Chocolate covered strawberries are evocative of passion. The naturally heart-shaped fruit, when immersed into a warm liquid sea of chocolate, delivers a succulent burst of perfection into your mouth. Lovely, superb, exquisite, these are just a few words that spring to mind when pondering the shear excellence these two flavors create when brought together. Are they delicious? Undoubtedly so, but a lot of effort is put into creating very few treats. Problem solved. Try out this recipe at your next party. It packs the same amazing flavors into a mouthful of pleasure, and yet it is substantial enough to serve a crowd.

4 tablespoons butter/margarine, melted
