*** you can save some strawberries and dip in white chocolate and drizzle with dark chocolate or sprinkle mini chocolate chips.Design can be as desired. (I like lines).  Keep strawberries at room temperature and serve within couple hours or refrigerate for up to one or two days (chocolate will start to separate from the strawberries after being cooled).
