The combination of red, juicy strawberries with chocolate offers a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds. Learning how to make chocolate-covered strawberries for Valentine's Day is an easy process that does not require many supplies or ingredients. You will need fresh strawberries, dark chocolate, parchment paper, some basic cooking equipment and about 30 minutes for preparation. Allow at least one hour after you have finished melding the chocolate and strawberries before serving so that your combination will have sufficient time to harden in your refrigerator.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

1 lb. fresh strawberries
12 oz. dark chocolate (bar, chunks or pieces)

1. Tear off a large piece of parchment or wax paper and place it on your kitchen counter or work space. Wash strawberries and allow them to dry.

2. Add 1 inch of water in the bottom of your sauce pan. Heat water and allow to simmer. Place your metal bowl on top of your sauce pan to create a double boiler.

3. Cut up your chocolate into smaller pieces. You can opt to purchase chocolate chunks or pieces to avoid the need to cut a chocolate bar. Pour chocolate into your metal bowl.

4. Stir continuously. If the bowl moves too much, hold the side with a kitchen towel. Turn off the burner once the chocolate is smooth and melted. Remove the metal bowl and place it on your work space.

5. Hold a strawberry by the green stem and dip into the chocolate. If your strawberry does not have a sufficient stem for a firm hold, place a skewer into the top and push it until the skewer is about half-way into the strawberry.

6. Swirl the strawberry into the chocolate. Aim to cover about 1/3 to 1/2 of the strawberry. Pull the strawberry out of the chocolate and spin slightly. Allow some of the excess chocolate to drip into the bowl. Transfer the strawberry to your parchment or wax paper while holding a spoon under the bottom to catch any chocolate drips.

7. Remove the skewer if desired. You can leave the skewer or toothpick in your strawberry to use as a presentation and eating aid.
Repeat the dipping process with your remaining strawberries. Place chocolate-covered strawberries in the refrigerator for approximately one hour to allow the chocolate to cool and harden.
