    If strawberries are in season, or if you just came from Baguio and went overboard with strawberry-picking, here’s a very simple recipe to help you with your strawberry overstock.

    You will need:
    •    1 kilo strawberries
    •    2 cups semi-sweet chocolate bits (I like the semi-sweet, my hubby likes dark chocolate)

    Directions:
    1.    Wash the strawberries very well and make sure they are completely dried.
    2.    Using a double broiler, melt the semi-sweet chocolate bits in low heat.  Stir continuously until the lumps are gone.
    3.    Dip the strawberries into the melted chocolate and place the chocolate-coated fruits on a buttered cookie sheet.  Refrigerate until the chocolate hardens.
