I think we could go as far as to say that
chocolate covered strawberries are HEALTHY!
Strawberries are good for you and so is good chocolate! :o)
The key is moderation. :o)
I know this is a real simple thing,
but I thought I’d post it anyway in case someone
does not know how to dip strawberries.
Use a good quality chocolate, semi-sweet. You can also use almond bark.
Place it in a double boiler (a pan over a pan of water) on med-high heat and melt it down.
You do not want to melt the chocolate in a pan that directly on the heat source,
it will burn your chocolate and it won’t melt evenly.
Once melted,
keep on a med-low heat until you are finished dipping the strawberries.

Wash your strawberries, but not until just before you want to dip them.
Use only ripe ones, but not mushy ones.

Towel dry them, you may even need to blot them.
Get as much of the water off as possible.

Dip 3/4 of the way into melted chocolate.

Place them on wax paper or freezer paper (shinny side up).
Let them dry and firm up, about an hour.

ENJOY! ENJOY!
These make for a wonderful treat!

If you are dipping these for a party it is important to keep them cool,

otherwise they will begin to ooze juice and get all yucked up.

It’s best to dip them and serve them in the same day.

You could dip most anything such as:
marshmallows, pretzels, dried fruit, etc…
