What you need:

1 dozen large strawberries cored and rinsed

1 package 11.5 – 12 oz. good quality chocolate chips dark, milk or white which every you prefer. I like Guittard or Ghirardelli they are both good quality and melt easily.

With that being said this is a link for tempering chocolate www.guittard.com/in-the kitchen/article/tempering-chocolate.  It’s easy to follow and you’ll do great. http://www.ghirardelli.com/recipes/dipped-strawberries#2Y5j2UhkADxlouuJ.97

Extra Dark Chocolate Chips60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Baking Chips

You’ll need a sheet pan or cookie sheet lined with parchment or a silpat mat. With the berries rinsed and dried and the chocolate tempered your ready to start. Dip each berry into the chocolate and place on the prepared sheet pan.  After covering all the berries they will take about 1 to 2 hours for the chocolate to set at room temp.  At this time if you want to add other chocolates or sprinkles, nuts, or coconut as a garnish you’ll want to do so before the chocolate sets. I recommend you place the pan in the refrigerator for a few minutes or over night to firm them up quicker or until your ready to use them.
