Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Chocolate covered strawberries are the easiest, yet hardest sweet treats to make. At least for me they were.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Did you know that until yesterday I could not melt chocolate without burning it to save my life? Of course you didn’t! Why would you? There is no way I would have told a soul, I was EXTREMELY and still am a little embarrassed by this fact about myself. No matter how hard I tried or how many times I asked my mom, I just couldn’t do it.

So to save you the embarrassment and the money I am going to let you in on a little secret and the trick to melting chocolate just right… Use the microwave for 15 seconds at a time, stir in between and repeat until you have a smooth, liquidy texture. That’s it! It’s that simple. I have no idea why it has taken me 20+ years to figure this out.

    Chocolate can be very temperamental.. all your tools need to be dry because even a drop of water can seize it up! These look delicious.. nothing goes better with strawberries than chocolate! YUM!

    Mmmm, I haven’t had chocolate covered strawberries in forever, yum! I like the idea of using the microwave for melting. I usually would steam/melt chocolate with a pot of boiling water and a casserole dish, but that casserole dish recently shattered. Tears were shed, that dish was so awesome. I’m thinking there will be lots of chocolate covered fruit in my near future anyway, thanks for the inspiration! 😀

    I found a way to melt chocolate quickly and no burning I use asmall pot of water and I turn it on low to medium heat then I place a glass bowl on top like you would with a double boiler and you can melt the chocolate with no burning. It’s just the way I do it as I don’t like my microwave lol 🙂 love these and I should make them for my kids 🙂

    oh my they look awesome! I personally throw a whole bag in a bowl for 2 min on reg heat and voila, sometimes I’m not so lucky but it’s rare. I really have to try this!

    Now that we are starting to see some nicer strawberries in our local groceries, I am going to tackle trying these.

    That’s so interesting — I consider chocolate covered strawberries an easy thing to make and I often make them for potlucks! I haven’t tried the microwave method before but will give it a try!
