Dark Chocolate Covered Strawberries


  • 12 or so jumbo straberries
  • 1 12 oz bag chocolate chips I used Hershey's Special Dark because my mom loves dark
  • 6 oz white chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable shortening


  1. Rinse and completely dry strawberries. I let them dry overnight. If there is any water or soft bruised spots it will totally jack up your chocolate coating process
  2. Melt shortening and dark or whatever type of chocolate according to package directions
  3. Line a baking sheet with wax paper
  4. Holding strawberries by the stem, dip each in chocolate and set on prepared baking sheet
  5. Chill in fridge for at least 30 minutes
  6. Melt 1 tablespoon shortening and white chocolate according to package directions
  7. Using a fork, dip it into the melted white chocolate and sling it back and forth across the chocolate coated strawberries
  8. Chill another 30 minutes minimum
