There's just something magical about the combination of fresh strawberries and rich, velvety chocolate.
It's a fresh treat that is so satisfying And the best part? You can make these delectable treats in just a few minutes using your microwave!
What you'll need:
- Fresh strawberries
- High-quality chocolate chips or chocolate bars
- Microwave-safe bowl
- Parchment paper or wax paper
1. Prepare your strawberries
Since strawberries are the main ingredient, you will want to make sure that they are nice and fresh.
Start by washing your strawberries and patting them dry with a paper towel.
Make sure the strawberries are totally dry before moving on to the next step. This will help the chocolate adhere better to the strawberries.
2. Melt the chocolate
Break the chocolate bars into small pieces or use chocolate chips for convenience.
Place the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave it in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until it's completely melted and smooth.
Be careful not to overheat the chocolate, as it can burn easily.
If the chocolate is too stiff, you can add a tablespoon of coconut oil to help loosen the chocolate.
3. Dip the strawberries
Hold each strawberry by the stem and dip it into the melted chocolate, swirling it around to ensure it's fully coated.
Allow any excess chocolate to drip off before placing the strawberry on a parchment paper-lined tray or plate.
You can also use a toothpick to hold the strawberry if you prefer. This can help keep the strawberry leaves looking good.
4. Let the chocolate set
Place the tray of chocolate covered strawberries in the refrigerator for around 20 minutes, or until the chocolate is nice and set.
Once the chocolate has set, your easy chocolate covered strawberries are ready to be enjoyed! Serve them as a sweet treat for yourself or impress your guests with this simple yet elegant dessert.
You dont even have to wait for a special occasion to whip these treats up. They are so easy and fast to make. I love making these for the kids on the weekends for movie nights, picnics, brunch, girls day and whenever I get the craving.
You could also get pretty creative with these treats and try different variations by adding toppings like white chocolate drizzle and sprinkles on top. The possibilities are endless!
