Equipment

Ingredients

  • 16 oz. fresh strawberries about 12 large berries
  • 6 oz. chocolate chips or white chocolate chips, about 3/4 cup
  • 1 tsp. vegetable oil for making chocolate smooth

Instructions

  • Pour 6 oz. (3/4 cup) chocolate chips into a deep cup or bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds. Remove, stir, then place back in the microwave for another 30 seconds. Stir. Repeat until fully melted, always working in 30-second intervals.
    Dipping a strawberry into chocolate by holding it by the leaves
  • Firmly but gently hold back the green leaves of the berry (known as the calyx). Tilt the container of melted chocolate to the side and dip the berry at the side of the bowl, swirling it around to coat it as close to the top and as evenly as possible.

Notes

  • Wash your strawberries ahead of time in cold water in a colander. Dry with paper towels.
  • Dip with skewers or your hands.
  • Always microwave in 30 second intervals. Otherwise, your chocolate may seize up and bake in the microwave. It will dry out, crack, and become unusable, so follow the 30 second rule!
  • Be ready to add your toppings fast. The chocolate sets very quickly.
