Suspend a bowl above a pan of boiling water making sure it doesn’t touch the water. Break chocolate into pieces and place in the bowl. The steam from the simmering water will heat the bowl and melt the chocolate = no burnt chocolate. Stir until fully melted. Dip strawberries and place on baking sheet/plate. Sprinkle with any extras then leave to cool at room temperature.
Now for the lines on the chocolate (optional) when you want to pipe melted chocolate (ideally of a different colour), put some broken up chocolate into a small plastic freezer bag. Tie the end and place in the microwave and heat for 20 seconds bursts, until the chocolate has melted. Snip a small hole in one corner, then you have the perfect piping bag.
Fairly cheap and will be much better than any chocolates from the supermarket.
