Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

I had to share this, just because it was so simple and SO GOOD! My husband and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary last week, and part of what I did for that was make these chocolate-covered strawberries. I am so happy that strawberry season is upon us here! I tried to make them look a little gourmet, but regardless, they were tasty! Little B's favorite part of helping was eating the chocolate chips (and the final product)!



1 lb. fresh strawberries

approximately 12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips (or use whatever kind you want!)
desired toppings, ie sprinkles, crushed nuts, mini chocolate chips, etc.


Wash and completely dry strawberries, leaving stems on. Using a double boiler (or, if you don't have one like me, in a small pot, boil about a cup of water over medium heat and place a glass bowl over, completely covering the top). Melt chocolate completely, stirring constantly. Place wax paper on a cookie sheet. Once chocolate is melted, dip strawberries, holding by the stems, a turn to coat completely. Dip chocolate-covered strawberry in topping(s) of choice (on only one side of strawberry), and place on wax paper topping side up. If you would like to melt another kind of chocolate to drizzle over top (in the picture I did butterscotch chips), melt about 1/2 cup of chips the same way you did the chocolate and drizzle it over your chocolate covered strawberries (you can do this before or after the chocolate has hardened). Place completed strawberries in the refrigerator until chocolate has hardened.
