There are many "easy" recipes for chocolate covered strawberries. In truth, you cannot get good results with just “dip the strawberries in melted dark chocolate and drizzle melted white chocolate in swirly patterns over the top”. This is the same as saying; “make a cake” and then giving no recipe. But the following recipe will work each and every time. For more information read Melting Chocolate For Dipping.

12 long stemmed fresh strawberries
1/2 cup good quality chocolate, chopped
2 tsp vegetable shortening [do not substitute]

• Wash and dry the strawberries.
• Place the chocolate pieces in a small bowl and microwave.
• Melt the chocolate and stir smooth.
• Add the shortening and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds longer.
• Stir smooth again. If chocolate does not drip easily, add a little more shortening.
• Dip each strawberry into the melted chocolate.
• Place on parchment paper to dry.
• Let chocolate solidify at room temperature for one to two hours.
• After that, it will be easy transferring the strawberries to the serving platter.
