Chocolate Covered Strawberries
5 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 pint fresh strawberries with leaves
In a microwave safe bowl, or in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, cook chocolate until melted. Stir occasionally until chocolate is smooth. Holding berries by the stem, dip each in chocolate about three-quarters of the way to the stem. Place, stem side down, on wire rack and chill in refrigerator until hardened.
