Chocolate Covered Strawberries

I always thought you had to have special "melting" chocolate to do this wonderful dessert. 
 Nope. You just need a double boiler and some good Ghirardelli chocolate. is one EASY peezy strawberry dessert.
-Bag of chocolate
-Strawberries--Rinse them and FULLY DRY THEM!! 
I don't have an official double boiler, so this is my makeshift one.
Put about 3/4 C. water into the pot.
Bring to a light boil.
Pour entire bag of chocolate chips in bowl.
Stir constantly while water in pot is still boiling.
This process should take place rather fast.
As soon as the chocolate is fully melted, turn the heat off.
(It will stay warm enough for you to cover all your fruit)
Cover your fruit!
Place on parchment paper OR foil.
The best results are this:
Place in fridge for a few min., then let them come to room temperature and consume.
Placing them in the fridge will harden the chocolate shell faster (which isn't a bad thing)
but if left in fridge too long then the strawberries underneath will start leaking juices.

So we like to eat the strawberries really fresh after we have them dipped.
