Homemade Chocolate Covered Strawberries

They're beautiful and impressive yet oh-so affordable! Serve chocolate covered strawberries at your next back yard bbq this summer or a brunch and watch the faces of your guests break out in smiles.

Yesterday my 14 year old daughter announced she was craving chocolate covered strawberries. While I don't understand craving chocolate nor craving anything mixed with, on or covering my fruit (I like my fruit naked... no whipped cream, sugar, chocolate nor anything else) I DO however understand cravings so I said; "Well, I just bought a large container or strawberries and we have chocolate almond bark."

She almost ran to the kitchen!

I snapped a couple photos as she made a dozen chocolate covered strawberries and then used the remaining chocolate in the bowl to cover pretzels.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Chocolate Almond Bark (or chocolate chips)

Wash your berries and dry them completely. Air dry or pat with a paper towel if you are in a hurry like my daughter is! Melt the almond bark in the microwave for a minute or two, stirring every 30-40 seconds as it starts to melt quickly and will melt completely smooth as you stir. Use a toothpick or your fingers or even a skewer to dip each strawberry 3/4 of the way into the chocolate. Place on parchment paper or foil to let it set. Almond bark will set up quickly and smoothly. If you use melted chocolate chips it will take a little longer to set up. When set, you can melt white chocolate and drizzle on top to make them beautiful. My daughter didn't want to wait!

Dry the berries completely

Dip 3/4 of the way into melted chocolate almond bark or chocolate chips

Let set at room temperature to 'set up' and become hard.
Decorate if you wish!
