The Bride's Request
Chocolate covered strawberries are surprisingly easy to make & always a huge hit at parties. To make this batch, I used about 3 tubs of strawberries and 1 package of dark cocoa candy melts. I threw the candy melts in my little crockpot on low, and washed & dried the strawberries. You want to give the strawberries enough time to get dry so the chocolate will stick. Also, leave the tops on them. The time that I cut the tops off was very unappetizing: they started to rot and most of it went to waste. The longest part of dipping the strawberries was actually waiting for the chocolate to melt, which is not something to rush. The actual dipping went quickly and easily. Set them on wax paper to dry. It's probably better to make them the same day that you're going to eat them: I've never been able to keep them nice when I store them overnight.
