Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries

Course Dessert
Cuisine American


  • 24 whole ripe strawberries
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips


  • Pour the chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl and place in the microwave, using the defrost setting, for two minutes. Remove and stir. Repeat this process until the chocolate becomes smooth.
  • Dip one strawberry, holding it by the green cap, into the melted chocolate. Shake the strawberry lightly while you withdraw it from the chocolate, then swirl it in a quick motion to remove the excess chocolate.
  • Set the strawberry on a sheet of waxed paper, with the tip pointing upward, to cool. Repeat until all strawberries have been covered. Allow to cool at room temperature.
  • For a fancier look, melt 3/4 cup of white chocolate chips, using the same method described above, and drizzle white stripes over the dried dark or milk chocolate.
  • You can also dip some of the strawberries in white chocolate and drizzle these with brown stripes. Experiment with different patterns and designs!
