Chocolate Covered Strawberries

>> Sunday, February 14, 2010

So easy, so delicious and so festive for Valentine's Day. This recipe is simple enough that there isn't really a recipe. I just buy a container of strawberries, a container of chocolate almond bark (also called dipping chocolate) and a container of white chocolate almond bark. (Almond bark is found in the same aisle as chocolate chips in most grocery stores.)

Usually I will wash and dry the strawberries. It's really important for the strawberries to be thoroughly dried or else the chocolate won't adhere well to the strawberry. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Melt a few squares of the chocolate in the microwave in 15-30 second intervals, stirring each time until the chocolate is smooth and melted. Dip the strawberries in the chocolate and place them on the cookie sheet to set up. Often I'll place them in the refrigerator to set faster. Once the chocolate is hardened, melt a little white chocolate in the microwave. Spoon it into a ziploc bag, snip off the corner of the bag and drizzle it back and forth over the strawberries. Beautiful!
