Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Snack Mix

I love chocolate-covered strawberries, but that's a treat you want to make only on special occasions. With a little experimenting, I've captured the same incredible flavor in a snack I can take anywhere. Everyone is always amazed when I pull this out at a picnic or tailgate, or on a car trip. —TerryAnn Moore, Vineland, New Jersey
