Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Servings: 30 strawberries
Calories: 80kcal


  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh strawberries about 30 medium
  • 10 ounces baking chocolate dark or milk
  • 5 ounces white chocolate chips or wafers


  • Rinse strawberries and dry them completely. If there is water left on the strawberry, the chocolate won't stick!
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment or freezer paper.
  • There are 2 ways to melt your chocolate. The first is in the microwave. Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl (this silicone bowl set is my favorite) stirring after 30 seconds and continuing to heat for 20 second intervals until completely melted (stirring again between each one).
    The second is on your stove using a double boiler method. If you don't have an actual double boiler, you can use this method. Pour your chocolate pieces and white chocolate into 2 separate heatproof medium bowls. Fill 2 medium saucepans with a couple inches of water and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Turn off the heat; set the bowls of chocolate over the water to melt. Stir until smooth.
  • To dip your strawberries, hold each strawberry by the stem and dip them about 3/4 of the way up the strawberry into the melted chocolate. Lift it out of the chocolate and swirl very slightly to let the excess chocolate drip off. Place on the covered baking sheet. Repeat with all of your strawberries. You can dip in white or milk chocolate.
  • If you want to drizzle with chocolate on top, dip a small spoon into the chocolate and make a quick back and forth motion over the strawberry allowing it to fall on both sides of the strawberry. If your chocolate is too thick to drizzle, add 2 teaspoons of coconut oil and gently reheat.
  • You can also use sprinkles to decorate the top of the strawberries while they are still wet.
  • Let the strawberries set for about 15 minutes before serving. You can put them in the refrigerator to speed up the setting time. Store in the fridge for up to 2 days.
