The top bowl SHOULD NOT touch the water in the pot *Never let the water come to a boil. a very light simmer is ok. You want the steam to melt the chocolate slow and low. *Don't allow steam to escape from the pot. The bowl should fit very snug. *Continue stirring the chocolate until it has completely melted. Don't Want a Flat Side? To prevent a flat side: Dip the strawberry into the chocolate & insert a toothpick into the top of the strawberry. Place the toothpick into a styrofoam block to hold the strawberry (bottoms up) until it hardens. Be Creative! Chocolate Covered Strawberries can be decorated in soooo many ways. Dip the ends in crushed nuts or crushed cookies for an added crunch. Add food coloring to white chocolate or almond bark to make different color strawberries and drizzle.
