The best berries will get stored in the fridge to be used whole or eaten over the next few days. First request from the kiddos: Chocolate Covered Strawberries!
- Melt chocolate in the microwave on 50% power, 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each interval. (I melted mine in a teacup since I wasn't melting a ton, and it worked great!).
- Choose firm strawberries for dipping -- no mushy spots or bruises! Make sure they're completely dry after washing them.
- Hold the strawberries by the leaves/stem and dip into the melted chocolate. Place on a wax paper-covered cookie sheet, and allow to cool until the chocolate is firm.
