How to Make Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Chocolate Covered Strawberries make such a special handmade gift for someone you love. They are perfect for holidays such as Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day, parties and showers and for giving to a close friend. They certainly make an impressive statement, yet they are so simple to make!

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 the chocolate for dipping the strawberries. This easy method is great for making these anytime the you want them!

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. It’s a game changer for a routine chocolate dipper like me. These are also so much fun to make in the fondue pot with your family or a gathering of close friends!

    1. 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.

      1. I think this is a great recipe. I use organic coconut oil as well. I like the hint of coconut flavor it gives off.

  1. 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.

    1. Hi Nancy, That threw me for a second too but realized it was milk chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips. Glad I wasn’t alone on that.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    1. 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.

  4. 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.

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

  6. Robyn, I love your recipes. I make these and if I have to set the chocolate I find that the refrigerator for a just a few minutes does the trick. Also, these are best when eaten right away which doesn’t seem to be a problem in my house. My favorite is milk chocolate. Have you ever made them with white chocolate?

  7. Ooh, this sounds perfect for Valentine’s! Your recipe states you can freeze for up to three months. Are they not mushy afterwards???

  8. Thanks for the recipe I made chocolate covered and white chocolate strawberries for my sweetheart on Mother’s Day I drizzled white chocolate on the chocolate  strawberries to make them look nice. Thanks for the instructions.
