Ingredients

  • 12 large California strawberries
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • green sprinkles
  • ¼ cup white chocolate chips
  • 2-3 drops of green food coloring *Green candy melts can be used instead of white chocolate and food coloring.

Instructions

  • Wash the strawberries and pat them dry. Line a baking sheet and set it aside.
  • Add dark chocolate chips to a double boiler or a bowl over a small saucepan of simmering water. Melt the chocolate for about 5 minutes, stirring until it is smooth. If using a microwave, heat for 30-second intervals, stirring in between until the chocolate is melted.
  • Dip each strawberry into the melted chocolate, so that it is covered almost up to the stem. Gently place them on the baking sheet after dipping. Leave a few berries out to dip in the white chocolate.
  • Add sprinkles to some of the strawberries immediately after dipping.
  • Place the chocolate-covered strawberries in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes to set.
  • Add the white chocolate chips to a double boiler over medium heat. Melt the white chocolate for about 5 minutes, stirring until it is smooth. If using a microwave, heat for 30-second intervals, stirring in between until the chocolate is melted.
  • Place about half of the melted white chocolate in a piping bag and cut a small hole in one corner. Pipe a white drizzle onto the strawberries.
  • Dip any remaining plain strawberries into the white chocolate and cover with green sprinkles.
  • Add green food coloring to the remaining white chocolate. Put the green mixture into a new piping bag and add a green drizzle onto the dark chocolate strawberries.
  • Place the dipped berries back in the refrigerator for another 10 minutes, or until you are ready to serve.
