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!
