RECIPE: Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
There is nothing better than the combination of strawberries and chocolate. The best can be found at the Berryfactory. They are large plump and juicy. If your going to dip strawberries make sure you grab the largest and ripest you can find. Make sure the berries are dry before you start dipping them. Have fun and indulge.

Put the semisweet and white chocolates into 2 separate heat proof medium bowls. Fill 2 medium saucepans with a couple inches of water and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Turn off the heat; set the bowls of chocolate over the water to melt. Stir until smooth. (Alternatively, melt the chocolates in a microwave at half power, for 1 minute, stir and then heat for another minute or until melted.)
Once the chocolates are melted and smooth, remove from the heat. Line a sheet pan with parchment or waxed paper. Holding the strawberry by the stem, dip the fruit into the dark chocolate, lift and twist slightly, letting any excess chocolate fall back into the bowl. Set strawberries on the parchment paper. Repeat with the rest of the strawberries. Dip a fork in the white chocolate and drizzle the white chocolate over the dipped strawberries.
Set the strawberries aside until the chocolate sets, about 30 minutes.
