Quick and Easy Chocolate Covered Strawberries

To save some money, I always make my own chocolate covered strawberries. This recipe is easy to make and delicious to eat!

Ingredients:

  • 1 package of strawberries with stems intact
  • 1 package (12 oz or less) of your favorite chocolate chips
  • 1 Tb of vegetable oil (or a less)
  1. Wash and completely DRY the strawberries. If the strawberries are moist, the chocolate won’t stick to the strawberries properly.
  2. Using a double boiler, add about an inch of water to the bottom pot and add the chips to the top pot. (If you don’t have a double boiler, two pot of slight size difference will work.) Use low medium heat and the heat will slowly cause the chips to melt. Using a spatula, stir the chips and add the oil to create a smoother texture.  Remove from heat.
  3. Stir each strawberry into the mixture and allow the excess to drip off before placing it onto wax paper. Place the strawberries in the fridge for no more than 1 hour, to prevent condensation.

I love using dark chocolate chips for the strawberries and using other topping as well. Coconut flakes, chopped nuts and candy can be used to coat the strawberry as well.
