colors for chocolate covered strawberries (bear with me)...

Okay... making chocolate covered strawberries for a good friend's e-party tomorrow, and I'm thinking of using colored chocolate...

Her colors are purple and silver. I thought of doing half purple and half regular chocolate. Then I thought of doing each strawberry half one color and half another (like purple on one side and white on the other)...

Is this dumb? Will purple chocolate covered strawberries look really silly?

If I do each strawberry two colors, I'd do it like this, only purple and white instead of regular chocolate and white chocolate:

Am I just out of my mind?

I was thinking that was sort of the closest I could come to her purple/silver theme...

chocolate in any color won't look silly esp melted onto a straberry! yum Chat Icon
i think i like each strawberry with one color on it a little better (plus it's prob a lot easier) but i think it would be cute to do some purple and some reg. or some purple and some white choc.

IDK, there's something about purple chocolate that just seems really weird to me. Chat Icon

I'd stick with just a regular milk or dark chocolate.

Sorry JMO.

And I'm a chocolate-holic!!!! Chat Icon

I like the way you think. I can do some all white, some all purple and some a mix. And if people don't like it... well, then more for me to eat! Chat Icon

I would do milk chocolate strawberries, and white chocolate strawberries, then DRIZZLE each with the purple chocolate. I think it will look more appetizing than a purple strawberry.

I like this idea better. Plus, I was just thinking, where else are her colors being used? You don't want to go overboard with the whole purple/silver thing all over the place.

Good luck Kara!! Let us know how they come out!!

Now THERE's an idea.

I'm not entirely sure I can pull it off, but goshdarnit, I'll TRY!!!

Good point... I have no idea. I have a sinking feeling it will be a very odd mix of purple/silver + calla lilies. (Don't ask) I think the drizzling will be more subtle -- and potentially much more appetizing.

I knew you ladies would have good ideas!!

Uh... any drizzling tips?! Chat Icon

ETA - I'll try to take pics for you, Cindy! It'll either be victory pics or "wth did I do?" pics. Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon

Drizzling tip-

Melt the purple chocolate to a very liquid-like consistancy. Then, dunk the tines of a fork in the chocolate and let the chocolate fall off of the fork and onto the already dipped strawberries. Use a back-and-forth motion to get the "Drizzle" effect!!! Mmmmm...now I want some!!Chat Icon

I like the drizzle idea, so it's just a hint of the colors.

What about making them into classy tuxedos, complete with the bow tie and buttons?External Image
And make the bows in the wedding colors?
