Easy, classic chocolate-covered strawberries are the perfect combination of ripe, juicy strawberries in shiny melted chocolate! Add your favorite drizzles, assorted toppings, and Valentine's Day heart-themed decorations to make them complete!
10ozchocolate chips(dark, semi-sweet, milk chocolate, or white chocolate morsels)
Ready your fresh strawberries by making sure they're are rinsed clean and then fully dried. Water will seize up your melted chocolate and make getting a smooth chocolate coating difficult.
2 lbs strawberries
Pour the chocolate chips (whichever desired flavors) each into their own microwave-safe bowls. Heat in 30-second increments, stirring between heating cycles. Stir vigorously after 1 ½ - 2 minutes of heating time, which will finish melting any remaining chocolate chips.
10 oz chocolate chips
Dip your strawberries into the chocolate by pulling the stem back, then twist the berry to coat in the chocolate. Lift and twist and allow as much excess chocolate to drip from your berries as possible.
Place each chocolate covered strawberry onto a parchment paper or waxed paper-lined baking sheet. *Alternatively, you can dip or sprinkle each berry with red or pink Valentine's Day decor, crushed nuts, or coconut after coating with chocolate.
To drizzle berries with white chocolate or a contrasting chocolate, dip a fork into the melted chocolate and drizzle over chocolate coated strawberries.
Chill chocolate-covered strawberries for 15 minutes in the refrigerator.
