Dark chocolate, almond bark is nice and melts easily, but semi sweet morsels can be used as well.
White chocolate or almond bark
Cut fresh strawberries in half, place cut side down onto baking sheet covered with parchment or waxed paper. Secure with a toothpick. Your berries will take on a heart shape. Freeze for at least 45 minutes, but longer is fine too. Melt dark chocolate right before you remove the berries from the freezer.
Remove from freezer. Holding one end of the toothpick, dip strawberries in melted chocolate, trying to get the whole strawberry covered.
Set them on a piece of waxed paper, cut side down, remove toothpicks and dry completely You can also pop them into the freezer again for a few minutes until chocolate is set. Cut away any excess chocolate.
Melt the white chocolate and drizzle on top of the hearts. Sprinkle with red sugar, sugar glitter, sprinkles, nonpareils or crushed toffee.
