If you are only making a few chocolate covered strawberries to enjoy or for a small party, you can simply use the microwave or cooktop for melting your chocolate for dipping the strawberries. But, if you are making a large quantity, I recommend using a fondue pot to make it easier on yourself. The fondue pot keeps the chocolate at the perfect temperature for dipping the strawberries so that you aren’t constantly heating and reheating the chocolate as you work. Game changer for a routine chocolate dipper like me. Ha!

      Hi Jessica,
      I generally use an organic coconut oil made by Spectrum from my local grocery store. There are various brands of coconut oil available though.

    Robyn, for more than 20 years I have made these using 1/2 dark and 1/2 milk chocolate. EVERYBODY loves them, not too dark or too sweet. And while I understand using coconut oil I think the option of using vegetable shortening would keep anyone from having to buy a very large and expensive container of coconut oil.. it is only 2 t. after all.

    Where’s the milk added in ?
    I’ve never made chocolate dipped strawberries.
    It sounds delicious and addicting.

    I love using coconut oil in my cooking, such a versatile and tasty fat.

    You just can’t go wrong with strawberries and chocolate (champagne optional). If you’re a coconut lover, it’s also nice to then dip these in toasted, shredded coconut.
