10-14 Fresh juicy red Strawberries(large size)
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup white chocolate/ thin cookie icing for drizzle

1) Wash the strawberries and place on paper towel to dry. Dap them dry completely. Keep the strawberry leaves on.
2) Place small pot with water on the stove.(To make double boiler to melt the chocolate)
3) Melt the chocolate chips in a bowl  in microwave for 40 seconds. Stir.
