  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with aluminum foil or waxed paper and set aside for now. Wash the strawberries and dry them carefully, as excess water can interfere with the dipping process.
  3. Step 3

    Use a sharp paring knife to cut out the stem of the strawberry in a sharp V-shape, so that the top of the strawberry looks like a heart. Repeat until all of the strawberries have been shaped in this way.
  4. Step 4

    Use a paper towel to gently pat the cut portion of the strawberries, to absorb extra moisture. Too much liquid can cause the chocolate to seize, so try to get the strawberries as dry as possible.
  5. Step 5

    Melt the chocolate candy coating in the microwave, stirring after every 30 seconds to prevent overheating. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
  6. Step 6

    For a partially-dipped look, hold a strawberry by the bottom tip and dip most of it in chocolate, leaving about a half-inch of the bottom un-dipped.
  7. Step 7

    Let excess chocolate drip back into the bowl, then place the berry on the prepared baking sheet.
  8. Step 8

    Sprinkle the dipped strawberry with nuts, sprinkles, or other decorations while the chocolate is still wet.
  9. Step 9

    Your chocolate-dipped strawberry hearts are now ready to eat!
