How To Make Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Here’s a handy guide showing different types of chocolate covered strawberries.

These are not only an impressive (and romantic) treat, they are so easy to make. Don’t miss the big list of tips shared at the bottom (underneath the recipes).


6 ounces of dark chocolate
3 tablespoons half and half cream
1/2 tablespoon of butter (unsalted)
20 large strawberries

Optional: Drizzle with melted white chocolate for an impressive display.

24 large strawberries
2 cups white chocolate chips
1 tablespoon shortening

Optional Drizzle:

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon shortening

20 large strawberries
8 ounces white chocolate candy coating (4 2-oz squares)
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

How impressive are these, and yet they are so easy! Use the same ingredients as the double dipped above but increase the semi-sweet chips to two cups, the difference will be the dipping method. You’ll also want to use large berries that have good length to them for the best “tuxedo” effect.
