Are you looking to surprise your love with a little something extra special today? Consider making your very own Chocolate Covered Strawberries. They are super simple to make. If you can melt chocolate you can make these!
I about had a heart attack when I saw the price of chocolate covered strawberries in my local grocery store! There were 4 measly strawberries in the package, dipped in chocolate for $6.99! Yes…$6.99! I mean you can purchase an entire container of Organic Strawberries and a bag of semi-sweet Nestle morsels for that price!
So I made it my mission to come home and share with you a super simple Chocolate Covered Strawberries recipe. PLEASE, I beg you, don’t EVER buy Chocolate Covered Strawberries again after this, OK?!?
Now, you don’t have to, but, using paraffin wax will thin the chocolate out which makes it a bit easier to work with. It also gives the chocolate a nice shine to it and makes for a wonderful presentation! If you don’t have Paraffin Wax you can totally omit this as I did in the How to Make Chocolate Covered Strawberries video above.
- 1 Package Organic Strawberries, washed and drained
- 2 C Semi Sweet Chocolate (you can totally do a dark chocolate if you wish!)
- 1/3 C Paraffin Wax
- Over a double broiler melt chocolate and paraffin wax. (Double broiler is a sauce pan with a little amount of water and a pyrex bowl resting on top. Make sure the water DOES NOT touch the bowl.)
- Ensure your strawberry is completely dry. Grabbing the leaf dip into the chocolate. Let the excess drip off.
- Place on a sheet of wax paper to harden, 15-30 minutes.
In the video I added Semi Sweet Morsels to make them look like a Tuxedo and would be perfect for a wedding. I also added Chocolate Sprinkles…because who doesn’t love Sprinkles? I’ve also done white chocolate to look like a football and also white chocolate drizzled over a chocolate covered strawberry and took toothpicks to draw lines to create a cool look to them.
Enjoy with a nice bowl of yogurt, ice cream or some bubbly with your significant other. I tend to make these a few times a year as a special treat and the girls LOVE it. They pretend to be fancy for a night!
