Chocolate Covered Strawberries
List of Ingredients
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
3 tablespoons heavy cream
1 tablespoon butter
10 large strawberries with long stems
Line a baking sheet with foil or waxed paper.
In the top of a double boiler set over hot water melt
the chocolate, stirring. Add the 3 tablespoons of
cream and the butter and stir until smooth. Holding
each strawberry by the stem, dip into the chocolate
mixture allowing the excess chocolate to drip back
into the pan. If necessary, add additional cream to
