Chocolate Covered Strawberries

P5119224

Aren’t these the loveliest, most lusciously red strawberries?

Ingredients: strawberries (preferably with stems as it makes it easier to dip), chocolate

Step 1: Wash the strawberries carefully.  Dry the strawberries.  Lay a sheet of wax paper over a tray (to place the strawberries).

Step 2: Melt the chocolate in a double boiler.  I placed a porcelain bowl (or use a metal or glass bowl) over a pot of boiling water.  Stir until the chocolate is melted.   Use oven mitts to transfer the now hot bowl onto a towel.

Step 3: Gently dip and swirl the strawberry until coated with chocolate.  Tap to remove excess chocolate.  Lay the strawberries on the wax paper.

Step 4: Refrigerate the strawberries until the chocolate hardens.  Once the chocolate hardens, the strawberries are ready to eat!!
