Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Happy belated Valentine's Day! My boyfriend and I, considering it is our sixth Valentine's Day together, kept it pretty casual. We went out for pizza (amazing, bbq tofu pizza) and then came home and watched Dexter. Super romantic. But I did want to make us a nice Valentine's Day treat. Considering it's strawberry season in Florida I thought chocolate strawberries would be perfect. And they couldn't be easier to make. Seriously. Two ingredients. That's it.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries:

  • 1/2 c semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 pound strawberries, rinsed and patted dry
Slowly melt the chocolate in the microwave. I melted at 30-45 second increments at 20% power. Once chocolate is melted, use a spoon to smother the strawberries in chocolate. Place strawberries on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Chill in the refrigerator for about an hour. Enjoy with a special someone. Or keep them all to your self.

*Be sure to melt the chocolate slowly, otherwise it will burn. You could also melt the chocolate with a double boiler.
