Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries

  • 1 cup Strawberries (with Calyx)
  • Chipped chocolate (milk chocolate, dark chocolate or white chocolate to go with your Strawberries)

Wash the Strawberries. (Allow to air dry completely before dipping in melted chocolate) Fill 1 medium saucepan with a couple inches of water and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Turn off the heat; set the bowl of chipped chocolate over the water to melt. Stir until smooth. (Alternatively, melt the chocolates in a microwave for 30 seconds, stir and then heat for 30 seconds until melted- Never microwave your chocolate for more than 30 seconds at a time..)

With clean Strawberries and smooth, melted chocolate, you're ready to start dipping! Before you begin, make sure you've set out a large piece of parchment paper. Parchment paper offers a completely non-stick surface, which allows the underside of your chocolate Strawberries to cool with a smooth, flat surface. To dip the Strawberries, pull all the leafy greens carefully into your fingers, then submerge the red flesh of the Strawberry into the chocolate. Gently swirl the Strawberry around the pool of chocolate, making sure all sides are evenly coated. If you're going gourmet, now's the time to decorate your Strawberries! Sprinkle on your favorite nonpareils, crushed candies or sparkling sugars.
