Chocolate and Strawberries

Sometimes the best things are the simplest things. 
Chocolate and Strawberries ~ nothing more, nothing less.

Here's how:
     Melt Chocolate.
          Dip Strawberries.
               Chill.
                    Serve with champagne and candlelight. 


If you need a little more info, here you go:

1 cup chopped good quality chocolate
1 tablespoon shortening
strawberries, washed and dried

Combine chocolate and shortening in a 1 cup glass measure.  Microwave on High 1 minute.  Stir. Microwave 30 seconds and stir until smooth.  If needed, microwave 15 seconds and stir again.  Be careful not to overcook or chocolate will become hard.

Dip strawberries in melted chocolate and arrange on parchment covered tray or baking sheet. Refrigerated until read to serve.




To create a swirl design, melt a small amount of white chocolate.  Pour some chocolate into a small custard cup. 



  Add about 3 small dollops of melted white chocolate, run a skewer or the tip of a knife through the chocolate.  Dip strawberries into chocolate and twist before pulling out.
