These are so easy to make you can fool your loved ones into thinking you spent hours in the kitchen.

Every day isn’t Valentine’s Day but you can love on your family any time of the year with this sweet treat. If this isn’t enough chocolate for you take a look at at my Almost Like Candy Bars, Valentine Marshmallow Pops, Oreo Cheesecake Cookies and Oreo Volcano Brownie.

How did you celebrate Valentine’s Day this year?

Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
Author: 
Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8
 
Ingredients
  • 2 bags of candy melts (I used dark chocolate and white)
  • 2 pounds fresh strawberries
  • few drops of cooking oil
Instructions
  1. Wash strawberries, cut off stems and dry with a paper towel.
  2. Melt half the bag of candy melts in a glass bowl or measuring cup (according to directions on package).
  3. If necessary, stir a few drops of oil into the chocolate to make a bit thinner.
  4. Using a toothpick (or even your fingers) dip strawberry into chocolate and lay top down on wax covered cookie sheet.
  5. Once first layer is set melt second color like the first and use a fork to drag through chocolate and onto strawberries.
  6. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Notes
Do not overcook chocolate. I melted in microwave for 1 minute then stirred and continued at 30 second intervals alternating with stirring. Adding a few drops of oii will help the dipping process. If preferred leave the stems on and dip from the bottom up.
