Chocolate Strawberries

Stephanie Gallagher
These chocolate strawberries look impressive, but they are actually quite simple to make. The key is to keep the chocolate at a low, warm temperature while you're dipping the berries. A chocolate melter (compare prices) can help with that. Or you can melt the chocolate in a double boiler or the microwave, and just work quickly.

Look for large strawberries with long stems. They look better when dipped in chocolate and the long stems make it easier to do the dipping.

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 16-20 strawberries

Ingredients:

  • 2 6 oz. dark chocolate bars (or 12 oz. dark chocolate)
  • 1 tsp. butter
  • 1 quart strawberries
  • 6 oz. white chocolate candy melts or white chocolate chips

Preparation:

  1. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper or parchment paper.

  2. Break up chocolate, and place in a chocolate melter or in the top of a double-boiler with butter. Melt completely. Or place the chocolate pieces and butter in a microwave-safe container and heat on 50% power for 30 seconds. Stir, and repeat until melted.

  3. Meanwhile, wash strawberries and dry well with a paper towel. The strawberries need to be dry in order for the chocolate to adhere to the them.

  4. Holding strawberries by the stem, dip in chocolate, coating strawberries well. Let excess chocolate drip off strawberries. Place chocolate strawberries on prepared baking sheet to cool completely.

  5. Place white chocolate candy melts or chips in a microwave-safe container. Heat on 50% power for 30 seconds. Stir and repeat until melted. With a fork, drizzle white chocolate over chocolate strawberries. There's no need to take chocolate strawberries off the baking sheet. Just let the excess white chocolate drizzle onto the waxed paper.

  6. Let strawberries cool completely. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
