Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

America, North:

Every special occasion (weddings, Christmas, parties, birthdays) when our whole family gets together, we all love my aunt's very famous strawberries dipped in chocolate. We all ask her to make them every chance we get. We all have grown up with loving the juicy, sweet, taste of fresh strawberries and chocolate. These are important to my family because it is the only thing that the whole family likes and also will also always agree on having for a special occasion. We never get sick of them because even though we always ask for them my aunt doesn’t make them often. And even if we try to make them they never turn out as good as hers. But maybe you have the special touch. So you try.
