How to do strawberries dipped in chocolate

1. Start by washing the strawberries thoroughly and drying them. They need to be dry for the chocolate to attach to the strawberry.

2. Next, melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl or in a saucepan set over low heat.

3. Once the chocolate is melted, dip each strawberry into the chocolate, letting the excess drip off.

4. Place the strawberries on a baking sheet and refrigerate until the chocolate is set, about 30 minutes. If your strawberries are already cold you don’t have to refrigerate them as they will set really quick.

Can you double-dip chocolate-covered strawberries?

Technically, yes. However, the second coat of chocolate will not adhere as well to the first and may end up looking a bit messy. If you want to double-dip, make sure to let the first coat of chocolate set completely before dipping again.

Do I need to use special chocolate for dipped strawberries?

No, you can use any type of chocolate that you like. However, we recommend using good quality chocolate that is at least 60% cacao for the best flavour and results. Chocolate chips or chocolate wafers also work well for this recipe.

What if my chocolate seizes when I melt it?

If your chocolate seizes when melting, don’t worry! Just add a teaspoon or two of vegetable oil or shortening to the chocolate and stir until smooth. This will help to bring the chocolate back to a smooth, dip-able consistency.

How long do chocolate-dipped strawberries last?

Chocolate-dipped strawberries are best eaten within a day or two of being made. However, they will last for up to a week if stored properly in an airtight container in the refrigerator

What is the best way to store chocolate-dipped strawberries?

The best way to store chocolate-dipped strawberries is in an airtight container in the refrigerator. If you are not planning on eating them right away, make sure to store them stem-side up so the chocolate does not get soft and runny.

Can I dip other fruits in chocolate?

Yes! Chocolate-dipped fruits make a great healthy snack or dessert. Try dipping bananas, apples, oranges, or even pretzels in chocolate. The possibilities are endless!

How to decorate the chocolate-dipped strawberries

There are many ways that you can decorate your chocolate-dipped strawberries. Some ideas include:

1. Sprinkling them with chopped nuts, such as almonds or peanuts.

2. Roll them in shredded coconut or finely chopped dried fruit.

3. Drizzling them with a contrasting colour of melted chocolate like the one in this recipe. Using a teaspoon scoop some melted white chocolate and let it run off the spoon, when you have a thin run going cover the strawberry to and fro to form a zig-zag effect.

4. Dipping them halfway in chocolate and then letting the excess drip off so that only the bottom half is covered.

These chocolate-dipped strawberries are a simple and elegant treat that is sure to impress! They make a great addition to any party or gathering, and they also make a wonderfully romantic gesture for that special someone in your life.
