Sweet And Cheap Treat!

Well I LOVE baking and I love dessert. But lately I haven't had a whole lot of spare time to make a lot of my favorite treats. So I have started looking for quick and easy alternatives. Recently I started making a DELICIOUS treat that literally takes less than 15 minutes to make. And the total cost is about $6.00. Not to mention, it is one of my all-time favorite sweet snacks, chocolate-covered strawberries!!

I grab a carton of strawberries from Publix, which are nice and cheap this time of the year. Then I get "Baker's Dipping Chocolate," which is less than 3 bucks. I prefer the real milk chocolate flavor, but for those of you who like dark chocolate, they have that too! I have tried several different brands but this one is my favorite.. .and it is very inexpensive!

Go home, rinse of the strawberries, and throw the dipping chocolate in the microwave. Make sure you stop the chocolate and stir it a few times while it melts in the microwave. Then start dipping. Put them in the fridge and they are ready to go. So easy and so delicious! They are always a hit when we have people over for dinner. And I have convinced myself that they are probably a whole lot healthier than chocolate cake. Enjoy!
