Hubby bought a huge pack of strawberries at Costco the other day and I thought, "What better way to eat these than dipped in CHOCOLATE!" It was a good excuse to experiment with making chocolate-covered strawberries, which I've never done before, so I pulled out my Test Kitchen cookbook (great cookbook, by the way).
To my delight, the recipe was easy: melt 8 ounces of chopped bittersweet chocolate in the microwave for a few minutes (whisking often), dip and refrigerate for half an hour. Repeat if you want white chocolate, only drizzle the chocolate with a spoon instead of dipping.
They tasted as good as they look. Yum!
