For a little bit of variety, dip your strawberries in dark, milk and white chocolates.You can also top them with little sprinkles of nuts, shredded coconut, sprinkles and even pop rocks for that extra bang!

Remember that you can dip your berries with friends and family for fun event at home or at work, kids love it!

1C Dark Chocolate, Chopped

12 Strawberries

ΒΌ C Sliced Almonds, Shredded Coconut (for garnish)

1. Place the chocolate into a bowl, microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Repeat this until the chocolate is melted and smooth.

2. Wash the strawberries and dry them well. Keep the strawberries wrapped in paper towels until you dip. If the berry is wet the chocolate will not stick.

3. Put a sheet of wax paper on a baking sheet. Grab a strawberry by the stem and carefully dip in the chocolate, letting the extra drip off. You want a thin layer of chocolate on the outside.

4. Place the dipped strawberry on the wax paper or plastic wrap, garnish with almonds or coconut and let it cool at room temperature. If you speed up the cooling process in the fridge, the chocolate will weep moisture. It will still taste good, but it wont look pro style

5. You can boost the look of your treats by drizzling melted white chocolate over the strawberries after the first layer has set.
