Juicy strawberries are made even better when dipped in chocolate. And to take your berries a step further, try coating them with another flavor and/or texture boosting ingredient before the chocolate sets. We like using various types of chopped nuts, shredded coconut, cocoa powder, etc.
16 large strawberries, washed and patted completely dry with paper towels
8 ounces bittersweet or milk chocolate, coarsely chopped or grated
How to Make It
Place berries on parchmentlined baking sheet and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 1 hour.
Place chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high, just until melted, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk until smooth.
Hold a berry by stem end and dip three-quarters of it into melted chocolate, making sure to coat berry's surface and letting excess drip back into bowl. Return to parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining strawberries. Refrigerate until chocolate is set, about 1 hour, or up to 6 hours.
