Recipe of the Week: Chocolate-Covered Strawberries
What can you possibly make with chocolate that’s somewhat healthy? Trail mix? Meh, that’s kind of boring—although it is delicious. Chocolate-covered oranges? Gross. Chocolate-covered strawberries? Heck, yeah!
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
- Wash the strawberries thoroughly.
- Choose one of two ways to melt the chocolate chips: (1) Place the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and zap in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir and zap again, a minute at a time, being careful not to let burn. (2) Place the chocolate chips in a glass bowl set over a cup of boiling water. Stir until completely melted.
- Hold each strawberry by the stem and dip into the chocolate. If you’re burning your fingers, use a spoon to slather on the chocolate instead.
- Share with a friend and sink your teeth into happiness.
