangle in the middle for the front of the shirt. Once all of the grooms are dipped, take a toothpick and dip it in the chocolate and make two small dots for buttons down the middle of the shirt. Place them in the fridge until their debut.
If needed, add more bark and warm it once again. When the consistency is runny, dip the strawberries by holding on to the stems. Set them on wax paper on a baking sheet and place them in the fridge.
Now make the veils. Cut 1" x 2" rectangles - one for each of your brides. With your needle and white thread, gather one of the 1" sides. Leave 2" of extra thread at each end of this gathering and make a knot. With the excess thread, attach your veil to the strawberry by knotting it around the stem. Trim off the extra strands.
Make sure to remind your guests that the veil is not edible. It may seem obvious but it is better to be cautious.
