My Mom and Dad just celebrated their 53rd anniversary this
week! My two favorite people and they still have it ;o)
Whew I just realized that's a lotta meals cooked for your
man through the years! I'm glad she taught me some of her
faves. I always thought it was cool they have their
anniversary just before Valentine's Day.

What does Cupid have on the agenda for you this time around?
Typically there are 2 things you'll see plenty of around
now......flowers and chocolate covered strawberries right?
I share with you today a romantic recipe for some CHOCOLATE
DIPPED STRAWBERRIES that are so easy to do and you no longer
need to go broke ordering them. You can also make them extra
special with sprinkles, nuts, coconut or other favorite
toppings. This particular recipe is for a pint of strawberries
but this is also great for large strawberries with the stems
still on them....you'll just need to make more of them.
Andy BTW don't wait for a special holiday to make these I
would sure love to get these anytime!

I keep them in a plastic sealed container and chilled until
closer to serving time and arrange on a pretty platter.

Enjoy!

RECIPE: CHOCOLATE DIPPED STRAWBERRIES

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

INGREDIENTS:
1 pint of strawberries
1 package (6 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS:
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.

Yield: 1 pint

SIMPLE STRAWBERRY TIPS:

Strawberries are best used within 2-3 days. Cover and
store them unwashed in the refrigerator. Sort and remove
any bruised or damaged berries as soon as possible and
use in sauces, purees or jams. Place the berries in cool,
well ventilated containers. The moisture content of Fresh
Strawberries is high, so store uncovered or loosely
covered. Hull strawberries and rinse gently JUST before
serving. Careful storing and handling will maintain their
maximum flavor, color and texture.
