Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

So elegant, yet so simple to make. The shortening keeps the chocolate just a bit soft, so when you bite into it, the whole chocolate coating doesn’t break off into pieces.

So elegant, yet so simple to make. The shortening keeps the chocolate just a bit soft, so when you bite into it, the whole chocolate coating doesn’t break off into pieces.
Ingredients
  • 18 oz GF semi-sweet or dark chocolate
  • 2 Tbsp GF vegetable shortening
  • 36 strawberries, room temperature
  • Garnish (optional):
  • 4 oz GF white chocolate
Instructions
  1. Wash and completely dry strawberries.
  2. Melt and temper (optional) chocolate with shortening and stir until smooth.
  3. Hold strawberry gently by the stem (or use a toothpick), and dip into chocolate, allowing excess to drip off. Lay onto a lined baking sheet, or if using a toothpick place it stuck upside down into a piece of Styrofoam (then you won't get a flat edge).
  4. Refrigerate for 10 minutes, just until chocolate is set, then remove.
  5. If desired, melt white chocolate, place in a piping bag (or plastic baggie with tip snipped off), and drizzle across berries. Refrigerate for 5 minutes until set.
  6. Best if made and served in the same day, and stored at room temperature (if refrigerated, condensation will form on the berries/chocolate).
