Summer is here...finally!

This is Trina...finally joining in on the blogging fun!  Not only am I a busy mom, but I also teach kindergarten.  If there are other teacher's out there reading this, you know that the end of the year is one of the craziest times of the year.  Now that I am on summer vacation, I have more time to blog! My daughters and I decided to celebrate by making chocolate covered strawberries.  First, let me tell you, I am no Martha Stewart.  In other words, if I can do it then you definitely can too!  I have tried melting chocolate several different ways, but the best way (in my opinion) is by using the Wilton Chocolate Pro.
It is so easy to use and the chocolate melts quickly and evenly,  My favorite chocolate to use is Ghirardelli.  I used milk chocolate this time since my girls prefer it, but dark chocolate is my favorite.
*I am not sure why this picture will not turn the correct way!  

Once the chocolate has melted (about 10 minutes), you can simply dip the strawberries into the Wilton Chocolate Pro.  I hold onto the stem to do this, but you could insert a toothpick or a skewer into the strawberry if the stems are not strong enough.  This process is so simple that my 10 year old did most of the dipping.  The strawberries may not have come out as neat as I would have liked, but sometimes you just need to step back and let the kids have fun.  (This is something that I am still working on!)

Sometimes we add sprinkles to the chocolate before it hardens, but we did not have any this time.  Once we have dipped all of the strawberries, I put the pan in the refrigerator for about an hour.  These are such an easy and healthy summer treat!

Enjoy!  :)
