Easy Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

These are incredibly easy to make and perfect for your weekend plans and summer get-togethers. Depending on how much you want to make, it doesn’t really matter if you use exact measurements so just start with figuring out how many strawberries you want to make and just keep melting chocolate as you go.

To give you an idea, this is what I used and only had a little bit of chocolate morsels left over:

4 Pounds Of Strawberries

1 Pound Of Milk Chocolate Morsels

1 Pound Of Dark Chocolate Morsels

1 Pound Of White Chocolate Morsels

Extra Toppings:

Pecans
Pretzels
Unsweetened Coconut

Directions:

Wash all of the strawberries and lay them out on dish towels to dry. You may want to do this about a half hour ahead of time because the strawberries need to be completely dry for the chocolate to hold.

Cover trays with wax paper to lay the strawberries on as you dip them.

Place all of the chocolate and your toppings in separate bowls for dipping.

Melted Chocolate

Melt the chocolate according to the directions on the bag. Typically it would be to melt about a cup for 1 minute and stir and keep melting in 10-15 second intervals until all the clumps are melted.

Then the fun part! Dip the strawberries in the chocolate and lay on the wax paper. If you want to do additional toppings just dip the strawberries in the chocolate and then immediately dip right into the crushed pretzels, nuts, coconut or whatever it is that you desire!

If you want to be really fancy and add a design with chocolate like we did, then do this:

Melt white chocolate in a bowl according to the directions on the package and then pour it into a sandwich sized zip lock bag. Squeeze all the air out and then seal and make a small cut on one of the bottom corners of the bag. Squeeze the chocolate out of the corner and make designs over your strawberries!

After you fill a tray, put the entire tray in the refridgerator and leave it in there for 10-15 minutes until the strawberries are set.
