I've made chocolate covered strawberries in the past but never used enough melted chocolate so they weren't very pretty. I find that for a couple handfuls of strawberries you should melt at least 8 ounces of high quality chocolate. While Ghirardelli isn't my favorite, I happened to have a big chunk of semisweet chocolate from Trader Joe's (less than $2 for 8 ounces). Melt the chocolate over simmering water (I use a double boiler but a metal or glass bowl would work fine). Then I dip the strawberries in the chocolate, put them on a cookie sheet with a silpat, and cool in the fridge for about a half hour (or less).
Voila. A very "healthy" dessert.
