A bumper crop of berries turned into a real treat when I dipped them in chocolate! I like to make these before dinner and put them in the fridge, so they're ready when we're finished eating.—Valerie Gee, Depew, New York

"This was life saver! Bought the chocolate that was supposed to be made for strawberries and it would not melt right. Found this recipe and it was perfect. chocolate melted to perfection and was so easy. Made these for a special candlelight dinner for my husband and he loved them!"

"This is a very easy recipe, very messy but worth it. Mone turned out just as good as those sold in gourmet chocolate shops for a fraction of the cost. I will make these every Valentines Day to give as gifts. I swirled mine with white chocolate"
