Recipe: Chocolate Covered Strawberries

I’m so happy I learned how to make chocolate covered strawberries. They are a premium-priced indulgence; around Valentine’s Day, the average chocolate shop in Los Angeles charges $20 for only a half-dozen. I definitely don’t mind splurging once in awhile, but I can polish off a whole dozen of chocolate covered strawberries in one sitting. Therefore it’s important for me to know how to make them so I can enjoy them more often at a lesser cost.

How to Make Chocolate Covered Strawberries:

A perfect treat for Valentine’s Day, or anytime.

You Will Need:

  • 1 lb fresh strawberries, washed and dried
  • 1/4 lb (4 oz) baking chocolate
  • A heat proof container
  • 1 small sauce pan

What to Do:

Break off half the chocolate bar (~2 oz) and place into heatproof container. Save the other half of the chocolate bar for later!

Fill a small saucepan with water. Bring to a boil, then to a simmer.

As the chocolate melts, stir to help smooth it out. Once completely melted, remove from heat and let cool.

Once the chocolate has cooled down, dip a strawberry into it, covering as much of the strawberry as you can. Tip: this process is easier if a skewer is inserted into the head of the strawberry.

Place each dipped strawberry on a parchment-lined baking sheet and let cool. Once all strawberries have been dipped, place in the fridge to harden.

Slightly imperfect, but perfectly delicious! I can’t wait to make these again, with white chocolate and crushed peanuts!
