These chocolate-dipped strawberries are easy to make because the chocolate doesn't require tempering. I used to be a snob, thinking that coating chocolate was inferior. Well, now that coating chocolate has improved over the years, I'm a big fan. Sure, the chocolate doesn't have a nice shine, but it takes the drudgery out of tempering, it won't seize as readily and it holds up better on the berry.

Makes 24 Easy Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 (14-ounce) package dark coating chocolate
  • 24 large strawberries with stems, rinsed and patted dry

Preparation:

  1. Melt coating chocolate in the microwave according to manufacturer's directions, but usually at 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until smooth.

  2. Lay out a large piece of waxed paper on a flat surface. Make sure the strawberries are at room temperature and are as dry as possible. Holding the berries by the stem end, dip into melted chocolate, swirling to make sure all sides are coated. Lift out of the chocolate and let drip a second or two and place on waxed paper to dry completely.

  3. While chocolate-dipped strawberries are best eaten the day they are made, they can be stored for a day by lining the bottom of a plastic container with waxed paper and placing a single layer of berries on it. Top with a second piece of waxed paper and another layer of strawberries. Repeat until the container is full. Top with more waxed paper and the container lid. Place the strawberries in the coldest part of the refrigerator and eat within one day of making them.
