EASY Dark Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Dark chocolate covered strawberries are the easiest sweet treats you can whip up in a matter of minutes.  A wonderful healthy treat for the whole family to enjoy!  And, your family will love the surprise for Valentines Day!  Delicious fresh fruit, dark chocolate, and lots of antioxidants, what could be better?

You can melt dark chocolate either on stove top or in a microwave. Rinse strawberries under cold water, then gently pat dry on paper towels.  Be careful, chocolate hates water.  If it comes in contact, it will be unworkable. Take each one, using the stem, and dip 3/4 of the strawberry into the chocolate and place onto a serving platter lined with wax paper.

No need to refrigerate them, and no need for plates or spoons when serving.
It's fun and easy to make this dessert anytime!  Enjoy!
