What is there not to love about them?


They make such elegant little additions to any party or when entertaining and they couldn’t be any easier to make if you tried! I guess that’s why I make chocolate covered strawberries as often as possible!

For my chocolate covered strawberries, I like to use absolutely the best tasting, juiciest, most delicious strawberries. It makes all the difference in the final result to me.

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!

  1. What kind of coconut oil do you prefer??

    • 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.

  2. These look so luscious! But, where do you find good strawberries this time of year? Thanks.

  3. 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.

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

  5. Chocolate covered strawberries are one of my top desserts, so classy and elegant, while also tasting so good! Perfect week for them 🙂

  6. Great idea to use the fondue pot! Chocolate covered strawberries are irresistible!

  7. Chocolate and strawberry…What’s not to love?

  8. 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.

  9. Yes please! Such an easy, fun, dessert!

  10. When using a fondu pot what setting do you use?

  11. Love this recipe, but am little hesitant about freezing them. Do the strawberries not become a little mushy? Also, to respond to the reader who noted the expense of coconut oil for only 2 tsp. I am now using organic coconut oil as the best skin moisturizer ever. It is especially wonderful for chapped lips and dry hands and elbows. Just FYI.

    • The 15 minutes in the freezer is just long enough to set the chocolate, not freeze the fruit. Thanks for the fondue tip , I wonder if a slow cooker would also work.

  12. The bananas also taste yummy with this recipe!

  13. Why use coconut oil? Just wondering because I have never done that. I’m sure it is for a good reason and would like to know why.

  14. What a wonderful recipe, I enjoyed it and more to meet. Your website has many good recipes, congratulations for the work.
