Chocolate Covered Strawberries
| 1 min read
1 cup fresh strawberries, washed and dried
1 cup dark chocolate melting chips
1⁄4 cup nuts, chopped, optional
Melt the chocolate chips. Using a microwave-safe bowl, melt the dark chocolate at 30-second intervals in the microwave, taking breaks to stir until melted and smooth.
Dip each strawberry into the melted dark chocolate, allowing any excess to drip off. If desired, sprinkle chopped nuts over the wet chocolate before it hardens.
Place the chocolate-covered strawberries on a parchment-lined tray.
Allow the chocolate to set by placing the tray in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Optional: if any chocolate is left over, pour over a cluster of nuts for a chocolate bark treat.
