Ingredients
  • 24 whole strawberries rinsed and dried thoroughly
  • 10 ounces good quality dark or milk chocolate If using bar chocolate, finely chop before melting
  • 5 ounces good quality white chocolate if desired
Instructions
  1. Rinse berries in cool water and dry thoroughly with a paper towel. Arrange in a single layer on a towel and allow to air dry for 10-15 minutes (or until completely dry.)
  2. Place the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and heat at high power for 30 seconds. Stir and heat in 30 second increments until melted and smooth. 
  3. Dip the strawberries, one at a time, in the chocolate turning to coat. Allow the excess to drip off the strawberry and place on the baking sheet lined with parchment. Push the strawberry forward 1/2 inch to help avoid the chocolate puddle from forming at the tip of the berry. Repeat with the remaining berries until all are coated.
  4. Transfer the baking sheet to a cool, dry place to allow the chocolate to set. 
  5. If desired, melt white chocolate in 30 second increments then transfer the melted chocolate to a zip top bag. Snip off a corner and drizzle over the strawberry. 
  6. Allow the chocolate to set.
  7. Serve the strawberries immediately or transfer to an airtight container lined with a paper towel (to absorb moisture) and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
