No, I did not cover all 8 pounds in chocolate... hehe
I bought the berries because I needed to replenish my freezer jam stash.
After making 2 batches of jam and slicing a large bowl for snacking, I decided to cover the really big ones with chocolate. Mmmm
Here's what I do:
Take 3 cups of semi sweet chips, 1/2 cup white chocolate chips, and 1-2 TBSP of shortening. Microwave on high for approximately 2 minutes and stir until completly melted. Wash the strawberries and pat dry. Dip in chocolate and set onto a foil lined baking sheet. Drizzle some with melted white chocolate if desired. Refrigerate until firm.
