Easy Dark chocolate covered strawberries are the easiest sweet treats you can whip up in a matter of minutes. A wonderful healthy treat for the whole family to enjoy! And, your family will love the surprise for Valentines Day! Delicious fresh fruit, dark chocolate, and lots of antioxidants, what could be better?
First, you will need to rinse strawberries under cold water, then gently pat dry on paper towels.
Next, you can melt dark chocolate either on stove top using a double boiler, or in a microwave. Be careful, when melting chocolate, chocolate hates water. If it comes in contact, it will be unworkable.
Then, take each strawberry, using the stem to handle them easier, and dip 3/4 of the strawberry into the chocolate carefully twirling it to cover the strawberry, and place onto a serving platter lined with wax paper.
Dark Chocolate Covered Strawberries are super easy and rewarding! No need to refrigerate them, and no need for plates or spoons when serving.
It’s fun to make this dessert anytime! Enjoy!
