When purchasing (or picking) your strawberries, only select the ones that are red all the way to the tip. Whitish green tips mean the berries are not quite ripe.
I use semi sweet chocolate for dipping and white chocolate for drizzling.
Break the chocolate into cubes (today I used 3 ounces of semi sweet chocolate, 1 ounce white). Melt the chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir, and then heat for another 30 seconds (less chocolate, less time). Heat an additional 10 seconds at a time if needed.
Cover your plate with a sheet of wax paper (this is important, I forgot this step and had to scrape my berries off the plate). Dip the berries one at a time and place each onto the wax paper to begin cooling. You may need to reheat the chocolate for 10 seconds or so as you proceed.
Melt the white chocolate and drizzled it over some (or all) of the chocolate dipped berries.
When you bite into one of these beauties, the chocolate crunches a little and the berry explodes with juiciness. Easy, elegant and best of all, a scrumptious confection.
