Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Chocolate covered strawberries are one of the easiest and most elegant desserts to prepare. The combination of sweet strawberries and rich chocolate is irresistible. They are a perfect treat for Valentine's day, weddings, birthdays, or any other special occasion.

I remember the first time I made chocolate covered strawberries for my boyfriend. It was our first Valentine's day together, and I wanted to surprise him with something special. I went to the grocery store, picked up some fresh strawberries and high-quality chocolate, and got to work. The result was amazing, and he loved them! Ever since then, I have been making them for all our special occasions.


  • 1 pound of fresh strawberries, washed and dried
  • 8 ounces of high-quality dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil (optional)
  • Toppings of your choice (chopped nuts, sprinkles, shredded coconut, etc.)

Cooking Instructions

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate and coconut oil (if using) in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval until fully melted.
  3. Hold the strawberries by the stem and dip them into the melted chocolate, letting the excess chocolate drip off.
  4. Place the chocolate-covered strawberries on the prepared baking sheet, and sprinkle with toppings of your choice.
  5. Place the baking sheet in the fridge for 10-15 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.
  6. Serve and enjoy!
