Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries

Yield

16 Servings

Juicy strawberries are made even better when dipped in chocolate. And to take your berries a step further, try coating them with another flavor and/or texture boosting ingredient before the chocolate sets. We like using various types of chopped nuts, shredded coconut, cocoa powder, etc. 

Ingredients

  • 16 large strawberries, washed and patted completely dry with paper towels
  • 8 ounces bittersweet or milk chocolate, coarsely chopped or grated

How to Make It

  1. Place berries on parchmentlined baking sheet and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 1 hour.

  2. Place chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high, just until melted, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk until smooth.

  3. Hold a berry by stem end and dip three-quarters of it into melted chocolate, making sure to coat berry's surface and letting excess drip back into bowl. Return to parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining strawberries. Refrigerate until chocolate is set, about 1 hour, or up to 6 hours.
