Nothing is better than a chocolate covered strawberry. It's the perfect ending to a special meal. This recipe will help you save some money because you can easily make store-bought quality chocolate covered strawberries at home. They're tart, yet sweet and very chocolaty. We absolutely loved all the topping options for these chocolate strawberries. We're not sure which was our favorite. These are very impressive when served!

How To Make chocolate covered strawberries

  • Washed strawberries on a paper towel.
    Wash strawberries. Set aside so they can get room temperature.
  • Chocolate morsels in two bowls.
    Empty both chocolates into separate bowls. Line trays with parchment paper.
  • Melted chocolate in a bowl.
    Heat each bowl in a microwave for 10-second increments. Take out and stir each time until melted.
  • Dipping strawberries into the chocolate.
    Dip a strawberry into the chocolate. Place it on its side on parchment paper.
  • Sprinkling coconut on the strawberries.
    While still wet, sprinkle topping on strawberry.
  • Nuts sprinkled on the strawberries.
    I prefer the coconut on the milk chocolate and the walnuts on the peanut butter milk chocolate, but it's all up to you! ;P
  • A tray of chocolate covered strawberries ready to chill.
    Once you're finished dipping and topping, place trays in refrigerator and viola, you're done~!
  • Decorated Chocolate Covered Strawberries with champagne.
    If you want to design your choco-berries, just add a drop of veggie oil and reheat (this makes it thin out). Grab a spoon and dip and move back and forth over it and add your personal touch.
