Ingredients

  • 24 medium strawberries , washed and dried¬†very well
  • 8 ounces good quality chocolate or melting wafers , chopped
  • 4 ounces white chocolate or melting wafers , chopped

Optional toppings: Chopped nuts, mini chocolate chips

    Instructions

    • Line a baking sheet or the counter with parchment or wax paper. Make sure your strawberries are completely dry before beginning (any water will ruin them). 
    • Add the chocolate to a microwave safe bowl. Melt at 50% power for 30 second intervals, stirring in between. When chocolate is almost melted, remove from microwave and stir until until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
    • Dip each strawberry into the chocolate, turning to coat all sides. Lift and let the chocolate drip for a moment, then place on the prepared baking sheet. Complete with remaining strawberries. Refrigerate 5-10 minutes, or until the chocolate has hardened.
    • While the chocolate is hardening, melt the white chocolate according to the same directions as the milk chocolate. Pour the melted white chocolate into a pastry bag (or a ziptop bag) and cut a small piece off the tip of the bag. Drizzle back and forth over the strawberries. 
    • Refrigerate until firm. Store strawberries in the refrigerator.
