Who doesn't love them?? Here's five easy steps from Real Simple toward these beauties!!!
And they are healthier than just PLAIN chocolate....
1. Chop the chocolate (coarsely chop 4 oz. of semi-sweet chocolate then wash and dry 1 pound of strawberries (about 20)
2. Melt the chocolate (Place the chocolate in a glass bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until melted and smooth)
3. Dip the strawberries. (holding the strawberry by the stem end, dip in the melted chocolate, letting the excess chocolate drip off. Your strawberries must be DRY. Repeat with remaining berries)
4.Place on a pan. (transfer the dipped strawberries onto a baking sheet lined with wax paper. As you set each berry down, slide it 1/2 inch to the side to prevent formation of a chocolate foot)
5. Chill, then enjoy! (refrigerate the strawberries until the chocolate is firm, at least 30 minutes...go for a walk if you need to! They will keep for up to 3 days, covered in the refrigerator.
Enjoy! What about you?? Do you like chocolate covered strawberries??
