I love chocolate covered strawberries but I refuse to buy them from a store because I think they are way too pricey. This is a simple and easy way to make them at home for much less than the going price at the store. I found the recipe at Allrecipes.
16 ounces milk chocolate chips
2 tablespoons shortening
1 pound fresh strawberries with leaves
Insert toothpicks into the tops of the strawberries.
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.
Turn the strawberries upside down and insert the toothpick into Styrofoam for the chocolate to cool.
