Something fun to show people you care

Who doesn’t like chocolate covered strawberries?  But how many times do you really get to enjoy this simple pleasure?   My wife works in an office.  I started making these delectible little treats as a surprise for her.  Slipping them in her car to find on her way to work.  One day she happened to give one to her office mate.  Word spread and pretty soon every one of the 40+ women in her office were wanting to marry me.  I now make them regularly for the whole crew.  The cost………right around ten bucks.  The accolades……….priceless.  Will take a half hour out of your day.  The results are immeasurable.  Here’s the recipe:

  • 8 ounce bag milk chocolate morsels
  • 8 ounce bag white chocolate morsels
  • two dozen nice sized strawberries w/stems if your grocer has them

On LOW heat, melt both bags of chocolate.  Remember, LOW HEAT!  Takes about 20 minutes stirring 3 or four times until smooth.  Take “cold” strawberries and dip into the chocolate covering   3/4   of the berry.  Let excess chocolate drip off and place gently on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.  Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.  I promise you, male or female, you will be a rock star to your significant other, office mates yada yada………This is like the easiest thing you could ever make.  Oh, BTW for extra sweetness and a “designer” look, I’ll take some colored sugar sprinkles and dash across before the chocolate hardens.  Mmmm…………
