Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

Ingredients

  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 12 long-stemmed strawberries

Directions

Melt the chocolate and cream together in a bowl set over simmering water until just melted. Stir and remove from the heat. Dip each strawberry in the chocolate and set aside on waxed or parchment paper to dry.

Notes: So I am from the school of thought that more is better than not enough. Not in this case. As I added the ingredients in the bowl I thought, “Well, that’s not a lot of chocolate. Let’s double it.” Needless to say, I had a lot of chocolate left over. It was not that big a problem because I just put it in the fridge and had a nice little chocolate candy ice creamish dessert the next night. Also make sure you cook until fully melted. I got nervous that some of the chocolate was burning, when really it was just melting at different rates since I doubled the recipe in the middle of the cooking process. consequently, my strawberries and bits of mini chocolate chips on them. It was still delicious!
