One success and two failures

There is something so lovely about chocolate covered strawberries.
They are so simple yet somehow seem very decadent.

We were going to make a white chocolate drizzle for them but our first attempt to melt the white chocolate chips failed miserably when they shriveled up and burned in the microwave. Then we went the makeshift double-boiler route and all was going well, the chips were melting nicely and it was smooth but not runny enough and we would have had to Jackson Pollock them at the strawberries so we thought maybe adding a teensy bit of milk would make them a bit easier to drizzle. Bad idea. As soon as the milk hit the chocolate it immediately congealed. Fail x2. So we just decided to junk it and eat them as is.
