#COOKING WITH CLORIS--VALENTINE'S DAY CHOCOLATE WITHOUT THE GUILT

Sometimes a girl just has to have her chocolate. But Indulge the crave, and afterwards the guilt sets in, right? All those calories! There goes the diet…

But hey, tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. You deserve a little chocolate without the guilt. These chocolate dipped strawberries are only seventeen calories each, and they’re super-easy to make.

Ingredients:
Large strawberries
Semi-sweet chocolate chips

Note: You’ll need 1 tablespoon of chips for every five strawberries.

Wash strawberries and allow to dry.

Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir chocolate until smooth as velvet. If all the chips haven’t melted, continue microwaving fifteen seconds at a time and stirring in-between.

Cover a plate with wax paper.

Dip strawberries in chocolate coating half to three-quarters of the berry. Place on a wax paper covered plate.

Place the plate of dipped strawberries in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before serving.

Happy low-calorie Valentine’s Day to all you chocolate lovers out there!
