Chocolate Covered Strawberries – Sooo easy!

Standard

It took me about 1/2 my life thus far to even TRY a chocolate covered strawberry.  I couldn’t figure out how the two flavors would mesh.  WOWSER what I was missing!  I like the dark chocolate  but semi-sweet chocolate works just as well.  Up to your individual taste.  Here’s what goodness looks like:

I couldn’t help but show how you the end product first.  Cannot wait to eat them, and I started like this:

Clean strawberries

Plan ahead a little bit – wash your strawberries and them pat them dry a few times with new paper towels, then air dry.  If they aren’t dry, your chocolate will not be their friend.  Either melt your chocolate on LOW in a double boiler or microwave, stirring occasionally.  I would like to say dunk them by their stems, but that doesn’t always work so swell for me – you can always stick a toothpick in the top.  Dunk and twirl, dunk and twirl, etc.  You get the pic.  So, I just gotta admit, I’m going to take a break and cheer for the 16.1 hand colt that all of America is praying will win.  AND HE DID!  After a 37 year hiatus, we have a Triple Crown Winner!

I assembled my “supplies” and got started after the strawberries were dry:

After refrigerating, I melted some white chocolate and being too lazy to seek out my piping bag, I put it in a small sandwich bag and then snipped the corner.  I piped it around on them to make them pretty, then back to the fridge to set up.  Enjoy!
