I love strawberries and I love chocolate (who doesn’t?) so it’s only natural that I would have a supreme love for chocolate covered strawberries! Once upon a time I thought these were super difficult to make….until I tried and discovered that they were one of the simplest treats out there!
First you need to prep your strawberries. Cut off all the tops, wash them, and pat dry with a cloth. If your strawberries are wet they will not get properly coated with chocolate. Also, line a baking tray with wax paper.
Now you need to make your chocolate! I never fully measure my ingredients but I start with approximately 1 cup of chocolate chips and an 1/8 cup of butter for a dozen or so strawberries. I melt the chips and the butter in the microwave for about 45 seconds, stirring halfway through, and then add milk until I achieve my desired consistency.
You want your chocolate to be nice and melty (is that even a word?) but not super runny; basically so it will slowly drip off the spoon but not run.
Once you have both your strawberries and chocolate ready just drop the strawberries one at a time into the chocolate, roll it around to full coat, then place on your wax paper lined tray. Repeat for all your strawberries.
Place your strawberries in the fridge for about an hour or two to harden then serve with a nice dollop of whip cream! Enjoy!
