Nutrition per serving may change if servings are adjusted.
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
12 large strawberries or 24 small, stems attached, at room temperature
2 tablespoons freshly grated lime zest
Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper.
Place chocolate chips in a small glass bowl. Microwave on Medium for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving in 20-second intervals until melted, stirring after each interval. (Alternatively, melt in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water.)
Dip half to two-thirds of each strawberry into the melted chocolate. Let the excess drip back into the bowl. Place the dipped fruit on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle lime zest over the chocolate. Refrigerate until the chocolate is set, about 30 minutes.
Make Ahead Tip: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 1 day.
