12 strawberries, washed and dried
4.5 oz. semi-sweet chocolate (¾ cup), melted
Wash and dry the strawberries very well. The strawberries have to be really dry or else the chocolate will not stick on. They have to be SUPER dry.
Melt the chocolate either on the stove or in the microwave:
On the stove: Bring 2 inches of water to a low simmer in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Then turn the heat to low and place a large heatproof bowl of chocolate chips on the mouth of the pot. Make sure that there is a gap of a few inches in between the bottom of the bowl and the water (you can also place a bowl on a steamer attachment on top of your pot). Stir the chocolate constantly as it melts. Stir until the chocolate is completely smooth and melted. This should take a few minutes.
In the microwave: The second way to melt chocolate (and an easier way) is in the microwave. Place the chocolate into a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals. Remove the bowl at each interval and stir well. Repeat until the chocolate has completely melted. Stir until completely smooth.
Dip strawberries into melted semi-sweet chocolate and place on a sheet baking pan lined with parchment paper.
Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator and chill for 30 minutes until the chocolate is set.
