My daughters love, love, LOVE strawberries. The 5 year old looks forward to strawberry season every year and she always begs me to make chocolate covered strawberries. I started making them one summer after it hurt to pay $8.00 for one chocolate strawberry at the mall. Did I mention $8.00 for ONE strawberry? Highway robbery!
So, in case you’re feeling creative and want to try them yourselves, they are super easy to make.
1. Start with freshly washed strawberries, make sure you pat them dry. Put aside for now.
2. Then get dark chocolate baking chips and place them in a microwavable plate.
3. Place in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stir in between intervals to soften up the chips until they’re completely melted. Do NOT over microwave or the chocolate will get yucky… yes… yucky.
4. Dip the strawberries and place unto a plate covered with wax/baking paper. Place in the refrigerator for the chocolate to harden and voila!
