Chocolate Covered Strawberries


Chocolate covered strawberries are a Valentine’s Day staple. You’ll find them at nearly every bakery and grocery store in town, but sometimes they come with a hefty price tag. I actually was at a bakery recently that was selling these bad boys for $5 EACH. That’s absolutely insane and is the reason why this year I decided to make my own. I actually went to Aldi and bought strawberries, Aldi melting chocolate and a variety jar of sprinkles. All which cost under $6!

Chocolate covered strawberries are not only great for Valentine’s Day, but they’re the perfect dessert option for a romantic night in, girls night, a bridal shower and more. You may think that chocolate covered strawberries are too difficult to make, but the truth is they’re not. With my tips and tricks, you can easily impress anyone with your beautiful berries. 


Strawberries can be tricky to purchase depending on the time of year. My favorite berries are when I can pick them from a local Michigan farm in June, but it’s February and not June so I had to head to the grocery store. The tastiest strawberries are actually the small ones, the larger berries typically have little to no flavor at all. You’ll also want to find berries that have good stems that you can hold onto as you dip the berry into the chocolate.
 Your berries should be dry when you dip them. So make sure you wash them, and then place them on paper towel allowing plenty of time for them to dry. The chocolate cannot adhere to a wet berry, not to mention water and chocolate do not mix well together.

Picking your chocolate. I actually believe this is a personal preference. I don’t like using mini chips at all, but some people do. Sometimes I will go to a cake supply store and buy chocolate melts from them, and times like this I just buy my chocolate from Aldi. Whatever chocolate you prefer is the kind you should use for your berries. You can use a double boiler to melt the chocolate, or if you want an easy alternative, put it in a bowl in the microwave and melt it on defrost.
