Extra Fancy Chocolate Covered Strawberries

For my second post, I wanted to make a tutorial on chocolate covered strawberries! I made these for Alys for valentines day. They look super fancy, but are really easy to make. Enjoy!

Finished Chocolate Covered Strawberries

What You Need:

  • Dark and White Chocolate Chips (good quality!)
  • Fresh Strawberries
  • Sliced Almonds
  • Pot with Water
  • Ceramic or Pyrex Bowl and Steaming Rack (or double boiler)
  • Waxed Paper

Step 1.

Wash the strawberries under cold water. Pat them dry with a paper towel. This is one of the most important steps because damp strawberries will cause the chocolate to flake off.

Dry your strawberries well!

Step 2.

Set up your double boiler (or if you don’t have one, a ceramic/pyrex bowl on a steaming rack in a pot with a small amount of water). The idea behind the double boiler is to not let the chocolate burn. Melt the chocolate until it is a smooth consistency with no chunks.

Step 3.

Dip strawberries and evenly coat them with chocolate. Place them on a sheet of waxed paper to cool. If you are going to add toppings jump to Step 4 before they cool.

Step 4.

Chop Almonds or any other toppings of your choice and sprinkle them on top of the strawberries before they harden.

Step 5.

Heat up White chocolate. Put it in a ziploc bag and snip off a corner to make an icing bag. Drizzle the white chocolate over the strawberries in a messy pattern.

Step 6.

Admire your creations and enjoy eating them!

Final presentation

Thanks for reading – Good luck and let me know how they turn out!
