  • Red Ripe Strawberries
  • Ghirardelli White Or Dark Melting Wafers


  • Sprinkles
  • Chopped Nuts
  • Crushed freeze-dried fruit
  • Dried coconut
  • Mini chocolate chips


  • Line a baking sheet with wax paper, parchment paper, or a silicone baking mat.
  • Wash strawberries and pat completely dry.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt desired melting wafers on half power for 30 second increments, stir until smooth.
  • Grab the strawberry by the stem and dip into the chocolate. Lift directly above the bowl and gently swirl the strawberry in circular motions to remove excess chocolate.
  • Place on prepared baking sheet. Garnish if desired, then let set until firm, about 5-10 minutes.
  • If using a contrasting chocolate, drizzle, then garnish if desired. Let set until firm, about 5 -10 minutes.
  • Serve immediately, package for gifting, use as a garnish, or store until needed. To store: refrigerate in an airtight container lined with paper towels for 2-3 days.
