i was helping a friend get ready for a baby shower. she showed me how to make chocolate covered strawberries. and it is soooo easy...
1. put some chocolate chip morsels (either white or dark) in a microwavable bowl. 2. add about 1-2 tablespoons of vegetable oil.
3. microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring after each time.
4. let the chocolate cool a little bit. if you dip in the chocolate too soon, the chocolate doesn't stay on as nicely and drips off more easily. you can add food coloring to white chocolate to give you the desired color.
5. dip the strawberries into the chocolate. let them cool on some wax paper.
(if chocolate gets too hard, just put back in the microwave for 15 seconds.)
and you're done! so easy... i'm gonna have to make them for my next party.
if you want the striping like i did, just lift a spoonful of a different color melted chocolate above, and run them across the strawberry.
seriously.. one of the easiest things to make. but i think clean up is not so great.
