Dipped Strawberries

I dipped some strawberries lastnight for dinner, they are something we have quite often around here. I have people ask me to show them how to do this all the time... so I thought that you might like to see what I have learned after dipping a zillion of these yummy little things

First wash and dry your strawberries, I like to just hold them at the top like this. Dip the strawberry into a bowl of chocolate that has been melted in the microwave. Tonight I had white chocolate- but you can use milk chocolate too.

Dip each one and set them on a sheet of parchment paper to dry. If you are going to use sprinkles you will need to do it now before the chocolate dries. I put sprinkles on two of them to show you what they look like.

I like to drizzle with the disposable decorating bags. Place what ever you are using to drizzle in the bag, I usually use two different colors. You can use white or milk or dark chocolate- I had the candy melts already in these two bags, so that is what I used. Heat the bags in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time until smooth

Drizzle each color onto the strawberries- until they look the way you want them to. Don't they look lovely! And they tasted even better.. I timed it from start to finish, it took me 15 minutes to prepare these, so now you know why we have them a lot-- they are very fast to make.

Then I put the bowls of chocolate & the bags on a shelf in my pantry. This way they are ready to go, and I find I use them more often.
