P.S. I didn't add anything to the chocolate... I just melted it slowly stirring constantly. Easy!

Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Hi! I don't usually do two posts in one day, but today is different. Why? In honor of chocolate covered strawberries... that's why. I saw the Valentine sign outside Byer's Butterflake Bakery today which advertised this ingenious combination of foods, and so I got curious as to what I could do with my Costco bag full of frozen strawberries and dark Wilbur chocolate bar. I put 20 rock hard strawberries on a baker's cooling rack with a paper towel underneath, let them drip and thaw, patted them with a paper towel lightly, and then dipped them in melted dark chocolate (made by double boiler). Promptly put into frig. and enjoy after 10 minutes of cooling & hardening time. You end up with great looking and tasting morsels but keep a napkin handy because the center is very soft and juicy.
