Week 6: chocolate covered strawberries
This week’s post isn’t technically about something baked, but it’s definitely a dessert. A friend of mine is getting married, and somehow plans on feeding everyone herself–thank goodness it’s a small, intimate wedding! I offered to bring one of her favorites, chocolate covered strawberries.
12 large strawberries (the bigger, the better)
1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
Wash the strawberries and pat them dry carefully. Prepare a cookie sheet with waxed paper or nonstick aluminum foil. Pour the chocolate chips into a bowl and microwave them, 30 seconds at a time, until you are able to stir the mixture smooth.
Carefully dip and swirl each strawberry in the chocolate, lifting and twisting at the end. Let them cool on the cookie sheet, then transfer to a plate to be kept in the fridge.
Experiment with a white chocolate drizzle, sprinkles, or nuts. Everyone will love these!
