8oz.semi-sweet melting chocolateI used Ghirardelli melting wafers
2oz.white melting chocolote
Parchment or wax papper
Rinse, clean and completely dry the strawberries.
Using a double boiler, melt the semi-sweet chocolate in one bowl, and the white chocolate in another. If you are melting with a microwave, melt the chocolate in a glass or pyrex bowl in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until the chocolate melts and compeletly smooth.
Dip the strawberries completely into the chocolate holding with the step or toothpick and lift up, shake the strawberry to let the chocolate drip for a couple of seconds and set onto a lined sheet pan with parchement paper.
Using a disposable pipping bag, fill the white chocolate in the bag and cut the tip of the bag just enough to get the chocolate through and drizzle the lines on the strawberries.
Sprinkle onto or dip the strawberries into your favorite toppings.
Allow to cool 2 at least hours before serving.
The strawberries must be completely dry so that the chocolate sticks to them. If the stems are too long, you can clip them to make them shorter.
Create the stripes as you like, and you can also create different colors of strips using food coloring and white chocolate.
But if you decide to microwave the chocolate, be sure to microwave them in 30 second intervals until they melt completely.
No matter which chocolate you get, always get semi-sweet chocolate instead of milk chocolate because it may end up being too sweet!
If you are using white chocolate, opt out on the chocolate chips and just buy white chocolate wafer melts because a lot of times, my white chocolate chips did not melt right
When dipping the strawberries, make sure you let most of the chocolate run down the strawberry well before placing on a parchment or wax paper. This reduces the chance of your strawberries having an over flowed bottom.
Be sure to use parchment or wax paper to lay them on.
Topping options are endless. You can dip chocolate covered strawberries into literally anything, or just sprinkle them on top instead of dipping.
