Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

If you’ve ever eaten a strawberry dipped in chocolate, you know how divine they taste, and as expensive as they are to buy ready-made, you’d think they were really hard to make. But homemade chocolate dipped strawberries are deceptively simple to make–and just as delicious!

You need:

1 pound strawberries
12 oz chocolate flavored candy coating
Toppings of choice: mini chocolate chips, sprinkles, chopped pecans, colored sugar, etc. Be creative!

Wash strawberries and allow to dry COMPLETELY! Melt chocolate in microwave according to package directions. Holding on to strawberries by their crowns, dip in chocolate, being sure to thoroughly coat them. Place them on wax paper to dry. While chocolate is still drying, decorate to your taste. Allow to dry completely and serve. Happy Hearts Day!

  1. Wow, those are right pretty!!! I must say, I had some really good strawberries (minus the chocolate) at Phelpses the other night and they took care of the craving, else I might be plotting how to use a few Weight Watchers points for these!
