1 lb large ripe strawberries
1/2 lb (8 oz) chopped chocolate or chocolate chips - milk chocolate, semi sweet chocolate or dark chocolate


  • Rinse the berries well and pat dry, making sure they're completely dry with no drops of water present.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, wax paper, or nonstick foil.
  • Melt your chocolate. The chocolate melts best with indirect heat-- such as a double boiler pan. If you don't have a double boiler, simmer 2 inches of water in a saucepan, then place a heat-safe bowl in the water and melt the chocolate in the bowl.
  • Dip the strawberries one by one into the melted chocolate, coating them 1/2 to 3/4 of the way up.
  • Lift and twist the strawberry as you pull it out of the chocolate, letting the excess drip back into the bowl.
  • Place the dipped strawberries onto the parchment.
  • Do not move or touch them once you've set them down, or you will disturb the chocolate shell.
  • Once your strawberries are decorated, place them in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes till the chocolate sets.
  • You can serve the chocolate strawberries chilled or at room temperature. Chilled strawberries will have a crunch to the chocolate, while room temperature will make the chocolate a bit softer to bite through.
