RECIPE: Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

June 12, 2017

This recipe features the elegant combination of juicy fresh strawberries with rich, luxurious dark chocolate.

Why Try? They're easier to make than you think--the recipe has only three ingredients.


  1. Clean and dry strawberries, leaving stems and leaves intact.
  2. In a double boiler, over low heat, melt chocolate and oil; stir to combine.
  3. Lay waxed paper on flat surface. Dip strawberries one by one into chocolate mixture, allowing extra chocolate to drip off, lay onto waxed paper to set.
  4. If your kitchen is warm, strawberries may be refrigerated for 10 minutes to set chocolate.

The strawberries could also be coated in various chopped nuts or toasted coconut immediately after being dipped in chocolate. 


  • 25 large strawberries
  • 1 (12 ounce) bag dark chocolate chips
    TIP: Tip: When using white chocolate chips, more oil may be needed to achieve a drizzling consistency.
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    TIP: Switch out milk or white chocolate for the dark chocolate in this recipe for flavor and color variation. Add visual interest by drizzling milk or white chocolate over chocolate-dipped strawberries.
