I guess I'm still in the Valentines day mood because I just can't get enough of making (and eating yum yum) chocolate dipped strawberries. Not only are they easy, but they look beautiful and taste amazing. AND they're somewhat healthy (at least that's what I tell myself as I grab my fifth or sixth ha).
I thought you had to have dipping chocolate to make them, but then I found a great recipe for making them with plain old chocolate chips, yay. I don't have a double boiler, so I just used two saucepans to melt the chocolate chips...fancy eh?
Before I melted the chocolate I had the strawberries all rinsed and ready to be dipped. I didn't have any white chocolate so I found some white sprinkles to make them 'prettier'. Once the chocolate was melted I just transferred it to a small but deep dish and started dipping!
I covered as much of the strawberry as I could in the chocolate and then sort of twisted them as I pulled them out to catch the drips. You have to work somewhat quickly since the chocolate thickens quickly and makes it harder to coat the strawberries.
It took them about an hour or maybe a little more to harden enough to transfer to a different plate. They probably would have hardened quicker in the fridge but I hate cold strawberries so I just waited patiently while they hardened on the counter. It was worth the wait too, they were so so good!
