Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Looking for ideas for Valentines gifts on a budget. I did this last year and they were a hit. Cheap too, a container of strawberries from Costco and two bags of chocolate chips.
Here are the Steps:

Wash and dry strawberries. (Drying them completely is important or the chocolate won't stick)

Melt chocolate, I used milk chocolate and white chocolate. (I do this in the microwave in 15 second increments)


When the chocolate is cool, dip the strawberries in the chocolate and place on a lined cookie sheet (parchment paper or plastic wrap will do)

It was delicious!

Finally I drizzled white chocolate over the milk dipped and milk chocolate over the white dipped. I did this by putting the left over chocolate in plastic baggies and cutting off the corner to make a small hole.

I wrapped them in groups of two or three (they were huge strawberries) on a red and white polka dot plate and wrapped it up with cellophane and tied with a cute red ribbon.
