Chocolate Filled Strawberries


Like I said, those 12 pounds of cheap strawberries I bought this last week would lead to a lot of strawberry recipe posts!  

This one is super easy to do.  Simply cut off the top of the strawberry and cut a small hole out of the middle.

Melt some chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until done.  

Put the chocolate into a Ziploc baggie, cut the tip of the bag off, and squeeze some chocolate into each strawberry center.

Place in the fridge to set.

Now, I must admit, you cannot eat these straight out of the fridge.  They need to be room temp or meltier to eat (well, you CAN eat the straight out of the fridge, but I personally did not like the big chuck of hard chocolate in the middle).

The solution?  Sit outside in the sun and let your chocolate melt a little bit (not all the way).  NOW they can be eaten in bites!  And they are oh-so-delicious!


While I like the look and ease of these, I truly think I'll stick to strawberries dipped in chocolate in the future (except maybe parties and such).  Though, eating them outside once melty really was just fine in my opinion ;)
