Chocolate Covered Strawberries for Valentines Day

  Pretty in Pink Valentines day strawberries! Choose large Red Firm berries for coating! I used Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, and White Chocolate. Sanding Sugars of Hot Pink, White, and Light Pink plus I used Coconut and Chocolate Sprinkles too! Have fun be as fancy or as tacky as you like after all Valentines Day is everything from Romantic to Cheesy so decorate your berries to suit your mood! Have a Happy Valentines Day with your loved ones!
1 Quart Fresh Strawberries ( washed & dried)
1 Bag Milk Chocolate Chips
1 Bag Semi Sweet Chips                                                                 
1 Bar of Bakers White Chocolate
Sanding Sugar & Sprinkles, or coconut, your choice
I melt my chocolate in my crockpot & keep the pot on warm while working with the chocolate. You will have to stir the chocolate now & then to keep the chocolate smooth. If you do not have enough crockpots place the chocolate in a double boiler and melt it over hot water. One small saucepan placed in a larger saucepan with water in the large pan about 1/2 full of water. I used a long bamboo skewer and inserted it into the top part of the strawberry at the stem. Insert about 1/2 into the berry. Dip tip of berry into the chocolate inserting berry about 3/4 of the way down in the chocolate. Leave some red & all of the green leaves and stem uncoated.  Lift berry out of the chocolate and twirl to remove excess chocolate. With a spoon drizzle some of the dark chocolate or some of the white. Be creative and mix the order up. Dip some in white chocolate & drizzle with milk  chocolate or semi sweet. Now dip berry into the decorations that you have chosen. Lay on wax paper to cool & set. Once chocolate has hardened place in an airtight container & refrigerate ! These are best same or next day & will not keep very long but that is just fine because these will be eaten in no time !
