While we used vegan chocolate in this recipe, feel free to use normal chocolate. You can also use a milk or dark chocolate, but the tastes will change of course. What is most important is that you get a chocolate without additives, so it melts better.

#Work Quick

Once everything is melted, and you’ve poured the melted chocolate in the forms, it’s important to work quick. Place the strawberries in place as soon as possible, as the chocolate will start to harden the second it comes into contact with the cool silicone and air.
