Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Chocolate Covered Strawberries, an easy to make sweet treat with just 2 ingredients. If you love chocolate and strawberries then you must try this to know how delicious they are !

To be honest, it's not a recipe, just a simple DIY treat. Even kids can make these treats on their own. But they are a few things that you should take care of ! So that' what i'm going to explain in this post.


First thing first ! Let's talk about the strawberries. Make sure the strawberries are fresh, brightly colored and sweet.  

Make sure to wash and pat dry them well before melting the chocolate. Also don't trim the green part of the strawberries because that will be helpful to hold the strawberries while dipping in the melted chocolate. 


You can  make this with any type of chocolates like milk chocolate, semi-sweet or dark chocolate. I had tried this before with milk chocolate and i felt it was too sweet. So my personal favorite is dark chocolate. It nicely compliment the sweetness and the freshness of the strawberries.

In today's post, i have used the double boiler method to melt the chocolate but you can melt the chocolate in the microwave too.

Finally let's answer the FAQ while making this Chocolate Covered Strawberries

How do you get chocolate to stick to strawberries?

  • Water and chocolate don't work together. So make sure that the strawberries are dry. After washing the strawberries, dry them well with the paper towel to absorb all the excess moisture
  • Let the melted chocolate cool a bit so that it sticks to the strawberries well.
Now let's check out on how to make chocolate covered strawberries.
