Riley’s Post: Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

Riley saw a commercial for chocolate dipped strawberries and wanted them, right then and there. That didn’t happen. But how long could I deny her especially since she kept bringing it up. So we made some chocolate dipped strawberries and she asked me to post it on my site. How sweet is this kid?

She looks grumpy but I think she’s just concentrating, real……hard. Here’s what you need:

Strawberries and chocolate chips (semi-sweet, dark, milk or white chocolate, your preference). Wash and dry your strawberries. Put chocolate chips in glass bowl and microwave for 45 seconds, stir, microwave for 25 seconds more stirring until melted. Nuke again if needed but don’t over cook, just keep stirring till there are no lumps left. Then……..

Keep on dippin and lay them on a parchment paper covered plate or baking sheet. If you want to get fancy you can swirl a different flavor melted chocolate over the strawberries while on the plate. My white chocolate burned so we didn’t do the swirls. If you really want to impress your Valentine, put the dipped strawberries in mini cupcake papers and in a nice tin or box. Instant Valentine gift.

Put them in the fridge and let the chocolate harden.
