How To Make Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

Prepare a wire rack with parchment paper underneath. This will help prevent a mess of dripping chocolate.

Place the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring each time, until melted, which should take about 2 minutes in total. Stir until smooth.

Dip each strawberry into the melted chocolate, ensuring the stems remain clean.

Tips For The Best Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

1. Wash and dry thoroughly: Before dipping, wash the strawberries under cold water and pat them completely dry with paper towels. Any moisture on the strawberries can cause the chocolate to seize and become lumpy.

2. Use high-quality chocolate: Select a good quality chocolate for the best flavor and texture. Whether you prefer dark, milk, or white chocolate, choose a good brand that melts smoothly and evenly.

3. Don’t forget the coconut oil: For a smoother chocolate coating, consider adding a small amount of coconut oil to the melted chocolate. This helps achieve a glossy finish and makes the chocolate easier to work with.

4. Melt the chocolate gently: Whether using a microwave or a double boiler, melt the chocolate slowly and in intervals to avoid burning. Stir frequently to ensure even melting.

5. Hold the strawberries by the stem: When dipping the strawberries in chocolate, hold them firmly by the stem to ensure even coverage. Leave a small portion of the strawberry exposed for an elegant look.

6. Tap off excess chocolate: After dipping, gently tap the strawberry against the side of the bowl to remove any excess chocolate. This prevents the chocolate from pooling at the bottom of the strawberry.

7. Customize with toppings: Get creative with toppings like chopped nuts, shredded coconut, or sprinkles. Simply sprinkle them over the chocolate-coated strawberries before the chocolate sets.

8. Chill before serving: For best results, refrigerate the chocolate-covered strawberries for 15-30 minutes to allow the chocolate to set completely. Serve them chilled for a refreshing treat.

9. Make them vegan-friendly: You can easily substitute regular chocolate chips for a vegan variety instead.
