You Will Need
- 12 large strawberries, ripe but firm, with green stems and leaves attached
- 12.0 oz semisweet chocolate chips or morsels or a 10-ounce bar of dark chocolate
- A cookie sheet
- Wax paper
- A microwave-safe dish
- A wooden spoon
- Coconut flakes (optional)
- Crushed pistachios (optional)
- Sprinkles (optional)
- Melted white chocolate (optional)
- A fork (optional)
Prepare the strawberries
Gently rinse the strawberries, leaving on the green caps. Do this a few hours before you plan to dip the berries, so they’re completely dry.
Cover a cookie sheet
Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper.
Melt the chocolate
Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe dish using the 'defrost' setting. Microwave it in 10-second increments, stirring with a wooden spoon in between. Take care not to burn it.
Spear the cap of each strawberry with a toothpick, and use it to dip the bottom two-thirds of the berry into the melted chocolate. Lift it out of the chocolate, rotate it clockwise, and wait until the strawberry is no longer dripping before laying it gently on the wax paper.
Chill the strawberries in the refrigerator for at least an hour and up to eight hours before serving. They will last about two hours at room temperature before they start to melt.
