Chocolate Covered Strawberries

A few years back I bought a chocolate covered strawberry from Godiva. I don’t remember how much I paid for that one strawberry, but I did do a little online shopping for them the other day. For 1 dozen, the prices ranged from 20 to 60 dollars! If you are not willing (like me) to pay that much for these beautiful treats, then I have great news for you friends. You can make one dozen yourself for about 5 dollars or less! (Depending on the price of strawberries in your state and what kind of chocolate you decide to use of course!)

Whether your planning a romantic evening with your spouse or just wanting a sweet treat to take to a dinner party, chocolate covered strawberries are a simple, inexpensive and great way to please your taste buds.

 

Ingredients

Directions

#1. Line a plate with parchment paper

#2. Place 5 ounces of chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl. Set microwave to medium power, place bowl in microwave for 1 minute and stir. Repeat at one minute intervals until chocolate chips are melted and smooth. 

#3. Place bowl on counter and while holding onto the leaves of the strawberry, dip strawberry into the center of the bowl. Twirl around slowly, that way each side is covered.

#4. Then lift strawberry straight up and let excess chocolate drip off the strawberry. Then lay strawberry on to the lined plate.

(Little Buddy was so excited about these. As you can tell he is waiting to just gobble it up!)

#5. Place strawberries in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or until the strawberry easily lifts from the parchment paper.

#6. Place onto serving platter and Enjoy!

Decorate:

  • For a sprinkled chocolate covered strawberry. Add sprinkles into a small bowl. After dipping strawberry into melted chocolate, immediately dip into sprinkles and then lay strawberry on a lined plate and chill for at least 30 minutes.
  • For a chocolate covered strawberry with drizzled chocolate overlay. Melt 3 ounces of white chocolate in the microwave. Then place into a Ziploc sandwich bag, make small cut with scissors to the corner of the bag and let white chocolate drizzle back and forth over chocolate covered strawberry.

Tip:

  • For large groups and unknown allergies, I recommend Enjoy Life chocolate chips they are dairy free, nut free and gluten free.
