Melting chocolate in a double boiler:

  3. Do not cover the pot.
  4. Stir constantly until the chocolate melts and is smooth.
  5. Remove the top of the boiler from the hot water.
If you don't have double boiler:
  1. Fill the half of the saucepan with water and place on low heat.
  2. Put the chocolate chips on a glass bowl and place the bowl on the hot water in the saucepan.
  3. Stir constantly and let the chocolate melt.
  4. Carefully remove from the glass bowl from the saucepan, it will be hot.
Dipping the strawberries:
  1. Take one of the strawberries, first dip it in the melted chocolate.
  2. Then dip it in the pistachios.
  3. Place the chocolate pistachio covered strawberries on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper to harden.
  4. Repeat the same with other strawberries.
  5. It will take around 20-30 minutes for the chocolate to harden.
If you don't like pistachios you could avoid this, dip just in the chocolates.
You could do this with other fruits or nuts like cherries, apples, cashew nuts, walnuts etc
