chocolate covered strawberries

the goods:
24 ounces good-quality semisweet chocolate chips
6 ounces white chocolate chips
12 to 16 large strawberries

Melt both chocolates in separate glass bowls set over saucepans of simmering water. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Making sure that strawberries are completely dry, hold a strawberry by its leaves and gently dip and turn it in the chocolate to coat. Lay it on its side on the parchment. Repeat with remaining strawberries.  Let them sit at room temperature for 30 minutes to set slightly. Take the melted white chocolate and place it in a pastry bag or plastic storage bag with a small hole cut in the corner, and drizzle stripes over the chocolate. Store in the fridge to set completely.
