How to Make Chocolate Covered Strawberries

It’s super easy to make this sweet festive treat for holidays or for any special occasion:

  1. Remove the strawberries from the fridge at least 15-30 minutes before using. Wash the strawberries and gently pat them dry completely using paper towels. If the strawberries are wet, the chocolate won’t stick.
  2. Melt the chocolate using your favorite method: on a double boiler or in the microwave. Stir constantly until the chocolate is completely melted, smooth and creamy.
  3. Dip each strawberry in melted chocolate and place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. 
  4. Decorate with desired toppings and drizzle with melted chocolate. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or until ready to serve.

Tips 

  1. Make sure to pat dry the strawberries after washing, or the chocolate won’t stick properly.
  2. Use your favorite type of chocolate bar, such as dark, semisweet, sugar-free, or white chocolate, but make sure to choose a high-quality one. 
  3. Use room temperature strawberries because cold strawberries tend to sweat and prevent the chocolate from sticking.
  4. I melt the chocolate on a double boiler, but you can melt it in the microwave, stirring from time to time. 
  5. Use a little coconut oil to add a glossy look.

Topping for Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

  • Chopped toasted nuts such as hazelnuts, peanuts, pecans, or pistachios. 
  • Coconut Flakes
  • Sprinkles
  • Crushed cookies
  • Melted chocolate to drizzle on top

How Long Do Chocolate Covered Strawberries Last

It’s best to keep chocolate-covered strawberries refrigerated for 1-2 days.

Freezing is not recommended for this recipe because thawing the strawberries releases moisture, which may ruin the chocolate topping.
