Chocolate Dipped Strawberries


MAKES: 16 • READY: in 20 minutes


1 pound fresh strawberries
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1. Wipe each strawberry with paper towel to remove any dust. Do not get them wet!

2. Place semisweet chocolate chips in a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave at 50% power for 2 minutes. Remove from microwave and stir to melt chocolate. (Microwave at 50% power for 30 more seconds if necessary.) Be careful, chocolate can burn.
