Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Do you love chocolate-covered strawberries? Me too! They are one of those desserts that always feel so incredibly fancy. And yet, they are super easy to make. In fact, I bet once you learn how to make them at home you’ll never buy chocolate-covered strawberries again.

Homemade chocolate-dipped strawberries are fresher and you can decorate them any way you like. Plus, it’s far less expensive to make these irresistible treats at home. All around it’s a win-win situation.

What You’ll Need

Here’s a quick look at what you’ll need to make chocolate covered strawberries. Be sure to scroll down to the recipe card for specific amounts.

  • Fresh strawberries
  • Chocolate – You can use bittersweet, semi-sweet, milk or white chocolate.
  • White chocolate & pink gel icing – These are for the option icing decorations.
  • Toppings – Oreo crumbs and sprinkles are my favorites. I’ve shared even more ideas below.

What type of chocolate should I use?

Since these strawberries are made with just strawberries and chocolate, the chocolate quality is pretty important. Not to mention that you want a smooth melted chocolate that will dry firm enough and not be tough to dip into.

I like to use Ghirardelli dark chocolate melting wafers (which also come in white and milk chocolate) because they are pretty foolproof, but they also have dark chocolate baking chips that would work well.

Another good option is the Baker’s baking bar chocolate. Just don’t use your average chocolate bar that’s meant for eating.
