I'd try putting each strawberry in a separate small paper muffin cup. Then I'd try to pack them snugly in a box that is just big enough to hold the number of strawberries you're shipping. Then I'd wrap that box in a couple of layers of bubble wrap and put it in a larger box. Fill in any extra space in the larger box with bubble wrap.

That should keep them okay until they get to their destination.

Hope this helps.

Be sure to ship them via FedEx.... You don't want the strawberries to sweat (much) and potentially cause your chocolate to sugar bloom.

In general, dipped strawberries are not using tempered chocolate and so there is also a greater risk of having your chocolate melt since untempered chocolate has a lower melting temperature than tempered chocolate. Perhaps you can insulate your package and throw a few ice packs in it. (Of course, it refridgerate your strawberries first, then your ice packs will have less work to do to keep things cold.

Hope this helps,

Depending upon the size of the strawberries you could use Solo or Sweetheart 1 oz. or 2 oz. paper serving cups such as these:

They are inexpensive and sturdy.
