Chocolate Covered Strawberries

















What an elegant treat to make for such a low cost. And how easy can it get? I love serving a dish of chocolate covered strawberries to my friends when they come to visit. White chocolate is my favorite!

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
5 ounces white chocolate, chopped
15-20 large strawberries with stems

Put the dark and white chocolates into 2 separate medium bowls that are heatproof. Fill 2 medium saucepans with about 2 inches of water and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Turn off the heat; set the bowls of chocolate over the water to melt.

Stir the chocolates until smooth and then remove bowls rom the heat. Line a cookie sheet pan with parchment or waxed paper. Holding the strawberry by the stem, dip the fruit into the chocolate, lift and twist slightly, letting any excess chocolate fall back into the bowl. Set strawberries on the parchment paper.

Repeat with the rest of the strawberries until all are covered in your choice of chocolate. Then Dip a fork in the chocolate and drizzle the white over the dark and the dark over the white. Set the strawberries aside until the chocolate sets.
