How to Make Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Ever wonder how to make chocolate covered strawberries? They are super easy to make and almost as quick to eat. You can make them with milk chocolate or almond bark.
Use fresh strawberries from your garden, or from the store. Sweet strawberries tend to be sweetest compared to large strawberries.
You will need:
1 bag of milk chocolate chips (I use Ghiradelli chocolate)
1 pound strawberries
Silicone mat or wax paper
Fill the microwave container with chocolate chips. Place in the microwave and cook for 1 minute, stopping ever 30 seconds to stir the chocolate, until the chocolate is smooth.
Place the wax paper or silicone mat on a baking sheet.
Take the strawberries with the stems on, and roll into the chocolate until coated 1/4″ to 1/2″ from the top.
Drizzle milk chocolate on the berries or drizzle additional almond bark on the berries (this gives them textured pretty look)
Place the chocolate covered strawberries on the baking sheet and allow to cool. Place the tray in the refrigerator to cool quicker.
Once cooled, you can peel the strawberries from the strawberries from the wax paper/silicone mat carefully.
If you have extra strawberries, make a shortcake.
