It’s a lot easier than you think. It really only takes 3 easy steps for this Chocolate Dipped Strawberries recipe.
How To Make Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries
First, start with fresh-picked big organic strawberries. Don’t use any with any with bruised spots. They won’t keep well. Keep them whole.
You’ll want to rinse the strawberries, dry them lightly, set them on a towel or paper towel-lined dish or sheet-pan and ensure they are dried all the way! They are best for dipping with no moisture is left on the top of your strawberries.
After the strawberries are completely dry you can dip them in melted chocolate we used our Crock-Pot Little Dipper
Or you can melt your chocolate until it’s shiny and stirs smooth in the microwave, with coconut oil added. The problem with this is the chocolate will lose its warm temperature rather quickly. Then it doesn’t work as well when you make a lot of them. I linked to the little dipper with a warmer. Once it is heated to the melting point/proper temperature you can keep it on warm. Perfect for dipping.
Or use a double boiler method to melt chocolate.
We kept our little dipper on during the whole process. And tag-teamed the work. You can do this solo. I only stopped for a few photos to share with you. We dipped some of the strawberries all the way and some halfway. Any way you do it they’ll be sooo good.
- After dipping you add them to a lined baking sheet with a Silpat or parchment paper. Put them in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill.
You can use milk chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, chocolate chips (we used 1 bag ) but, later tried chocolate wafers for melting and liked them better. If you like you can use white chocolate or white chocolate wafers. If you want to get fancy you can get piping bags and drizzle different chocolates, add chopped nuts or pretzels. We like the strawberries simply dipped in chocolate.
