Eat and enjoy this simple to make dessert treat by Elise Mercurio, as featured in series 2 of Mercurio's Menu.
Wash and dry the strawberries keeping the leafy part intact (you’ll need this to act as a handle for the dipping later)
Grab a saucepan and fill it with water about a third of the way up and put it on a low heat
Get a bowl that can rest easily on the top without touching the water and place it over the saucepan
Add the dark chocolate and melt, stirring occasionally
When the chocolate is melted take the strawberries (holding them by the leaves) and dip 1 at a time into the chocolate. If it gets a bit fiddly or the leaves pull away use a toothpick inserted into the strawberry to help dip more efficiently. Place dipped strawberries onto a plate that is covered with baking paper so the strawberries are easy to peel off when set
Leave the strawberries to set in a fridge or cool place before dipping into the white chocolate
Repeat previous steps with white chocolate and for an added touch press a mint leaf on the flat side of the dipped strawberry before being left to set. Leave in the fridge so the chocolate hardens
