Chocolate Covered Strawberries

One of my favorite treats is chocolate covered strawberries. They are delicious and I don't feel so guilty after having it, since there is real fruit in it. The whole process takes about 15 mins if you want to do it yourself. My number one tip is to wash and dry the fruit ahead of time, so that the chocolate does not get clumpy. I washed and dried the strawberries an hour ahead of time and the chocolate went on really smoothly. I used chocolate chips by Dolci Frutta. The directions said to melt the chips for 2 minutes in the microwave but, my first batch burnt a little, so I only had the chips in for a minute and a half the second time around. It really depends on the power of your microwave. I then dipped the strawberries one by one in the chocolate, and set them on aluminum foil to cool off for about 10 mins. Then I placed them in the refrigerator for about an hour before serving them to my girlfriends. Refrigerating is not necessary if you are serving the fruit right away. My friends loved the sweet treat.
