The easy Valentine's Day gift : Chocolate covered strawberries


It's almost Valentine's Day and it's time to shower your loved one with lots of chocolate and strawberries. Surprise your loved one with homemade chocolate-covered strawberries!

Ingredients:
Strawberries
any type of chocolate
(I used 70% coca dark chocolate and white chocolate)

Method:
1. Insert toothpicks into the tops of strawberries.
2. Put the dark and white chocolates into 2 separate heatproof medium bowls. Fill 2 medium saucepans wit a couple inches of water and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Set the bowls of chocolate over the water to melt, stir until smooth
3. once the chocolate are melted and smooth, remove from the heat, holding the strawberry by the toothpicks, dip it into dark chocolate, lift and twist slight, letting any excess chocolate fall back into the bowl. Turn the strawberries upside down and insert the toothpick into styrofoam for the chocolate to cool down for a bit.
4. Dip a fork in the white chocolate and drizzle the white chocolate over the dipped strawberries, repeat with the rest of the strawberries.
5. Set the strawberries aside until the chocolate sets.
