Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Valentines day is right around the corner! Whether you're with your gals or significant other, this quick foodie D.I.Y. will amp up the celebration anywhere. 

Materials

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

- Strawberries

- Chocolate chips

- Microwave

- Microwave safe bowl

- Cookie sheet/tray 

- Foil

- Spatula 

Step 1:

Wash and dry your strawberries to ensure the rid of pesticides and any other chemicals.

Step 2:

Melt your chocolate. Pour the chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl & proceed to melt the chocolate in 30 second increments (this is so that you don't burn your chocolate!) -- stirring the chocolate with a spatula in between increments. 

All together I melted my chocolate for about 2 minutes.

Step 3:

Picking up each strawberry by its leaves, hand dip in your melted chocolate! We found that tilting the bowl to the side and swirling the strawberry around was the most efficient way to cover the berry well.

Step 4:

After covering all the strawberries, lay them out on a flat cookie tray and leave them in a fridge to harden for 30 minutes.

VOILA!

A sweet little dessert for galentines + valentines to share. 

Come back soon for more creations with us!

XOXO,
