Chocolate-dipped Strawberries

Just in time for Valentine's Day. Throw in some champagne and candles and you have a romantic after-dinner treat.

Fresh strawberries
Chocolate chips of your choice (I used semi-sweet)

  • Melt the chocolate. I used about 1 1/4 cups of chips for 6 strawberries. If using the stovetop, use a double boiler, constantly stirring. If using a microwave, heat at 70% for about 40 seconds at a time, stirring in between.
  • Make sure strawberries are dry, or chocolate won't stick well and will clump. Dip each strawberry in the chocolate to cover. You could also then dip in nuts or candies for a little something extra.
  • Lay berries on wax paper and refrigerate for 5-10 minutes, until chocolate hardens.
