A very dear friend of mine, Susan ask me for a recipe for Dipped Chocolate Strawberries. You could use any flavor you like to dip them in from semi-sweet chocolate, milk chocolate to white chocolate. Pick you favorite for a perfectly dipped strawberry for Valentine's Day. Let the love flow! Enjoy!

To get started make sure you have all these ingredients on hand:

2 pints strawberries (with stems if you can find them)
1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (or whatever you prefer)
2 tablespoons corn syrup
6 tablespoons butter

Now let get read to make us some Perfectly Dipped Chocolate Strawberries:

You will need to wash your strawberries and dry them with paper towels or cloth; make sure they are very dry.
If the strawberries have been refrigerated, let them get to room temperature before dipping.
In a double boiler, add chocolate chips, corn syrup and butter, melt on medium heat, occasionally stirring.
After it is melted, remove from the heat, dip 2/3 of strawberry in chocolate, let drip for a few seconds.
Place the strawberries on sheet pan covered with wax paper or use the method under the tips.
Put the dipped strawberries in refrigerator until they are firm, about 20 minutes.

Tips:

Make sure the strawberries are dry before dipping!
To have perfectly dipped strawberries, in the stem end of the strawberry stick a toothpick, dip in the chocolate, let drip. Then stick toothpick in a block of Styrofoam to let the chocolate dry. Now you have a perfect dipped strawberry!
You can also melt the chocolate, syrup and butter in the microwave using a microwave safe bowl. Check to see if the chocolate is melted every 7 seconds, do not over do!
