Also use ripe, juicy and sweet strawberries. ensure that the skin is not soft. You can keep the leaves if you want or remove them.

This is one dessert that you can make at home and you don’t need to spend a lot on buying such chocolate desserts from out. You can even dip roasted dry fruits like almonds, cashews and pistachios with chocolate.

How to make chocolate dipped strawberries

1. First chop or break the chocolate and take them in a bowl along with oil. You can either microwave the chocolate or melt them in a double boiler.

Cover 3/4 or fully. If there is no stem, then insert a toothpick in the strawberries and dip them in the chocolate with the help of the toothpick.
