    This recipe for HOMEMADE CHOCOLATE-COVERED STRAWBERRIES gives a few more tips to the above
    it calls for

  2. strawberries to be washed and patted dry with paper towels ( If you don’t start with completely dry strawberries, it will ruin the chocolate.)
  3. leaving the green stems intact
  4. Melting the chocolate chips in 30-second increments, in the microwave, stirring each time until the chocolate is completely melted.
  5. When you dip the strawberries grasp the strawberry by the green top, roll the strawberry into the chocolate, and give it a little shake when you pull the strawberry out of the chocolate. Point the strawberry upward, and allow the chocolate to cover most of the strawberry.
  6. If you want to decorate with sprinkles or nuts, sprinkle the strawberry now, while the chocolate is still soft. Place dipped strawberry on waxed paper. (You can also drizzle strawberries with a little white chocolate. Store these dipped strawberries in the refrigerator.)
