Expert Tips

For a different look, use whole strawberries and dip the pointed end of each strawberry into melted chocolate so it's half covered. Set stem-end-down on waxed paper-lined tray. Chill until set. Arrange on top of chilled filling.

Instead of drizzling with semisweet chocolate chips, use white vanilla baking chips.
