Dipped Strawberries-Taste of Home

I must be thinking about summer today...I love fresh strawberries and when they're dipped.... OMG.... a great little idea for a baby or wedding shower.  There's nothing better than chocolate and strawberries... my mouth is watering right now.


The Recipe:
Ingredients?
  • 1 quart fresh strawberries with stems
  • 1-2/3 cups vanilla or white chips
  • 2 tablespoons shortening, divided
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
Directions:
  • Wash strawberries and gently pat until completely dry. In a
  • microwave, melt vanilla chips and 1 tablespoon shortening at 70%
  • power for 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 10- to 20-second
  • intervals, stirring until smooth.

  • Dip each strawberry until two-thirds of the berry is coated, allowing
  • the excess to drip off. Place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet;
  • refrigerate for 30 minutes or until set.

  • Melt chocolate chips and remaining shortening; stir until smooth. Dip
  • each strawberry until one-third is coated, allowing the excess to
  • drip off. Return to baking sheet; refrigerate for 30 minutes or
  • until set. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
