Ingredients

  • 1 carton (7 ounces) milk chocolate for dipping
  • 4 fresh strawberries
  • 5 milk chocolate candy bars (1.55 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup vanilla or white chips, melted
  • 1/2 cup cold milk
  • 1/4 cup instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1-1/4 cups whipped topping

Nutritional Facts

1 serving equals 619 calories, 34 g fat (20 g saturated fat), 19 mg cholesterol, 243 mg sodium, 72 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 8 g protein.

Directions

  1. Melt dipping chocolate according to package directions; dip strawberries into chocolate and allow excess to drip off. Place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet; set aside.
  2. Cut candy bars in half widthwise. Drizzle with white chocolate; refrigerate until set. Dip the short sides of two candy bar halves into melted chocolate; place at right angles to each other on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet, forming two walls of a box. Dip the short sides of two more candy bar halves; attach at right angles to form a four-walled box. Repeat, forming a second box. Refrigerate boxes and strawberries until set, about 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set; fold in whipped topping.
  4. Place boxes on serving plates. Cut a small hole in the corner of a pastry or plastic bag; insert star pastry tip. Fill bag with pudding mixture; pipe into boxes.
  5. Reheat dipping chocolate if necessary. Dip the long sides of remaining candy bar halves into melted chocolate; adhere to a top edge of each box, forming a lid. Garnish with strawberries. Refrigerate for 10 minutes or until set. Yield: 2 boxes (2 servings each).
