How To Make Chocolate Strawberries: A Surprisingly Easy Dessert

Expert Author Melanie SteeleChocolate strawberries are the perfect dessert to end a romantic meal for two, or an elegant dinner party. But buying chocolate dipped strawberries can be pretty expensive. So making chocolate covered strawberries at home is the perfect solution!

The fact is, making chocolate strawberries is incredibly easy to do. You can get amazing results at a fraction of the cost. All you need is some strawberries, and a bit of good chocolate to melt.
So how do you do it? It’s easy.

Step 1: Pick The Strawberries

Picking the right strawberries is important. Your chocolate dipped strawberries will only be as good as the strawberries you start with. Of course, smothering anything in chocolate tends to make it way better, but still, you’ll get better results with better strawberries.

Here’s what you should look for when you’re picking the berries:

  • Try to find ripe strawberries. Ripe strawberries are a nice, bright red. They’re also firm, but should give a little when you press them. And they also smell great!
  • Bigger isn’t always better, but when you’re making chocolate covered strawberries, bigger berries are a lot easier to work with. But ripeness comes before size!
