Chocolate Covered Strawberries Recipe
This is a FULL GUIDE for how to make chocolate covered strawberries, along with tips and different flavor variations!
Servings 12 strawberries (approx.)
- 12 medium strawberries, washed
- 4 ounces semi-sweet Baker's or couverture chocolate, chopped (or your choice of chocolate)
- 1 tablespoon neutral flavored oil, vegetable, peanut, canola, etc.
- 1 ounce white chocolate (optional)
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper, and set aside. Lay your strawberries on a paper towel, and pat very well to dry! Set aside as well.
Place chopped chocolate in a heat/microwave safe bowl. Melt in your microwave or over a bain-marie.For the microwave, heat the chocolate on high for 30 seconds. Take the bowl out of the microwave, and stir to ensure even melting. If the chocolate hasn't melted fully yet, heat in 10 second bursts, pausing after each burst to stir, until fully melted.For the bain-marie, fill a pot with 1 inch of water, and heat on your stovetop until it's just barely simmering. Place your bowl of chocolate over the pot (making sure the bottom doesn't touch the water!) Heat, stirring occasionally, until fully melted.
Add your oil to the melted chocolate, and stir to combine. Dip your strawberries in the melted chocolate. I find the easiest way to do this is by poking a skewer into the top of the strawberry (where the leaves are) and using it to dip! Dip about 3/4 of the strawberry, leaving the top leaves exposed.
Transfer the dipped strawberry to your parchment lined baking sheet and remove the skewer (if using). Repeat until all the strawberries are used up. Chill the strawberries for 20 minutes in the fridge, or until the chocolate is set.
(Optional) Melt some white chocolate, and transfer to a small plastic bag. Cut a very small hole off the tip of the bag, and drizzle chocolate on top of the strawberries.
