sure :D
take small to medium sized strawberries.
cut a small amount off both ends (so that they will sit flat)
on the large end, take your knife and cut around the light coloured flesh to make a sort of pit in the strawberry.
put a drop or two of your preferred liqueur inside each strawberry.

in a microwave safe cup, break up four/five pieces of good quality dark cooking chocolate and add about 3/4 teaspoon of butter (not margarine - it has to be REAL butter :D )
place in microwave for 30 seconds.
have a look at it - it should be starting to melt at the edges.
put it back in the microwave for about 40seconds or until it is mostly melted. (you have to watch it - every microwave is different and you don't want the chocolate to burn).
while hot, stir the mixture quickly with a spoon until it it smooth and runny.
spoon into each strawberry.
dust everything with icing sugar :D
