May is National Strawberry Month. Sweet! Pick up the delicious red berries at your local grocery store or better yet, at a farmerâ€™s market, then step into the kitchen to whip up yummy strawberry treats, like chocolate-covered strawberries!
6 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
3 ounces white chocolate, chopped
1 pound strawberries with stems (about 20), washed and dried very well
Put the semi-sweet and white chocolates each into a microwave safe bowl and melt them at half power for 1 minute, stir and then heat for another minute or until melted.
Once the chocolates have melted and are smooth, line a sheet pan with parchment or waxed paper. Holding the strawberry by the stem, dip the fruit into the dark chocolate, lift and twist slightly, letting any excess chocolate fall back into the bowl. Set the strawberries on the parchment paper. Repeat with the rest of the strawberries. Dip a fork in the white chocolate and drizzle the white chocolate over the dipped strawberries.
Set the strawberries aside until the chocolate sets, about 30 minutes.
