Ingredients

  • 12 strawberries
  • 6 ounce each dark chocolate and white chocolate melting/baking chocolates

For Toppings:

  • Sprinkles
  • Sprinkle sugar crystals
  • Mini Chocolate chips
  • Chocolate vermicelli

Instructions

  • Use best quality firm, ripe and sweet strawberries for the recipe. It’s better to choose large sized strawberries. Leave the green stem on it. It’s easier to work by holding the stem while dipping into melted chocolate.
  • Do not skip washing strawberries first. Strawberries usually have debris on it and it needs to be washed. Place all fresh firm strawberries in a bowl of room temperature water.
  • Rinse it well. Remove strawberries from water and dry it on paper towel. You need to ensure all the strawberries are completely dry, including the green stem on it. Using another paper towel, pat dry strawberries on all sides.
  • Using microwave or double boiler melt chocolate until smooth and runny. Use small and wide open bowl to easily dip the berries. Do not over heat chocolate, it will clump.
  • Dip completely dry strawberries in melted chocolate. Scrap off excess chocolate at the tip of the bowl.
  • If serving it plain, leave the strawberries to set on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • If adding toppings, while chocolate coating is still wet coat it with crushed nuts, sprinkles. To add chocolate drizzle decoration, allow the chocolate coating to set completely, then drizzle it with melted chocolate and allow it to set.
  • You can make white chocolate covered strawberries using white melted chocolate.
  • Best served the same day it’s made.

Notes

  1. Pick best quality firm, ripe and sweet red all the way up strawberries.
  2. Wash strawberries to get rid of the debris. Dry them really well.
  3. Use premium quality melting (baking) chocolate. Melting chocolate disks are best, then melt well. If you can’t get melting chocolate wafer or disk, use melting chocolate bars.
  4. Melt chocolate until 90% melted. Keep stirring to melt rest of the chocolate chunks in the residue heat. Do not over heat chocolate.
  5. If melted chocolate is too thick, thin it down by adding about ½ teaspoon of coconut oil. You want smooth, thin consistency melted chocolate for dipping.
  6. If you are rolling the berries with nuts or sprinkles, do it when the chocolate coating is still wet. If you are drizzling with melted chocolate decoration, allow coated chocolate to set completely then drizzle.
