Toffee-Coffee Tarts

These are my mini Toffee-Coffee Tarts I made to add to my menu of desserts I will offer for my catering parties.  I got this recipe from the food network magazine in April issue.  Everyone who tried them loved them!  They were easy to make and don't have a sweet, sweet taste.. it is more of a mild coffee/caramel taste and you can surely eat more than one! *wink*

He is my inspiration on doing this page and all this is decicated to him and his brothers.

Tuxedo Strawberries

Here are the tuxedo strawberries I did for Valentines day.  Sorry it so long for me to post these but I have had a really busy month.  This was my first attempt on these and they were a lot easier than I thought they would be.

You will need:
Fresh washed (make sure they are completely dried) strawberries
White chocolate
chocolate chips or the best chocolate bark you can find if you prefer

First dip the strawberries in melted white chocolate to the neck of the strawberry and let them dry in the fridge. Once dried dip the strawberry in melted chocolate one side slanted then the other to make a "V" shape in front.  With a toothpick dip the tip of the toothpick in the chocolate and make 2 triangles to make the bow and dots to make the buttons.
Let dry in fridge and that is it!  You will have so much fun with these!
