Valentine Dessert

I thought that it would be fun for the next couple weeks before Valentine's Day to post some yummy, romantic desserts that you can make for your special Valentine. Today I have a very yummy, easy and classic dessert.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries


Ingredients:

16 oz of milk chocolate chips, or your preference of chocolate
2 Tbsp shortening
1 lb fresh strawberries

Directions:

1. Insert toothpicks into the tops of the strawberries.
2. In a double boiler, melt the chocolate and shortening, stirring occasionally until smooth. Holding them by the toothpicks, dip the strawberries into the chocolate mixture.
3.Turn the strawberries upside down and insert the toothpick into styrofoam for the chocolate to cool.
