Preparation -- 5 minutes

Buying those beautiful chocolate strawberries in the stores is quite expensive.  they may seem complicated, but they absolutely aren't! so get yourself some chocolate en beautiful strawberries en create your own valentine's gift for your lover, or save this recipe for mother's day!

First, get your bain-marie ready.  making a bain-marie means you add a small amount of water to a pan, bring it to a boil on medium-high heat and place a bowl on top.

The bowl shouldn't touch the water, this way the steam from the boiling water will gently melt the chocolate inside the bowl. Add dark chocolate first.

Don't stir too much, wait and then gently stir them once for lovely perfect melted chocolate. Don't let them become too hot. Place the white chocolate in the second bowl and set it aside.

Finishing the chocolate dipped swizzled strawberries -- 10 minutes

Rinse the strawberries with cold water and pat them dry using paper kitchen towels. Remove the bowl with dark chocolate from the pan. Grab the other bowl and also start gently melting the white chocolate.

Carefully dip the strawberry one by one into the dark chocolate, about half of the strawberries, and when the chocolate stopped dripping transfer the strawberry to the cooling rack or plate.

If you like to add nuts, you need to do this right away before the chocolate isn't sticky enough anymore. Repeat this step for all the strawberries, and don't forget to use the white chocolate as well.

Now for the leftover chocolate, make sure it's still warm enough. You can also put the bowl back onto the pan and heat a little bit more. Then pour the warm chocolate into the small piping bags.  

Make a tiny hole in the tip of the piping bag and slowly drizzle dark chocolate over the white chocolate covered strawberries and white chocolate over the dark chocolate covered strawberries.  

All you have to do is wait until the chocolate cooled off completely and is hard enough to transfer to a nice gift box.
