Directions

  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, or in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, cook chocolate until melted. Stir occasionally until chocolate is smooth. Holding berries by the stem, dip each one in molten chocolate, about three-quarters of the way to the stem. Place, stem side down, on wire rack and chill in refrigerator until hardened.

I have been doing this on my own for years. I just thought I would include some other information I hope might help some out. Make sure to use room temperature, washed and thoroughly dried strawberries. Often I will go to the local specialty market where I can hand pick individual strawberries to get the perfect size and shape. I bring them home, wash and let them dry. I generally hold mine by the stem into the chocolate and spoon the chocolate over them...I learned from experience that often when dipping them the stem will break off otherwise...so mine are more chocolate covered strawberries than chocolate dipped. I then place mine on wax paper lined trays. Sometimes I drizzle mine with some melted white chocolate for an elegant touch. Then I refrigerate about an hour. Be sure to use high qualtiy chocolate...and no need to add shortening either. I never liked it that way (some recipes call for it) I personally don't like using it because of the trans fat. They don't last long! And, they are wonderful for parties!

These are really easy and impressive! Just a few pointers I learned from Hubby the Produce Clerk: 1. Wash the berries (they can be sandy) and always dry strawberries (pat with a kitchen towel) or they mush up really fast.2.When you melt chocolate in the microwave, it's easy to burn it if you keep cooking it until it loses its shape. When the chocolate chips look glossy, stir them and micro on in short increments until it stirs smooth. You have to serve these within the day because the heat from the chocolate makes the berries skin go squishy before long. :)

Purchased Bittersweet chocolate in bulk form as a saran-wrapped block. Shaved chocolate into slivers, then microwaved in pyrex bowl on low power until melted. Berries should be rinsed and DRIED before dipping. If berry is wet, chocolate will sluff away in places. A *trick* for dipping: stick two toothpicks into strawberry near stem/leaves. After dipping berry, use toothpicks to turn berry chocolate side up, lower berry to wire rack, then remove and re-use toothpicks.
