Chocolate Covered Strawberries

I love to make special desserts for special holidays.  I wanted to have chocolate covered strawberries for Valentine’s Day, but buying them is way too expensive not as healthy as I could make them! 🙂

Here is what you need:

 about 30 strawberries with caps on

2 sections of TJ’s unsweetened baking chocolate

1/2 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips

a rubber scrapper for stirring

a pan with aluminum foil

PAM

Directions: Rinse strawberries and leave out until room temperature

***note, strawberries must be dried completely before you dip in chocolate otherwise you will end with grainy chocolate (yuck!)

Next, heat about a half of your chocolate chips and one section of the baking chocolate.  Heat in microwave in 30 second increments stirring in between

***Chocolate should look shiny and not have a lot of lumps to it- do not burn chocolate!

Lay a pan covered in non-stick spray (spray only a little bit so the chocolate does not stick).  Then, dip each strawberry in chocolate and lay out to dry. 

Leave chocolate covered strawberries out to harden for about one hour.  Then you can refrigerate them or eat at room temperature.  I like mine really cold so I left them in the fridge over night.

With both types of chocolate, I estimate them to be about 2-3 points per strawberry depending on how much chocolate you use!!  Enjoy 🙂
