Chocolate dipped strawberries are the perfect dessert. They’re gorgeous enough to impress your sweetie and easy enough to make for your kids. I have even given these to my kids’ teachers for special occasions. And since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to give these yummy little treats a try. You can whip these up in less than an hour and look like a superstar!

Supplies: fresh strawberries with their stems on; chocolate candy melts or chocolate chips; optional garnishes such as white chocolate, dark chocolate, chopped nuts; a disposable frosting bag or quart size zipper bag

Directions: Carefully wash and thoroughly dry the strawberries. Melted chocolate won’t stick to wet strawberries. Melt a bag of chocolate chips or chocolate candy melts in the microwave in a glass bowl. Stir the chocolate every 30 seconds to keep from burning. Hold on tightly to the top of a strawberry and dip it into the chocolate. If you are using chopped nuts, roll the dipped strawberry in a small bowl of chopped nuts. Place the dipped strawberry onto a Silpat or piece parchment paper on top of a tray. If you are using white or dark chocolate for contrast, melt that chocolate in a glass bowl in the microwave. Transfer the melted white or dark chocolate to a disposable frosting bag or a quart size zipper bag. Snip a tiny hole at the bottom of the bag and gently squeeze the bag of chocolate to drizzle thin lines over the strawberries. Refrigerate the strawberries until you are ready to serve, at least 30 minutes.

  5. I love these. Putting a little bit of Crisco in with the semi-sweet chocolate chips makes for a very smooth dipping chocolate. About 1 T to 1C of chocolate.
