Chocolate Covered Strawberries from Cooking and Cooking
Yield: Makes 12 chocolate covered strawberries

Wash the strawberries and pat until completely dry, set aside.

Place the chocolate chips and butter in a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1 to 2 minutes, or until smooth; stopping to stir every 25 seconds (or use a double boiler to melt the chocolate).

Note: if chocolate is too thick, microwave it a little more. If the chocolate is too thin, let it cool until you reach the desired thickness.

One by one, dip strawberries into melted chocolate. Place on a baking sheet with waxed paper. Allow chocolate to cool, and then refrigerate the chocolate covered strawberries until the chocolate is set, about 15 minutes. Store covered in refrigerator up to 1 day.
