How To Make Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Happy Valentine's Day!  

We all have those we can show love to today whether it be co-workers, neighbors, friends or family... or maybe even a sweetheart!  

If you haven't yet considered how to show love I'd like to offer you this very easy and quick but most delicious way of presenting your affection. 

  • about 1 pound chilled strawberries
  • about 250 grams or 1 cup chopped good quality dark chocolate
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  1. Wash and dry the strawberries.  Use a paper towel to make sure the strawberries are moisture free.
  2. Place chopped chocolate in a narrow measuring cup.  (easier to dip berries into deep chocolate)
  3. Place in microwave and heat on 50% power for about 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until the chocolate has melted.
  4. Gather all the green stems together and use that to hold the strawberry.  Dip the strawberry and then let it drip off before placing on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  5. Place chocolate chips in a pastry bag.  Melt the white chocolate chips, again at 50% power for less than a minute.  Squeeze the bag to make sure all the chips are melted.
  6. Cut a little hole at the bottom of the pastry decorating bag and squeeze out a drizzle over all the strawberries.  
  7. Place in a refrigerator to set.  


  1. What a confectionate gift! Will have to find those pastry bags...handy...

  2. Perfect! Great tip on melting the chocolate for drizzling right in a pastry bag! Happy Valentines Day to you and your loves too!

  3. Oh my...first of all, those are BEAUTIFUL looking berries! I can almost taste that yummy chocolate coating and the white chocolate certainly was a lovely finishing touch! Happy Valentine's Day!

  5. What an artistic work of art. Beautiful...
