Ingredients

Instructions

  • Line a medium baking sheet with wax paper or parchment paper and set aside.
  • Wash strawberries and pat dry with paper towels. Then slice each strawberry in half lengthwise.
  • Using a toothpick, fasten two halves together to make a heart shape. Repeat for remaining strawberries.
  • Add white chocolate to a medium microwaveable bowl, and microwave in 30 second intervals until melted, stirring each time.
  • In a second bowl, repeat previous step for the semisweet chocolate.
  • Dip 5 strawberry hearts into the white chocolate using two forks, and place on prepared baking sheet.
  • Dip remaining 5 strawberry hearts into the semisweet chocolate, and place on baking sheet.
  • Chill 15-30 minutes until chocolate is set.
  • Carefully remove the toothpicks using your fingers.
  • Place melted chocolate into a large ziplock bag and squeeze into the corner. Clip 1/8" off the corner with scissors.
  • Drizzle melted chocolate on top of hearts, or alternatively use decorating gel. For white chocolate hearts, it's best to use semisweet drizzle and vice-versa.
  • Chill another 15 minutes to let the drizzle set. Serve and enjoy!
