Homemade Chocolate Covered Strawberries Philadelphia, PA—It isn't hard to tell when spring has officially arrived.  I agree that the signs aren't always clear when you look at the weather, but they are clear when you look at the produce section of your grocery store. For example, strawberries are always abundant in the spring. Many grocery stores offer them at very affordable prices during this season.

Many of us get excited about the abundant red berries but are unhappy about eating only strawberries all week. You will find many irresistible buy-one-get-one-free offers. With such offers, you might have more than enough berries to consume. If you don't know what to do with all these berries, you can use them to make chocolate-covered strawberries. Sounds exciting? I bet.

Recently, I saw an ad for chocolate-covered strawberries from a local chocolate factory. But when I saw the price offered for them at a reputable store, I was shocked. I then engaged in a price comparison. This made me discover, to my greatest amazement, that the average cost of chocolate-covered strawberries is expensive. I then decided to find out how to save money and still get what I wanted.

I don't know why, but the expense of the treat made it much more appealing. Of course, this doesn't imply that I want to enter a chocolate-covered strawberry-buying frenzy. It simply means I want to find out if there is a way I could make them myself. If I succeed, I could then put the produce sales to good use.

My previous thought was that I would need expensive cocoa blocks for melting and dipping. But thankfully, I discovered that the best way to melt chocolate is via old-fashioned chips, which can be bought right from your local grocery store. Of course, this was really great news for me as I hate going to and fro looking for what I want, even though I have no problem going for chocolate-covered strawberries that are not too expensive.

Another piece of news I came across is that I can use my microwave for this purpose. You see, in theory, making chocolate-covered strawberries is easy. You should follow the necessary instructions carefully, and you will not scorch the chocolate.

For starters, fade the chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Remember to use the defrost setting. Also, remember that dipping your chocolate-covered strawberries on high will scorch them. What to do? Wait until the dip is relatively smooth. This can take two to three minutes.

Do you know the specific technique people use to dip chocolate-covered strawberries? Simply dip the berries into the mixture, then shake the excess away as you withdraw it. Lastly, you can give the chocolate-covered strawberries a few whirls in a clockwise direction, then set it on wax paper. After this, you will start enjoying the labor of your hard work!
