Tasty Thursday: Chocolate Covered Strawberries

How many have you get a sweet tooth? Did you know one piece of cake can average a full meals worth of calories… EEK

Instead of reaching for a candy bar to satisfy that sweet tooth, instead grab some strawberries and some dark chocolate. Not only is this little treat tasty, it will also help you watch the waistline.

If you want you can add about a tsp of olive oil, I just do dark chocolate and strawberries. If you want more just do a bigger batch.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries:
8 oz. Dark Chocolate
1/2 lb. strawberries
1 tsp olive oil (optional, by leaving this out, you also leave out some calories)
Prepare your strawberries, wash them, cut the tops off then sit them aside. I like to take a microwave safe dish add the chips to is, and melt the chocolate, I do this in 30 second intervals so I don’t over melt the chocolate, and have burnt chocolate. If you want to add olive oil now is the time do to so.
After your chocolate is melted, take a toothpick, and dip the strawberry, then set aside again to set and for the chocolate to firm up. I like to put these in the fridge so they get done faster.
Not only is this a yummy treat, it is also quick and easy to make!
