Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
Luxury for the tastebuds .. these are sooooo goooood. :-)
Large very fresh strawberries
Wash and dry the strawberries. Leave the stems on.
Use only ripe but still firm berries.
As for the chocolate, you can use any kind you like: bittersweet, white, dark or milk chocolate. Use the best chocolate you can.
A good coating chocolate will hold better but since you are going to use these almost as soon as you make them it is not absolutely necessary.
Melt the chocolate over hot water OR place the chocolate in a small pot which you then place in an electric frying pan set on very low heat.
Set out a tray or large flat pan and line it with waxed paper.
Holding the berries by the stems, carefully dip them to about 2/3 of the way up the berry. Swirl them gently as you withdraw them.
Place the berries on the waxed paper to set.
Place the dipped berries in the refrigerator for a few minutes to chill and firm up the chocolate.
You can experiment by dipping one side in dark chocolate and the other in white chocolate or even those coloured dipping wafers.
