Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Ingredients:

Strawberries

Chocolate Candy Melts

Toothpicks

Styrofoam Board or Parchment Paper

Vegetable shortening

Sprinkles, edible glitter, luster dust, crushed cookies, candy, etc.

Instructions:

Wash and thoroughly dry your strawberries. (They must be completely dry before you dip them in chocolate).

Put toothpicks in the end of the strawberries. Lightly pull the stems back toward the toothpick so they don’t get into the chocolate.

Melt your chocolate according to the directions.

Holding on to the toothpick, drip the strawberries in the chocolate, allow excess chocolate to drip off or wipe off on the edges of the bowl.

If adding sprinkles or other topping, add them while the chocolate is melting.

Either place on parchment or put the end of the toothpick into the styrofoam board upside down to allow the strawberries to dry.

Once dry you can continue to decorate with edible spray or paint with edible luster dust.

You can also add a different colour melted chocolate to a pastry bag and drizzle over the dried strawberries.

Once completely dry, remove the toothpicks and enjoy.

Keep in mind, if the melted chocolate is too thick; add a teaspoon or two of shortening to thin out the chocolate. The chocolate should leave a smooth coating on the strawberry, without any drips or points.
