Chocolate covered Strawberries

Do you like Strawberries? Do you love chocolate? The combination of the two is irresistible! And even more appealing is the fact that this is EASY to do! First you want to clean your strawberries and pat dry. Take a package of semi sweet chocolate chips and melt them in the Microwave. Be careful not to overcook them. Only do about 30 seconds at a time until the chocolate is completely melted. Set out a piece of wax paper. Take the strawberries by the stem and dip them into the chocolate. Let the chocolate drip off and them set them on the wax paper. Let them cool! If you want to get a little fancier melt white chocolate chips and take a knife and drizzle it back and forth on the strawberry. See? Easy to make Gourmet strawberries!

Got some chocolate left over? If you have Pretzels chocolate goes great over pretzels!

So mouth-watering. Too bad I can't buy some strawberries in our supermarkets. I wonder what tropical fruit I can substitute for strawberries in your recipes.
