How to Make Chocolate Covered Strawberries


Welcome back to another amateur recipe. If I can do it, so can you!

Today we’re talking about an extremely easy recipe for chocolate-covered strawberries. This is a fun activity you can do for valentine’s day or any other special occasion! You can switch up this recipe to make it for birthday parties, Christmas, Easter & so much more!
First things first, let’s answer some common questions.
Do Chocolate-Covered Strawberries Need to be Refrigerated?
I will recommend that you keep them in the fridge—two reasons for this.
You’d generally keep strawberries in the fridge to keep them fresh, so it would be the same even though they are covered in chocolate.
Secondly, depending on what kind of chocolate you use, if you don’t keep it in the fridge, it will get messy on you- you don’t want that.
To keep it safe and, of course, to make them last longer, the fridge will be your best friend.

How Long to Chocolate Covered Strawberries Last?

Ideally, you want to have them within 2-3 days od making them. Even 3 days would be pushing it. Strawberries don’t tend to last long as is, so dipping them in chocolate won’t extend their life!

Are Chocolate Covered Strawberries Healthy?

Well, that’s debatable. I would say they are a better option if you’re going to have them for a special occasion.

For this recipe, 1 strawberry is less than 70 calories, so if you have a few, you’re doing better than having a piece of cake or a box of chocolates!
If you are looking for a healthier option, then I do recommend chocolate-covered strawberries as an alternative for other denser options.

  • 12 Fresh Strawberries
  • 3/4 cup Dark Chocolate Chips You can also use a chopped chocolate bar
  • 1/4 cup White Chocolate Chips Optional


Chocolate Covered Strawberries

  • Begin by making sure your strawberries are washed. Ideally, all your strawberries will have stems (it makes it easier to dip)
  • Pick a small bowl that is about the depth of your strawberries.
  • Melt your dark chocolate chips in the microwave in 30-second intervals. Decrease the time slightly each time, so you don't burn your chocolate!
  • Next, grab the stems of your strawberry and swirl them in your milk chocolate. Once covered, add to a lined baking sheet.
  • Once all your strawberries are covered, place them in the fridge for 5 minutes. If you live in Canada & it's winter (or another cold climate), just put them in the garage 🙃.

For White Chocolate

  • If you choose to do the white chocolate, start by melting it the same way as your dark chocolate. You can also use any coloured chocolate for this step.
  • Once melted, add to a ziplock bag to create a "piping bag."
  • Bring your strawberries back out and drizzle your white chocolate overtop- avoiding the stems.
  • If you choose to put any sprinkles on your strawberries, do this right after your white chocolate is drizzled.
