Chili Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

The other day while working out on the elliptical, I caught an episode of "5 Ingredient Fix."  This show, with it's 5:30 time slot, follows the Barefoot Contessa and seems to have replaced "Cooking with the Neely's"-- a welcome change for me because there is only so much steak I can see someone cook on the grill.  
Anyway, this is so unbelievably simple to make and it only uses 5 ingredients!  I used bittersweet chocolate because the strawberries have so much sweetness on their own.  I saw the berries in the market (a little early in the season), and they looked so good I just had to buy them.  They were perfect--- incredibly sweet and juicy.  I make a point of only buying organic strawberries because the fruits are porous and I don't want to add a 6th ingredient (read: unwanted pesticides and chemicals).  The key, though, is to buy the highest quality ingredients since there are so few in this recipe.  The ancho chili powder adds an interesting note.  I'm going to make these again and time I may try dusting these with a little bit of coarse sea salt.  Hmmmm.
These are the perfect little sweets to make for the mother in your life...or for celebrating yourself!  
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
3 tablespoons heavy cream
1 tablespoon butter
1/8 teaspoon ground pure chili powder, such as ancho
10 large strawberries with long stems

[Note:  I halved the recipe and used 8 medium sized strawberries.  I had left over chocolate dip.  I'm sure it will go well with Swedish pancakes which I am making next week.]
In a heat-proof mixing bowl, add the chocolate, cream, and butter. Place over a smaller pot of simmering water. Be sure the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl. Stir until chocolate is melted. Stir in the chili powder and mix until fully incorporated.
Hold each strawberry by the long stem (or the green top) and dip into the chocolate allowing the excess to drizzle back into the pan. Place chocolate covered strawberries on a parchment or waxed paper lined sheet tray. Once chocolate is cool, chill until fully set, about 30 minutes.
