Everyone loves chocolate-covered fruit, right? Make your own chocolate-covered strawberries simply and quickly. This recipe is so easy but it tastes like a million dollars. I used Nestle’s chocolate dark chocolate without adding anything to it, I just followed the melting directions on the bag and it worked out great. I dipped bananas into the left over chocolate and it was delicious

2. Insert toothpicks into the tops of the strawberries.
