EASY Dark Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Easy Dark Chocolate Covered Strawberries are the easiest sweet treats you can whip up in a matter of minutes.  A wonderful healthy treat for the whole family to enjoy!  And, they will love the surprise for Valentines Day!  Delicious fresh fruit, dark chocolate, and lots of antioxidants, what could be better?

First,  you will need to rinse strawberries under cold water, then gently pat dry on paper towels.  And set them aside.

Next,  you can melt dark chocolate either on stove top using a double boiler, or in a microwave. Which ever method you prefer is fine.

The only thing you need to remember is that chocolate hates water.  When you are melting chocolate, be careful not to allow it in contact with water, it will be unworkable.  Also, chocolate burns easily, so it’s best to melt chocolate slowly.

Then, take each strawberry, using the stem to handle them easier, and dip 3/4 of the strawberry into the melted chocolate, carefully twirling it to cover the strawberry, and place onto a serving platter lined with wax paper.  Set them aside to cool.

 

 

Using good quality dark chocolate for these chocolate covered strawberries will give you better results with this recipe.  And better texture and chocolate flavor.

If you want to use skewers when serving, it’s best to dip the strawberries by hand first, then after they cool down and the chocolate is completely harden, slip a skewer into each one through the tops.

 

Easy Chocolate Covered Strawberries are wonderful and rewarding!  No need to refrigerate them for a long time and no need for plates or spoons when serving.

A fun chocolate dessert to make, easily and anytime!

Enjoy!

    Why spend $5 for a chocolate covered strawberry when I can buy a whole box and chocolate and make them myself! Awesome post.
