Doing shots is already a good time. And when the shot glass is edible, it gets even better. But when that edible shot glass is an inside-out version of everyone’s favorite candified fruit—well, that’s just unbeatable. These chocolate-lined strawberry shot glasses are easy to make and downright delicious, especially when filled with a spirit that complements the cocoa-berry flavors (think bittersweet amari or creamy liqueurs). Plus, they provide you with that healthy serving of fruit your doctor is always going on about. Here, step-by-step instructions for making your own chocolate-covered strawberry shot glasses at home.

Step 1

Chop tops off strawberries and scoop out the insides with a small spoon. The strawberries should be fairly hollow, but not so hollowed out that they will fall apart. Cut bottoms off the strawberries to create a sturdy base.

Step 2

Fill a heatproof metal bowl with 6 oz of chopped semisweet chocolate. Fill a medium saucepan with a couple inches of water and bring to a simmer. Then, turn the heat off and place the bowl over the top of the pot. Stir until the chocolate is melted and smooth.

Step 3

Pour melted chocolate into each hollowed out strawberry, rolling so that the chocolate lines the insides, letting the excess chocolate fall back into the bowl. Place the strawberries on a sheet pan, and set in the fridge until the chocolate hardens, about 30 minutes.

Pour the shot of your choice (anything from Baileys to fernet tastes great) into one of the strawberries, shoot and eat.
