How To Make chocolate covered strawberries

  • 1
    In a microwave-safe bowl, add coconut oil to semisweet chocolate; stir well to coat.
  • 2
    Place the bowl in the microwave and process on High for 20 seconds before stirring it. Return the bowl for another 20 seconds and repeat the same steps until the chocolate is nice and smooth.
  • 3
    Holding by the stem, dip each strawberry into the melted chocolate, rotating it to completely coat the fruit and get it as close as possible to the top.
  • 4
    Gently wipe one side against the inside edge of the bowl and let the excess chocolate drip off before placing that side down on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
  • 5
    Transfer them to the fridge to harden, about 15 minutes.
  • 6
    To decorate, combine white chocolate with coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl; stir well.
  • 7
    Process on High for 20 seconds before stirring the chocolate. Return the bowl for another 20 seconds and repeat the same steps until the chocolate is nice and smooth.
  • 8
    Pour the melted white chocolate into a small Ziploc bag and cut a tiny piece off of one corner. Squeeze out the chocolate in a back and forth zigzag motion.
  • 9
    Transfer them to the fridge until ready to serve
