Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries


Tempt your valentine with a homemade, melt-in-your-mouth delicacy that will warm his heart and ignite his passion. You’ll have him eating out of the palm of your hand in no time!

Step 1: Melt a generous amount of chocolate chips over a low-heat oven. Use a double boiler to ensure you don’t burn the chocolate. Stir occasionally.

Step 2: Rinse your berries, making sure to check for bruises and dark spots. Leave the stems and leaves on for a more polished, finished straw- berry. After rinsing, dry each berry well.

Step 3: Line a cooking sheet with wax paper or parchment paper.

Step 4: Once the chocolate reaches a smooth, creamy consistency, turn off the stove to avoid burning the chocolate.

Step 5: Dip each strawberry completely into the chocolate, twirling them around so the berries get entirely coated. Set berries on cookie set to cool.

Step 6: Store berries in refrigerator until the chocolate has completely hardened.

Step 7: Once the chocolate has hardened, drizzle melted white chocolate in a zigzag pattern across each berry, or get crazy with a “tuxedo” pattern.

Step 8: Enjoy with the one you love!
