slice from the stem end of each strawberry, allowing the berries to

carefully into 4 wedges, cutting almost to, but not through, bottoms.
Fan wedges just slightly, taking care not to break; set berries

sugar, and almond extract until light and fluffy.
Gently fold in grated chocolate. Using a teaspoon or decorating bag
