Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Back in February when I posted about our Valentine's Day fun I had some delicious Chocolate Covered Strawberries. Jane Anne over at Gravity of Motion and Owen Home asked me how to make them. Sorry it's taken me so long to post the directions but here they are...
You will need Strawberries, of course, wax paper, and chocolate. I like real CHOCOLATE so I use Baker's. You can also use chocolate chips, Almond Bark or Wilton's Candy Melts. Read the back of the package for melting directions. You can also melt some white chocolate in a ziploc bag and cut a small section of the corner off to add some white lines and to add some interest.

Once all your chocolate is melted you just start dipping. Be sure to leave a little of the red showing, this makes it prettier. Once dipped you put the strawberries onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Once all your strawberries are dipped you slide the pan into the refrigerator until the chocolate is set. Once that happens they are ready to eat.

These are so simple to make but look like you spent hours making them. And displayed like this they are so pretty!

Happy Cooking!
