Chocolate Dipped Strawberries


1 cup milk or dark chocolate melts
1 cup white chocolate melts
2 punnets (500g) strawberries

Microwavable bowls x2
Metal spoons
Empty egg cartons
Disposable piping bags

  1. Melt milk chocolate and white chocolate melts, in separate bowls, one at a time, in a microwave on medium for 30 seconds, stirring after each time until smooth.
  2. Line a tray with non-stick baking paper. Thread strawberries onto skewers. Then dip half the strawberries in melted milk chocolate and half in white chocolate. Poke skewers into the egg cartons. When set, remove the strawberries from the skewers and place onto the tray.
  3. Place the remaining melted chocolate in separate disposable piping bags. Drizzle the opposite colour chocolate over the strawberries, allow to set and then serve.
Note: Make the same day as serving, otherwise the juice from strawberries will soften chocolate.  

Melting Chocolate
If you don't have a microwave, you can melt chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth. Be careful that the base of the bowl does not touch the water.
