Arguably, this is the best idea for a combination anyone has ever had.

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 pound large strawberries (about 20), washed and dried well
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped pistachios (optional)

Directions

  1. Place chocolate in a bowl set over (not in) a saucepan of simmering water. Stir occasionally, until melted, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

  2. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. One at a time, dip each strawberry in chocolate, twirling to coat; then sprinkle chocolate-covered portion with pistachios, if using, and place on waxed paper.

  3. Chill chocolate-dipped strawberries at least 15 minutes to set chocolate. (Strawberries should not be stored in refrigerator longer than 1 hour as condensation drops may collect on the chocolate.)

    Rather than putting them on wax or parchment paper, I stuck them with toothpicks and stuck the toothpick into styrofoam and put in the fridge

    I use white bark chocolate instead of regular chocolate. I sprinkle them with red or pink color sugar. Awesome!

    Yum. Made these with my preschooler. Had a good time. Used crushed almonds instead.

    If you are trying to eat healthy, these chocolate-dipped strawberries are about the best chocolate dessert you can make.
