Get a look at a very good chocolate covered strawberries photograph:
Chocolate-Covered Strawberries [Take 2]

Dessert: I finally got to taste the second batch of chocolate-covered strawberries… and watch the last episode of Alias (season 4!)
These were done originally with white morsels, and more half-and-half, hoping to thin the covering. I had to add some milk chocolate chips to the mix as it was too thin, and in my opinion it was still too thin. Jonathan thought it was just the way he wanted it, Go figure!
I may not be a big fan of chocolate, but the contrast in flavors with the strawberry, was nice… especially the first try (with darker choclates.) These were simply a tid too sweet, which made me stop at around 5…
1 bag (11-12oz) of Chocolate Chips
1 splash of Half&Half
In a double boiler (baño maria) melt the chips with the half&half, stirring until it is a smooth consistency.
Dip the strawberries (fruit of your choice) one by one, and place them on a tray lined with wax paper (or plastic wrap.)
Refridgerate the dipped fruit until chocolate is hardened.
Eat, & Enjoy!
