Cooking Time

Preparation Time : 20

Cook Time : 5

Total Time : 25

Ingredients

Serves 4-6

  • 24 -30 strawberries, green caps in tact

  • 6ounces chocolate, coarsely chopped (your favorite chocolate or what is on hand, can use sweet, semisweet, bittersweet or white)

  • toothpick

Directions

  • 01

    Rinse strawberries, drying them with paper towels.

  • 02

    Melt chocolate in top of double boiler or in microwave (full power in 30 second intervals, until chocolate is melted, stirring often).

  • 03

    Note 1: CHOCOLATE SHOULD NOT BE TOO HOT - IF IT GETS TOO HOT IT WILL DRIP ON THE BERRIES INSTEAD OF ADHERING TO THE BERRIES.

  • 04

    Note 2: BE CAREFUL--OVER HEATING CHOCOLATE MAY CAUSE SCORCHING AND KEEP IT FROM BLENDING PROPERLY.

  • 05

    Insert toothpick into stem end of strawberry and dip 3/4 of berry into chocolate, leaving green cap and some of the red berry showing.

  • 06

    Spear free end of toothpick into a piece of Styrofoam or grapefruit to allow strawberry to dry upside down (alternatively dry strawberries on waxed paper).

  • 07

    Note 3: If chocolate becomes too thick to work with reheat chocolate gently.

  • 08

    Note 4: After chocolate hardens dip tip of berry into contrasting melted chocolate.

  • 09

    After the chocolate hardens discard toothpicks.

  • 10

    These berries are best if eaten within 24 hours, for longer storage refrigerate but serve at room temperature.
