Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

These elegant treats are so easy to make at home, you’ll never buy them again. Chocolate-covered strawberries are a classic favorite; substitute an equal amount of another fresh or dried fruit, from sliced banana to dried apricots, if desired. For an extra-fancy treat, sprinkle the freshly dipped strawberries with colored sugar or sprinkles, or drizzle with melted white chocolate.
