Dark-Chocolate Covered Strawberries

We are heading out tonight to a silent auction and bake sale in honor of some friends. One of my friends is baking a chocolate bunt cake for the bake sale. I told her I would contribute some Chocolate covered strawberries to place in the middle. I have to say they are delicious. This was quick and easy to make. Give it a try!

6 ounces Dark chocolate
3 tablespoons Half and half cream
1/2 tablespoon Unsalted butter
20 Large strawberries or 30 medium strawberries.


In a one-quart glass bowl combine chocolate and cream. Heat in microwave oven on high 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Add butter and stir until melted.
Dip each strawberry into the chocolate mixture allowing the excess chocolate to drip back into the bowl. If necessary, add additional cream to the chocolate to achieve desired coating consistency. Transfer the coated strawberry to a baking sheet lined with foil or waxed paper and repeat process.

Allow the chocolate to cool and then chill the strawberries until chocolate is set, about 20 to 30 minutes.
