SUPER EASY Chocolate Covered Strawberries

These are so easy to make( I cannot stress that enough) and they look like a million bucks! I used to make chocolate covered strawberries the old fashion way, by melting the chocolate, adding a little oil to it to make sure it was the right consistency, then dipping the strawberries and waiting for them to set for what seemed like FOREVER! Not anymore though! Thanks to my friend Vanessa, it's as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Vanessa's lifesaving tip? Dolci Frutta's microwaveable dipping chocolate! Whoever invented the stuff is a god! You melt the chocolate in it's own container in about a minute or two, then dip your previously cleaned and dried strawberries, and then set them on wax/parchment paper. By the time you go to set down the next strawberry, the one you dipped before it, is already hard! It's like "Magic Shell" for fruits, cookies, pretzels, or what ever your little heart desires to dip in there!
You can find Dolic Frutta in the produce department of most supermarkets, usually in the strawberry section. Just remember the name DOLCI FRUTTA and don't be fooled by other brands. . . they don't harden immediately and that is one of its main allures! Not to mention, that it tastes great, major bonus points there too!

So go dip some strawberries for your family and friends, or dip them just for you!
