How to Make Homemade Chocolate Covered Strawberries
- Melt the candy melts in the microwave at 30 seconds intervals for a total of 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, stirring between intervals. Once they look almost completely melted, they are done. Stir and stir until smooth. (If they seem too thick to dip easily, add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of shortening and stir until it smooths out.)
