How to make BEAUTIFUL Chocolate Covered Strawberries! So fun and romantic!

Tessa's Recipe Rundown...

Taste: Strawberry and chocolate are a match made in heaven, no doubt about that!
Texture: The chocolate is thick and shatters when you bite into it, giving way to a tender and juicy gem of a berry underneath.
Ease: Super easy, but if you’re anything like me you may get chocolate on yourself!
Appearance: Just stunning. Like something on display at a fancy chocolate shop.
Pros: Romantic, simple, and totally customizable. Can be served alone or for a special garnish on cakes or cupcakes.
Cons: None!
Would I make this again? Absolutely.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

000
Yields 1 pound chocolate covered strawberries
Prep Time 15 minutes Cook Time 25 minutes Total Time 40 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 pound strawberries, washed and dried thoroughly
  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil or vegetable shortening, divided
  • 3 ounces white (and/or milk chocolate), chopped
  • Chocolate chips, nuts or sprinkles for coating, optional

Directions

  1. Place the semisweet chocolate and 3/4 teaspoon coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second bursts, stirring between each burst, until just melted. Be careful not to overheat.

    Line a rimmed sheet pan with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.

    Insert a toothpick into the strawberry’s stem, pushing the leaves upward, and dip into the semisweet chocolate, coating completely. Tapping the toohpick, let the excess chocolate fall back into the bowl. If desired, dip into a shallow bowl of chocolate chips, nuts, or sprinkles. Set the strawberry on the parchment, sliding forward slightly and continue with the remaining strawberries. If the chocolate becomes too cool and firm at any point simply reheat in the microwave.

    Place the white chocolate and 1/4 teaspoon coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second bursts, stirring between each burst, until just melted. Be careful not to overheat. Remove the white chocolate to a ziptop bag and snip a very small hole in one corner. Drizzle the white chocolate over the strawberries.

    Let the strawberries set before serving, about 30 minutes at room temperature or 15 minutes in the fridge.

    I just tried these and the mini chocolate chips fell right off after I rolled the dunked berries. Also the white chocolate drizzle turned out horrid lookinh-nothing like yours. I think the white chocolate cooled too fast & I snipped to big a hole?
