Ingredients

  • 5 ounces semisweet chocolate, broken into smaller blocks or chopped
  • 5 ounces milk chocolate, broken into smaller blocks or chopped
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 2 pounds strawberries with stems, (1 kg | about 20 strawberries)

Instructions

  • Line a sheet pan with parchment or wax paper. Set aside.
  • Wash strawberries and thoroughly pat dry with paper towel. (The chocolate will not stick if the strawberries are not dried well).
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate and coconut oil. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until completely melted.
  • Pierce the stem-end of a strawberry with a fork and dip strawberry into the melted chocolate. Lift strawberry just above the bowl and twist around a couple of times to let excess chocolate drip off. Place strawberry on lined pan and repeat with remaining strawberries.
  • Chill until the chocolate sets, about 15-30 minutes.
  • To drizzle strawberry with extra chocolate for effect: Melt remaining leftover chocolate, if needed. Dip the tip of a fork into the chocolate and drizzle in a zig-zag pattern over the dipped strawberries. Let set in the refrigerator for a further 30 minutes, or until set.
