I made these so long ago and have just never posted them, but with it being June, and a huge month when people are getting married and having anniversaries, I figures now would be a good time to get this out of my archives. I always make these for me and my hubby to have on our anniversary, and I think that most people buy theirs cause they think they are complicated. But other then taking a little bit of time, they are so super easy. Enjoy!!
Ingredients
  • 16 ounces milk chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries with leaves
  • toothpicks
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate (optional)

 


Insert toothpicks into the tops of the strawberries. In a double boiler, melt the chocolate and shortening, stirring occasionally until smooth. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Hold by the toothpick and dip strawberries into the chocolate mixture. Set strawberry onto parchment paper and remove toothpick. Refrigerate until chocolate sets.

 

In a double boiler melt the white chocolate and let cool slightly. When cool enough to handle place melted chocolate into either a disposable piping back or zip lock bag. With scissors, clip a little piece of the corner of the bag. (Be careful how much you clip away. You can always clip off more of the bag if you want a thicker stream of chocolate.)

Apply light pressure to bag and slowly drizzle over chocolate.

 

Allow chocolate to set either at room temperature or in the refrigerator and serve.
