Wash and thoroughly dry your strawberries. They must be completely dry before you dip them in chocolate.
Put toothpicks in the end of the strawberries. Lightly pull the stems back toward the toothpick so they don't get into the chocolate.
Melt your chocolate according to directions.
Holding on to the toothpick, drip the strawberries in the chocolate, allow excess chocolate to drip off or wipe off on the edges of the bowl.
If adding sprinkles or other topping, add now while the chocolate is melted.
Either place on parchment or put the end of the toothpick into the stryophoe board upside down to allow the strawberries to dry.
Once dry you can continue to decorate with edible spray or paint with edible luster dust. You can also add a different colored melted chocolate to a pastry bag and drizzle over the dried strawberries.
Once completely dry, remove the toothpicks and enjoy.
If the melted chocolate is too thick, add a teaspoon or two of shortening to thin out the chocolate. The chocolate should leave a smooth coating on the strawberry, without any drips or points.
These are best the day they are made. But, they will last about 12 hours at room temperate out or 1-2 days in the fridge.
