chocolate covered strawberries

For the last few years, I have been ordering Chocolate Covered Strawberries and having them delivered to my Valentine. (it’s a long story…but we have a running joke about chocolate and strawberries!) Anyway, I remembered a recipe I had used about 20 years ago and this year I dug that back up and made my own. Less than a quarter of the price! I put them in a cleaned out clear egg carton and it looked really pretty! Enjoy! (oh…and you don’t have to wait until next Valentine’s Day to make these!)



6 ounces Chocolate Chips

4 ounces White Chocolate Chips

Decorating Sugar


Wash and DRY (this is important) strawberries. Melt chocolate chips in microwave for 2 minutes and stir. If not melted completely, put back in for 30 seconds at a time. Dip strawberries one by one in the chocolate leaving a small rim around the stem. Sprinkle with decorating sugar while they’re still wet. Drizzle white chocolate or wait 20 minutes and dip the tip in the white chocolate then sprinkle with sugar. It’s up to you! Place in refrigerator 10 minutes.
