Notes

I have found that the best brand of melting chocolate is the Ghirardelli Chocolate Melting Wafers.. To avoid sweating or leaking, it's best to make chocolate covered strawberries the same day you plan to serve them. But you can keep the dipped strawberries at room temperature for as long as ten hours, without having an issue.. The strawberries will keep longer if you keep them in a cool, dry place, The eyes and yelow candy hearts can be found at any craft store or on Amazon.
