Instructions 

Rinse strawberries and dry.

Quick tip: Be sure the strawberries are completely dry and cold before dipping them in chocolate. If not, it will be difficult to coat them evenly.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place chocolate in a small microwavable bowl and microwave chocolate at 30-second increments, stir chocolate in between until smooth.

Dip strawberries into the chocolate coating, letting it coat the whole berry and let the excess chocolate drip back into the bowl.

If you decide to add something like chocolate chips, place the dipped strawberries in the mini chocolate chips immediately after dipping it in the chocolate.

Place the strawberries on a plate or baking sheet lined with wax paper, and refrigerate until they’re firm.

How to Decorate Chocolate Covered Strawberries

There are many ways to decorate chocolate covered strawberries. You can use any kind of chocolate you’d like. For best results, good quality chocolate such as milk chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, or white chocolate chips.

Some popular methods include drizzling melted chocolate over the top, rolling them in cocoa powder or sprinkles, or adding finely chopped nuts, peanut butter chips or coconut. You can be as creative as you like and come up with your own ideas!

How to Package Chocolate Covered Strawberries

There are a few ways to package chocolate covered strawberries. One way is to put them in a small container and place the container in a larger container filled with shredded paper or tissue paper. Another way is to put them on a small cardboard tray, and then wrap the tray in cellophane or plastic wrap. 

How to Store Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Chocolate covered strawberries are a delicious treat that can be enjoyed any time of the year. However, they must be stored properly in order to maintain their quality and taste. 

The best way to store them is in the refrigerator in an airtight container, where they will stay fresh for at least one week. If you don’t have time to refrigerate them before serving, at least it’ll give the chocolate time to soften so that it doesn’t break apart when biting into one of these delicious treats! 

How Long Will Chocolate Covered Strawberries Last?

It’s not recommended to store chocolate covered strawberries for more than a week because the taste and texture will start to change.

These are so nice. I've made them once to bring to a get together, and totally forgot about them. I like this new way to dip them with the mini chips - must try!
