While they make a wonderful Valentine’s Day dessert, they’re quick and easy enough to make that you don't need a special occasion.

quick & easy

Gently wash your strawberries under a spray of cold water.

step 1

Gently pat dry with a clean dishtowel or paper towels, making sure they're plenty dry before you dip them in chocolate. If they're wet, the chocolate won't stick!

step 2

Place chocolate in a small heat-proof mixing bowl and heat in the microwave 30 seconds at a time until the chocolate is almost completely melted, then remove and give it a good stir.

step 3

Holding each strawberry by the leaves/stem, dip into the melted chocolate, rotating it until it's covered up to just below the stem area.

step 4

Gently slide or tap the edge of the strawberry against the side of the mixing bowl to let the excess chocolate drip off, then place it on the prepared baking sheet to set.

step 5

If you're going to add any sprinkles or other toppings, be sure to decorate the strawberry just after dipping in the chocolate before the chocolate hardens.

step 6

You could also drizzle with some extra chocolate, or double dip them for an extra thick chocolate coating. Serve, and enjoy!
