Chocolate Dipped Strawberries Tips & Recipe

Chocolate Dipped Strawberries; How Cool!? Hello friends. Happy Monday.So do you have any chocolate that needs using up from Easter? I know my children have. We have some left-over Lindt chocolate and some white gluten-free chocolate left-over that my children are not fussed with.

(I know what your thinking because I am! Who leaves Lindt chocolate!! I love it).

So if you have some leftover chocolate too, how about melting some down and making some chocolate-dipped strawberries? Especially yummy using quality chocolate.

They are rather tasty and healthier than a lot of chocolate at once and for that reason, what’s not to love?

Chocolate dipped strawberries are a delicious treat that are perfect for any occasion. Here are some tips to ensure that your chocolate dipped strawberries turn out perfectly.

  1. Strawberries and chocolate are a match made in heaven make a delicious treat and a healthier alternative to a bar of chocolate. Of course, why not experiment with different flavoured chocolates too?
  2. Choose ripe strawberries. Yummier the better. The strawberries you choose should be ripe and sweet. Also avoid using strawberries that are too large, as they can be difficult to dip in chocolate.
  3. Use high-quality chocolate, Use high-quality chocolate for dipping. Choose dark, milk, or white chocolate depending on your preference. In this recipe it is dark chocolate but you can change to your preference.
  4. Melt the chocolate properly. Also melt the chocolate slowly over low heat to prevent it from burning. You can use a a heatproof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water or microwave to melt the chocolate.
Chocolate Dipped Strawberries Tips & Recipe

Make: 20 strawberries | Prep time: 30 minutes | Cooking time: 10 minutes

You’ll Need:


  • 200g dark chocolate
  • 20 strawberries (approx.)
  • 100g white chocolate buttons
  • A range of food colouring (optional)
  • Small cake decorations such as silver balls or hundred and thousands (optional)

What To Do:


  1. Firstly, start by melting the dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water. Make sure the base of the bowl does not touch the water. Break the chocolate into small pieces and allow to melt slowly without stirring. While this is happening, lay a piece of parchment paper down.
  2. Once the chocolate has melted, remove from the heat, and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Holding the strawberry by the leaves dip the strawberry completely into the chocolate, right up to top, so just the green is left. Hold the strawberry up and allow the excess to drip off.
  3. Carefully lay the strawberry down onto the parchment paper and allow to cool completely. Continue with all the strawberries.
  4. Melt the white chocolate in the same way, once melted divide the chocolate into bowls and if using food colouring, colour the white chocolate with the different food colouring at this stage.
  5. Pour the melted white chocolate into disposable piping bags. Snip a tiny hole in the end of the piping bag, and drizzle the chocolate over the strawberries. You could do lines, dots or zigzags and alternate colours and designs. If you don’t have a piping bag, use a teaspoon to drizzle the chocolate over the strawberries.
  6. Attach decorations (if using) while the white chocolate is still melted and tacky. Use any remaining white chocolate to coat some extra strawberries. Allow to set completely, and enjoy the same day.

How To Make Chocolate Dipped Strawberries Some Tips To Decorate:

  1. Once the chocolate has set, you can decorate the strawberries with additional melted chocolate, chopped nuts, sprinkles, or other toppings of your choice if you do not want to use the above.
  2. Remember to dry the strawberries. Before dipping them in chocolate, properly wash and dry the strawberries. The chocolate may stop and loose its texture if the strawberries have moisture on them.
  3. Strawberries should be dipped in melted chocolate while being held by the stem. To evenly coat them, give them a gentle swirl.
  4. Let the chocolate set. Lay the chocolate-covered strawberries out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and allow the chocolate to harden for about 30 minutes at room temperature.
  5. Serve right away or keep the chocolate-covered strawberries in the fridge for up to two days if you store them in an airtight container. They are best consumed fresh, though.

Maybe we will make some of these up later. So what do you think? Do you fancy making any of these chocolate-dipped strawberries? Because I could eat some right now!!

    Excellent idea! I hadn’t thought about melting down chocolate candies to use as dipping chocolate. Your strawberries look amazing! My son made some white and milk chocolate covered strawberries for Valentine’s Day. He did a bit of decorating with his and they turned out nicely. More importantly he had fun with it. I may have to pass your idea on to him. Thanks for the inspiration. Stay safe and be well, darlin’!
