Chocolate Covered Strawberries

I love strawberries!  I love to eat them just as they are, but sometimes  I can’t resist dipping them in chocolate, covering them in nuts, and devouring them with a little champagne.  So that’s what’s going to happen with some amazing strawberries I got at the market.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries
– 1 lb
6 oz dark chocolate, chopped
3 oz white chocolate, chopped
1 lb strawberries, washed and dried completely
Roasted salted nuts, crushed

Put the dark chocolate and white chocolates into 2 separate heatproof medium bowls. Fill a medium saucepan with a couple inches of water and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Turn off the heat; set the bowls of chocolate over the water to melt. Stir until smooth.

Once the chocolates are melted and smooth, remove from the heat. Line a sheet pan with parchment. Holding the strawberry by the stem, dip them into the dark chocolate, lift and twist slightly, let any excess chocolate fall back into the bowl. Set the dipped strawberries on the parchment paper. Repeat with the rest of the strawberries. Dip a fork in the white chocolate and drizzle the white chocolate over the dipped strawberries, or fill a pastry bag and decorate strawberries. Or garnish with nuts.

Set the strawberries aside until the chocolate sets, about 30 minutes. Refrigerate until ready to eat.
