A Belated Valentine Treat

Because Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday (really, it is!), I'm extending the celebration a bit. Beren brought me a quart of huge luscious strawberries for V-Day, with the request to dip them in chocolate and enjoy a romantic occasion. No problem! *wink* I'll be using squares of Godiva chocolate purchased at an after-the-holiday sale, makes them even more delicious!

Kahlua Chocolate Strawberries

6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup Kahlua
2 pints fresh strawberries

In top of double boiler, melt chocolate over simmering water. Add milk.

Remove from heat. Add Kahlua; whisk until smooth. Cool until thickened (about 1 hour).

Makes about 1 cup sauce. Use only firm dry strawberries.

Hand dip. Can be refrigerated up to 4 hours; excellent served chilled. Or, have guests dip their own!
