Tuxedo Strawberries

18 medium fresh strawberries, with leaves left on
1 cup (6 ounces) vanilla chips
3 1/2 tsp. shortening, divided
1 1/3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Pastry bag or small heavy-duty resealable plastic bag
#2 pastry tip, optional

Line a tray or baking sheet with waxed paper; set aside. Wash
strawberries and pat dry. In the top of a double boiler over
simmering water, melt vanilla chips and 1 1/2 tsp. shortening. Dip
each strawberry until 2/3 is coated, making the shirt, allowing
excess to drip off. Place on the prepared tray; chill 30 minutes
or until set. Melt chocolate chips and remaining shortening in a
double boiler. To form the jacket, dip each side of the strawberry
into chocolate from tip of the strawberry to top of vanilla coating.
Repeat on the other side leaving a V in the center. Set aside
remaining chocolate. Chill berries 30 minutes or until set. Remelt
reserved chocolate. If using a plastic bag, cut a small hole in
the bottom corner. Insert pastry tip if desired or you may pipe
directly from the bag. Fill bag with the melted chocolate. Pipe a
bow tie at the top of the V and 2 or 3 buttons down the front of
the shirt. Chill for 30 minutes or until set. Completed berries
may be stored in the refrigerator in a covered plastic container
for 1 day. Yield 18 berries.
