St Valentine is a little bit too far from now, but why not pamper yourself with a nice dessert and a romantic movie. This recipe is extremely easy to be made, just follow the steps:
Wash and dry the strawberries.
After that, fill in a bowl full of chocolate chips, you can choose more milky taste or chips with stronger cocoa taste, it’s up to your preferences.
Prepare the drying place. Lay down a sheet of baking paper over a shallow pan.
Put the bowl with the chocolate chips in the microwave and warm them for a minute and a half, then stir and if needed, microwave again. The chocolate must be smooth and well melted.
Now start to dip the strawberries. Dip in and place on the baking paper. If the chocolate start to harden, put it back in the microwave and turn it on for another 10 seconds, stir and continue dipping.
Leave the strawberries on the pan and let the chocolate harden. If you need them to harden faster you can put them in the fridge for a couple of minutes.
