ATC's Recipe of the Day® #2


This one is for chocoholics and serves also for Valentine ;)

--> Chocolate Dipped Strawberries <--

You will need to purchase a pack of fresh strawberries and a pack of semi-sweet chocolate chips (Hershey's are my favourite).

>>Line baking sheet with waxed paper. Rinse strawberries and pat dry with paper towels; set aside. Put chocolate chips in microwave-safe bowl and microwave at 50 percent (medium power) 2 1/2 to 4 minutes until chips look soft and shiny. Stir well. Chocolate should be completely smooth. If chips are not completely melted, microwave a few seconds longer. Holding each strawberry by the stem end, swirl into chocolate to cover 2/3 of the berry leaving the tops exposed; lay on cookie sheet. When all strawberries are coated, refrigerate until chocolate is set.

**Tips & Tricks**
If you like to decorate the food the way i do before presenting, for people eat with their eyes before their mouth, then:
* After making sure that the chocolate is totally stiff you can serve the strawberries by placing them in circular alignments (one in middle surrounded by four surrounded by 8 etc.). When you place the last one of the circles, align some WASHED & CLEANED white rose petals around the last outside circle (on the borders of the round plate) and VOILA ;)

Bon Appetite ;)
