Super-Quick Chocolate-Covered Strawberries with Microwave Ganache

Extra chocolate is like extra moneythere's really no such thing. However, if you're like us and           want to extend your Valentine's celebration through the end of Feb., you've got to locate a chocolate bar this week and make some of these berries!

There's really no need to order or buy those ready-made ones; putting these together yourself is inexpensive and truly not that difficult, and using different toppings makes them look even more amazing on the plate.

(You may even want to plan ahead to enjoy them on your upcoming Monday night date. You know, the one with Ben?)

Super-Quick Chocolate-Covered Strawberries with Microwave Ganache

1 quart large strawberries
1 bar sea salt dark chocolate
3 tablespoons heavy cream
chopped almonds, peanuts, or pistachios; toasted coconut

Wash and thoroughly dry the strawberries. Next, break up the chocolate bar into pieces and place it in a microwave-safe bowl and cover it with the cream. Microwave this for 30 seconds and then stir it; repeat. Spoon melted chocolate onto berries but leave the first quarter of the part by the stem plain. Roll or sprinkle berries in your choice of chopped nuts or coconut. Place them on a parchment-lined plate and let them set, which takes about 20 minutes.
