Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Ingredients

How to make Chocolate Dipped Strawberry:

  1. Wash the strawberries and dry them well. This is super important! If the strawberries remain moist, the chocolate will not stick. Wash them, spread them out on a paper towel and let them dry for a bit before soaking them.
  2. Melt the chocolate. This can be done in one of two ways: microwave or double boiler. Microwaves are fast and convenient, but you have to watch them carefully so they don’t burn or overheat the chocolate. Another option is to use a double boiler. This takes a little more work and you need to make sure you have the right size bowl, but the upside is that it melts slowly and the chocolate keeps melting nicely until you’ve submerged all the strawberries.
  3. Dip strawberries in melted chocolate. You can do this with a fork or hold the stem of the strawberry, but the easiest way we’ve found is to use a wooden skewer. Just dip in chocolate and swirl. After removing the excess chocolate, place the strawberries on a parchment-lined baking sheet to harden.
  4. Let’s be fancy! Ok, obviously this is an optional step. But it’s so easy and really makes your strawberries great. Don’t wait to soak them all. Otherwise, you risk having the chocolate harden on the first one before you finish the last one. Melt 2 tablespoons of chocolate and add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil if desired. This will thin the chocolate and give an even drizzle. Pour the melted chocolate into a small piping bag or punching bag and poke a small hole in it. Apply light pressure to the bag, moving it back and forth evenly over the strawberries.
  5. allow it to be set. Leave it on the counter until the strawberries have set, or put them in the refrigerator to speed up the process. Consume immediately or store in refrigerator for up to 2 days.

First and foremost, it’s important to use really good chocolate here. There are only two ingredients here, so make sure they are important. High quality baking chocolates or chocolate chips from Ghiradelli, Lindt, Baker’s, Callebaut are all good options. Avoid using milk chocolate candy bars. Our favorite chocolate is Ghirardelli melty wafers. Semi-sweet, milk, dark, or white chocolate..or a combination can be used. It’s just a matter of taste.

Use dry, room temperature strawberries.

If the strawberries are wet or just out of the fridge, the chocolate will not stick to them. Before dipping them in chocolate, pull them out, wash them well, dab them well with a paper towel, and leave them to dry well for about an hour.
