Have you gotten something special for your special someone! If not, there’s still time! Here’s a delicious treat that is super easy to make!
First you’ll need to run to the store for the following:
1 package of fresh strawberries
1 bag Ghirardelli milk chocolate chips
white chocolate and/or semi-sweet chocolate chips for decorating
Not too long of a list, right? So here’s what you do. . .
Put your milk chocolate chips in a small crockpot on low for about 10-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. The chocolate will melt quickly, be careful not to burn the chocolate!
In the meantime, gently rinse the strawberries under cold water. Gently shake off excess water and place on paper towel-lined cookie sheet to continue drying. Dry, cold strawberries will work best for dipping!
When your chocolate is ready, use a skewer to dip and roll the strawberry in the chocolate.
Let excess chocolate drip off.
Then place dipped strawberries on wax paper to cool.
If you choose to decorate your chocolate-dipped strawberries, melt your semi-sweet and/or white chips in a glass bowl in the microwave on 70% power stirring after, 30 seconds. Continue heating in 30 second intervals until melted.
Transfer melted chocolate to a plastic sandwich bag and snip off the tip.
Drizzle chocolate over strawberries using back and forth motion.
Allow strawberries to cool completely to harden. You may place them in the refrigerator to speed up the process.
An easy, delicious sweet treat for
you your special someone!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
