Chocolate Covered Strawberries

These are so insanely easy I’m not sure why we don’t make them all the time. Somehow chocolate covered strawberries got relegated to the world of special occasions. They really don’t have to be and once you read this you’ll see why you can have them, basically, whenever you want.

Seriously, I made these in 10 minutes with my 3 year old “helping” me. It was as simple as melting the chocolate, dipping the strawberries, refrigerating. Done. And you will be so glad you did this.
