Sometimes at night I want something sweet. Lately, I have been dipping fresh strawberries into dark chocolate for a treat. They are so good and it is just enough chocolate for me.
I put some Hershey’s Special Dark Chocolate Chips (my favorite) into a small glass bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. When you take them out, they won’t look much different, but mix them around with a spoon for a minute and they will slowly start to melt. Then, put them into the microwave again for 30 seconds. Take them out and mix, mix, mix! It should turn into a smooth melted chocolate. If you are doing a larger batch, try another 30 seconds. By only putting them in the microwave for a short time, you won’t burn the chocolate! Nothing is worse than ruining perfectly good chocolate!!
I wash the strawberries and dry them well. If they are wet, the water will ruin the chocolate. Dip the strawberries and place them on a parchment paper-covered plate. Stick them in the freezer for a few minutes and they will be ready to eat!
Or eat most of the melted chocolate straight out of the bowl before they even make it onto the strawberries like me
