Chocolate Covered Strawberries

In lieu of Valentine's Day, I thought I would post how to make chocolate covered strawberries. It is very simple and delicious. Enjoy!

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

16 oz chocolate chips
2 TBSP oil

Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler. I don't have one of these, so place a glass bowl on top of a sauce pan with water in it. Place just enough water in the sauce pan to where when the water boils, it won't touch the glass bowl. Place chocolate and oil in bowl. Heat over medium low heat until chocolate is completely melted. Make sure that the water does not mix with the chocolate. Dip each strawberry into the chocolate, covering as much as you desire and then place the strawberry on wax paper or in my case in the steamer rack holes. I did this so I wouldn't have a flat edge, but it really doesn't matter. Place strawberries in fridge for 15 minutes until chocolate is hardened. If you desire, repeat this process with more chocolate. Store in container, in fridge until ready to serve. This is an easy and inexpensive treat.

Melt chocolate.

I used a steamer basket to hold my strawberries. You could also use a colander.

I dipped my strawberries a second time in white chocolate, then colored the white chocolate pink and tried to make them look artsy. Yum!
