Just for the Hull of It. (I crack myself up)

I've been wanting to try my hand at chocolate covered strawberries. I have no idea why....I just wanted too. Last night I gave it a try.

Here are my strawberries. (Don't blow up the picture or you'll see how fuzzy it is.) I also purchased some Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chips.

I washed and throughly dried the strawberries and then I put the chocolate chips in a double boiler to melt.

I then poured the melted chocolate into a deep bowl...well, actually I used a glass as I don't have a short deep bowl.

And then I dipped them and placed them carefully on a sheet of wax paper.

Voila! Chocolate-Covered Strawberries. I had several tasters last night who said they were delicious! (I'm one of those rare people who actually doesn't like strawberries. I know...I'm weird.)

Next time I make them, I would put the wax paper on a small tray so I could move the strawberries to the fridge or freezer to expedite the cooling process. I will also try them with dark chocolate.


  1. Zoli and I tried those a few times. They are so delicious but ours certainly didn't look as good as yours!! You know what else is delicious...nutella covered strawberries!!

  2. Man those look good.

  3. When you make them with dark chocolate, I will be right over!

  4. Nice! Yes, I'm with Linda B., make some dark chocolate ones and I'll be running!
