We didn't know what to have for dessert so I made these homemade chocolate dipped strawberries as a quick and easy dessert for Mother's day. To make easy chocolate covered strawberries, all that is needed is fresh, wash and dried strawberries and some of your favorite chocolate. I prefer dark chocolate over milk chocolate and usually use a quality brand such as Lindt chocolate.
How to make chocolate covered strawberries:
Line a plate or cookie sheet with some parchment paper (depending on how many you would like to make)
Melt some chocolate in a fondue pot or double boiler.
Dip clean and dry strawberries in the chocolate and place each dipped strawberry on the parchment paper lined plate or cookie sheet to dry.
*If the weather is warm and I need to speed up the drying process, I usually put the chocolate covered strawberries in the fridge to dry.
Once the chocolate dipped strawberries are dry, remove them from the parchment paper and serve on a nice plate or gift them placed in paper cupcake liners and a box.
