Chocolate-covered strawberries

Happy Valentines Day!  I make these every year for Frank, super-cheap and his favorite V-day treat.  These are a no-brainer, so delicious and a perfect dessert option for a big dinner party or just a weeknight.  All you need are stawberries and chocolate chips.  Plus, they store and save really well.

Chocolate-covered strawberries

  • 1 lb fresh strawberries, washed and dried
  • 1 bag of semi-sweet chocoalte chips
  • parchment paper

In a small saucepan on the lowest heat setting, melt the chocolate chips, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon.  Once melted, dip the strawberries into the chocolate, twisting on the way out to keep the chocolate from dripping.  Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Refrigerate for an hour or until the chocolate hardens. 

*If you like white chocolate, you can melt a little of it in the small way and use a fork to drizzle melted white chocolate over the chocolate-covered strawberries for some extra pizazz.
