So earlier this week we hosted people over at our house for the Olympics opening ceremony. And I had all the intentions in the world to make white chocolate dipped strawberries. But then came the six pizzas. And the champagne cocktails. And soon, I had completely forgotten about the massive amount of strawberries in the fridge and the white chocolate chips sitting beside them.
Now, I couldn't let the strawberries go to waste. I didn't want them to rot. And I mean, chocolate! A friend of ours was coming over for dinner and he has a huge sweet tooth. So I knew he would help to consume loads of the chocolate covered strawberries.
I don't know why I don't dip more things in strawberries. It's easy to do and delicious to eat. These make an easy and quick dessert. And we ate every single last one of them.
1 large container strawberries
1 8 oz bag of white chocolate chips
Fill a saucepan with about 4" of water. Place a medium bowl over the saucepan. It should fit snugly but not completely fill the saucepan. Put the chips into the bowl. Heat over medium high heat. This is basically mimicking a double boiler. If you have a double boiler pan that also can work.
Stir the chips until they melt.
Continue stirring until it is completely liquid. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. dip the strawberries into the chocolate, coating about 2/3 of the strawberry. Lie the strawberries on the wax paper.
Place in the fridge until the chocolate has hardened, at least an hour. Serve chilled. And eat plenty.
