What sort of CHOCOLATE SHOULD Using FOR CHOCOLATE COVERED STRAWBERRIES?
Since this’s such an easy formula with only 2 standard ingredients, the caliber of chocolate is truly essential. The better quality of milk chocolate, the happier they are going to taste, and also I have discovered that Baking Chocolate is most effective.
A discounted bag of chocolate chips won’t taste nearly as good or even melt easily. Higher quality chocolate (or cooking chocolate chips) preferences less prepared, melts easier, and truly helps give the strawberries a great gorgeous coat after dipping.
I typically use Ghirardelli baking potato chips, or maybe Baker’s Baking Chocolate as well as I am constantly pleased with the quality and cost. I prefer semi-sweet or bittersweet, though you are able to use milk chocolate, bittersweet, semi-sweet, or maybe gray milk chocolate for dipping strawberries.

The simplest way to melt milk chocolate is inside a two-fold boiler or in the microwave. When you do not have a double boiler, you are able to create yummy with an easy saucepan and heat safe cup bowl (see tutorial below).
The best way to MAKE Your own personal DOUBLE BOILER:
Make certain there are several inches of room between the bottom part of the water and the bowl.
Mix until the extra chocolate has melted.
Indeed, you can melt chocolate potato chips within the microwave so long as they’re a top quality brand of cooking chocolate chips. I would like using these Ghirardelli Baking Chips.

Pick great strawberries.
Select firm, strawberries that are ripe with no bruises and if feasible, strawberries which are white right up towards the base.
Use room temperature strawberries as well as DRY THEM truly well.
Clean them and lightly dry them all over and have a papers towel. You need to ensure they are extremely dry, or else the chocolate will not set on them appropriately.
Temper the chocolate.
All that you have to accomplish to temper chocolate that is melted is reserve several of the dark chocolate to mix in during the end, after the majority of it’s already been melted.
After you have melted the chocolate and it is smooth, take away the bowl from high heat and pour the reserved milk chocolate chips.
