Chocolate Covered Strawberries
6. Alternatively, you could lay the berries on their side, just be sure to use wax paper or some kind of easy-release liner. See this one that fell over? The chocolate stuck to the plate. I had to eat it because it wasn't perfect. (Oh darn!)
7. Place plate in the fridge until the chocolate is firm. Keep dipped berries in the fridge, covered or in a container so the berry doesn't dry out and shrivel.
8. Optional extra decoration: If you want contrasting chocolate drizzle over your base layer of chocolate, you will need some white chocolate chips melted the same way as step 2. Use a fork, dip it into the melted chocolate and drizzle it over the strawberry after step 5. This will make a cleaner edge if the base chocolate is already firm.
