Pass the Cocoa

Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

Yields: about 20 strawberries


4 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, roughly chopped

4 oz. white chocolate, roughly chopped

1 lb. fresh strawberries

2 tablespoons finely chopped nuts (optional)


  1. Melt the white and dark chocolates over a double boiler, or with a hair dryer. Simple turn the blow dryer on low/medium power and hold about 10 inches from the chocolate, stirring occasionally.
  2. Dip half the strawberries in dark chocolate, half in white. Place on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper or plastic wrap. Sprinkle the nuts of some of the strawberries, if desired.
  3. Drizzle the white chocolate on the dark chocolate-dipped strawberries, and vice versa.
  4. Refrigerate the strawberries for about 15 minutes, to set the chocolate.
  5. Enjoy!
