Chocolate Covered Strawberries (for $0.25 each!)
Why pay $12.00 for 4 chocolate covered strawberries, when you can make them in 5 minutes for $0.25 each! If you have a microwave and refrigerator, you can do this.
All you need:
Strawberries ($2.00 for ~20 in a 16 oz container)
Chocolate Chips ($3.00 a bag)
In a bowl pour about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Microwave them for ONLY 15 seconds at a time and stir after each 15 seconds. Continue to do this until they have all melted. (You can easily burn the chocolate in the microwave, that is why you only want to do 15 seconds at a time.)
Dip the strawberries in the melted chocolate and place on a tray or plate lined with wax paper. Cool them in the fridge for about 30 minutes and you have awesome chocolate covered strawberries!
If you run out of chocolate, just melt more. If you have too much chocolate, try dipping other things like pretzels, cookies, etc!
