Chocolate Covered Strawberries
(Makes 20-24 covered berries)

Few desserts are as easy as these mouth watering chocolate covered strawberries. Remember that the berries are perishable so it’s best to dip them shortly before serving time.

1 quart very fresh strawberries with fresh green stems, if    available
4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate or commercial chocolate    coating

1. Rinse the berries quickly in cold water and pat dry on     paper towel.

2. Put chocolate in 1 quart microwave-safe measurer or     double boiler. Microwave on 50% power 2-3 minutes,     stirring every minute until melted or melt in double     boiler over medium heat, stirring frequently.

3. Working as quickly as possible, pick, up a berry by the     stem, dip it into the chocolate so that it is covered     about two-thirds of the way up, shake slightly to     remove the excess or scrape it lightly against the edge of     the pan.

4. Place carefully on waxed paper.

5. Chill just until chocolate sets. Store at room     temperature, but do not try to hold more than 8-10     hours.
