Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

I suppose there is not a lot I need to say about a chocolate dipped strawberry. We all know them and love them, right?

I had a few leftover from making the strawberry muffins, and there was a partial bag of Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate chips looking at me. What else could I do?

Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
10 large strawberries
1/2 cup chocolate chips
3 Tbsp. half and half

Rinse strawberries, dry thoroughly, and be sure they are at room temperature. Melt chocolate chips in a bowl, over simmering water, until beginning to melt. Stir in half and half until completely combined and smooth. Dip strawberries, as desired, and place on parchment paper to cool. Eat and enjoy within a day or two. (Oh darn!)


  1. Even though there isn't a lot to say about chocolate strawberries, I still think they are delicious and I love eating them, almost as good as chocolate dipped banana!

  2. 'eat within a day or two'? Do yours ever last that long? ;-)
    Another favorite way of eating strawberries: many, many years ago my best friend and I would dip them in cream, roll in dark brown sugar and eat straight away. Delicious!
