Delicious.A couple of tips. You can melt the chocolate in a microwave @ 50% power, for a min.- 1 1/2 min. stir, then melt at 10 second intervals, stirring each time, until chocolate is melted. ( I think this is easier). Watch closely, timing will depend on the wattage of your microwave. Also, if you don't want "flat" spots on your berries, stick a toothpick in the stem end, dip in melted chocolate, let excess drip off, and then stick toothpick (with strawberrie attached) in a block of styrofoam to cool. Hope this helps.
Here is a trick for drying these without them touching anything. Insert a toothpick into the stem end of the strawberry and turn upside down. Stick the other end into a peice of styrofoam. Works like a charm!!
I am unfortunately the dissenting voice in these reviews and even more unfortunately, it took two tries with expensive chocolate and fresh butter to find this out. During both tries, I ended up with a grainy textured mess and still cannot figure out why, because I regularly use make chocolate dipped goodies and just decided to try a different recipe than my regular. Went back to my old method, but thank you for posting.
