Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

If you're looking for a delicious and romantic Valentine's Day treats, here's a simple mouth-watering idea!  Chocolate covered strawberries can be very expensive, but in just a few easy steps you can make your very own!

Ingredients

  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate (chopped)
  • 3 ounces white chocolate (chopped)
  • 1 pound (about 20) strawberries with stems

Directions

Wash and dry the strawberries well.

Melt the chocolates in separate bowls in a microwave at half power for 1 minute.  Stir and then heat another minute if needed. Repeat until melted.

Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Holding the strawberry by the stem, dip the strawberry into the dark chocolate, lift and twist slightly letting any drips fall back into the bowl. Set strawberries on the wax paper. Repeat with the rest of the strawberries. Once you finish dipping the last strawberry, dip a fork in the white chocolate and drizzle over the dipped strawberries (starting with the first strawberry you dipped, so the chocolates don't blend).

Set the strawberries aside for about 30 minutes until the chocolate sets.
