    We make these every summer.Learned how to make them easier thank you. My family also likes to use the white chocolate morsels. Can't wait for strawberries to come back in season.

    Yummy

    Eileen Lorenz from BUFFALO, NY

    Anything with chocolate for me is great, but when you add a healthy ingredient like strawberries, I'm in Heaven.

    Delicious Treat!!

    Kris Watkins from Upper Marlboro, MD

    No matter the occasion, I always make these delicius treats to accompany my main dessert. For an added punch of flavor, I spinkle them with chocolate sprinkles, chopped nuts, ground chocolate cream filled sandwich cookie crumbs, and on holidays red & green spinkles, pink, green & yellow spinkles, orange & black spinkles...you get the picture.

    I made a dozen strawberries and i couldn't stop eating them!!! This is delicious!

    Mmmm

    Sheena Joychan from

    So good and so easy! This doesn't take a lot of time and the results are great. There's always the added benefit of being able to argue that it's a healthy dessert because of the strawberries...so you can indulge in more than just one!

    So much fun!

    Jennifer Souza from Fall River, MA

    This is a fun and easy recipe even for someone as unorganized in the kitchen as myself! I never had so many people ask me for a recipe before. They are also so so pretty when you drizzle white chocolate on top of them.

    Chocolate Strawberries...Mmmm!

    MARYJEAN VALENZANO from SCOTRUN, PA

    All my kids could say was..Mmmmmm! They loved them! My 6 year old ate 3!! And of course she wants one for school tomorrow for snack time! Boy, are her friends going to be jealous! :)

    dry the strawberries!

    bridget martin from RIVERHEAD, NY

    Even a tiny bit of water may change consistency of melted chocolate. You can correct that with oil but the smartest way to cover fruit with chocolate is to make sure the fruit is dry. Children love to make these.

    a sweet way to go

    sandra jackson from GARDENA, CA

    The chocolate and the strawberries are a sweet way to go, a romantic pinic for two, especially using two types of chocolate, I even tried peanut butter with it, and you had a bit of the saltness with the sweetness . I loved it

    love it!!!

    Suzanne Brandenburg from JACKSON, MI

    It melts smooth and it is quick.
