Chocolate covered strawberries are a nice little romantic treat when you want to celebrate something special. I always make them for our wedding anniversary. They are very simple to make and they go really well with some sparkling wine.
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
1 package strawberries
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 tbsp. heavy cream
splash of vanilla extract
Rinse strawberries and drain on a paper towel. Make sure you dry the strawberries so the chocolate will stick. Heat chocolate, heavy cream and vanilla in a small sauce pan over low, stirring constantly. Once chocolate has melted, dip strawberry in chocolate sauce. Place dipped strawberry on a wax paper covered plate. Chill in refrigerator for about an hour or until chocolate has completely cooled on strawberry.
