CHOCOLATE COVERED STRAWBERRIES

If you want to impress someone with a delicious dessert, but don't have much time, here is the perfect, easy to make and elegant dessert. I absolutely love these chocolate covered strawberries. I made these beauties last weekend when my mom came from Portugal and had dinner at my place. I will for sure do this again many times. :)
 
What you need:
20 strawberries
1 cup chopped chocolate or good-quality chocolate chips
1 teaspoon of canola oil

- Gently rinse the strawberries in cool water and then spread them out on a clean dish towel for them to dry. Let them dry completely before you start dipping.
  - Prepare a baking tray with waxed paper.
- Place chopped chocolate in a double boiler or bowl over hot water, melt your chocolate with 1 teaspoon of canola oil. Stir together until smooth.
 - Hold de strawberry by the stem, dip it in chocolate, twirling it in a circular motion to cover most of the strawberry, place it on the prepared baking tray and repeat with remaining strawberries and chocolate.
- Once all of the strawberries are dipped, refrigerate them for maximum 30 minutes to set the chocolate.  
  Transfer these beauties onto a serving platter to serve.

 These yummy chocolate covered strawberries taste best when eaten on the same day they are made. In our home this was not a issue at all! LOL
Try serving these delicious " candies" with your favorite champagne.



 
Hope you enjoyed this post. I sure did enjoy eating them. :)
Have a good weekend everyone!
