Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries Recipe
They may seem like the ultimate fancy party food, but homemade chocolate-covered strawberries are actually very easy to make. You’ll need fresh berries, melted chocolate and a bit of time to dip them and let them chill. Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries are an elegant decoration for a layer cake, a beautiful addition to a dessert tray or a lovely centerpiece for a special occasion.
pint (2 cups) medium-large strawberries (18 to 20 strawberries)
cup semisweet chocolate chips or white vanilla baking chips
teaspoon shortening or vegetable oil
Gently rinse strawberries and dry on paper towels (berries must be completely dry). Line cookie sheet with waxed paper.
In 1-quart saucepan, melt chocolate chips and shortening over low heat, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
Dip lower half of each strawberry into chocolate mixture; allow excess to drip back into saucepan. Place on waxed paper-lined cookie sheet.
Refrigerate uncovered about 30 minutes or until chocolate is firm, or until ready to serve. Store covered in refrigerator so chocolate does not soften (if made with oil, chocolate will soften more quickly at room temperature).
Ove Glove Oven Mitt Customer Reviews
Really protect your hands. Follow directions and don’t let them get wet. Fingers of glove are a little narrow, may cause a problem for someone with larger hands. But really protect hands from heat better than any other type of pot holder I’ve tried. – Kimberly, July 2, 2020
I had a pair of red gloves that lost their insulation strength. It took burning a couple fingers when taking a pan out to convince me to get a new pair. This is my first Ove pair, and they are proving to be quite sturdy and protective. –
Great for cast iron! We love cooking in cast iron, but of course the pan gets hot, so you need to make sure your hand is protected while cooking. Plus at those really high temps you want to make sure your glove can handle it. So these are perfect for all cooking occasions! –
I love these gloves. For me gloves are better I can handle baking dishes better, mittens are too bumblesome for me and I get burned. I feel secure handling hot dishes cause I know I will not be burned. –
Best oven gloves! They protect while giving more flexibility than a traditional mitt. –
They are very helpful when baking. I do not get burned. My last pair are still very serviceable. However, they have been used so long it’s just time to retire them. On the other hand. These are cheaply made. Many loose strings inside the fingers and uni handed. My old ones had a right and left hand. Much more comfortable. These are also much lighter weight. –
I am happy with this pot holder. Surprised by the quality as most seen on TV stuff is junk. I am prone to burns and think these gloves will offer “superior protection”! They are a tad big on me but that is not a hindrance. But, they are just right on my adult son. –
These gloves are great. They have replaced all my pot holders. I’ve been using them for almost a year and so far I haven’t felt any heat through them. They are also wonderful for getting hot items out of the microwave. I highly recommend that everyone have a pair in their kitchen. –
I have a mitt that I have had about 20 years and my son ask what brand it was so I thought that they would make a good Easter gift to go with a griddle. So they are as described. Wonderful! Thick, flexible and protect from heat. –
My ove glove has been down many paths. Between Grill and Stove and old age it has seen better days. I have looked everywhere to find the ove gloves every time I was in all the stores and no one had it. Low and behold I found it online not jut one but two of them. They are the best gloves I have found. –
I have used cooking gloves for years and love them so I got them for my daughter for a Christmas gift this year. They are just what they say, you can put them on and reach in the oven and pull out the item without any problem. The fact that the fingers are separate makes the grip easier and safer so less chance of dropping the food. –
These are the original OVE gloves, they are the best pot holders available. I use them to check baked potatoes on the grill to make sure they are done. Then just remove the baked potatoes and corn right off the grill. These will protect your hands removing just about anything from an oven or grill. Well worth the price. –
