When we can find really nice looking strawberries that are big and really juicy, I will make this as a dessert and the kids go wild. Isla truly would like to eat only the chocolate, but I force the strawberry down as well.
I feel like it is something special but still something a little better for us than a regular dessert. They are quite easy to put together, and really an impressive looking dessert if you are having company over.
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Large, washed strawberries
Milk & Dark Chocolate bars
4 oz of chocolate to every 1 pound of strawberries
Chop up the chocolate into pieces and microwave for 1 minute. Stir. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir together. This should be enough to have melted the chocolate completely. If not, microwave in 30 second intervals so as to not burn the chocolate.
Dip washed and dried strawberries in chocolate and cool on a silpat or parchment lined plate. Put these in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.
