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.)
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.
Stir in the food coloring until the desired color is achieved.
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.
Allow the chocolate to set and serve.
Strawberries can be coated in chocolate up to 24 hours in advance.
