Ingredients

  • 1 quart fresh strawberrries
  • 1 1/3 to 1 1/2 cups milk, semisweet, or bittersweet chocolate chips or chunks

Tips from our bakers

  • This amount of chocolate will cover about 18 fairly large berries. If your berries are very small, you might want to increase the amount of chocolate.

Directions

see this recipe's blog »

1) Make sure your strawberries are washed, dried, and at room temperature. Using berries with fresh green leaves (rather than bedraggled, brownish leaves) is a better choice.

2) Ready a piece of parchment paper, foil, or waxed paper large enough to hold the berries in a single layer. Place the paper on a baking sheet.

3) Put the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl, and heat it for about 1 minute, just till it looks soft and shiny.

4) Use a spoon to stir the chocolate till it's melted and smooth.

5) Grasp a strawberry by its stem, and swirl it in the chocolate to coat all sides. Place on the paper or foil.

6) Repeat with the remaining berries, spacing them so they don't touch.

7) Refrigerate the berries for 20 minutes; this will set the chocolate. Remove them from the refrigerator, and let them harden completely at room temperature.

8) Serve the same day, if possible.

9) Yield: 1 quart chocolate-dipped strawberries.

  • I made this recipe this morning as a thank you for my boss, and it was really easy and lovely. I used dark chocolate and white chocolate. If you use white chocolate, be careful not to burn it when microwaving. I microwaved for too long and ended up having to start a new batch because I couldn't get all the burned pieces out, which made my strawberry lumpy.

  • I made these last night just before bedtime, in no time at all! The instructions were good, especially with the photos from the blog, and the strawberries will look great at my husband's company Valentine's party today. :-)
