Chocolate Dipped Strawberries are a tempting, luxury-style treat for any special occasion. Whether it’s Valentine’s Day, a birthday, Mother’s Day, or just because, people love to receive this special sweet treat. They’re pretty expensive to buy, but surprisingly easy (and fun!) to make yourself. This post and video will show you the process step-by-step.
There is something so special about making a homemade gift. Friends and family always appreciate it when you’ve taken the time to make something special from the heart. Chocolate dipped strawberries are scrumptious, gluten free, and can easily be made vegan or dairy free using dark chocolate. Who wouldn’t love to receive a gorgeous box of homemade chocolate dipped strawberries?
In some specialty stores and gourmet markets, a dozen chocolate dipped strawberries will cost you upwards of $50. No need to spend the money when you can make them at home for a quarter of the price! As we approach spring the grocery stores and farmer’s markets will be teeming with luscious red berries; you can even buy the extra large long stemmed berries for a few dollars more.
I have provided three options for decorating your strawberries below– plain milk or dark chocolate, drizzled with white chocolate, and dipped in nuts. You can also dip them in candy sprinkles, chocolate chips or chocolate cookie crumbles. Sprinkle dark chocolate strawberries with a few flakes of sea salt for a sweet-and-salty effect. Use a higher quality chocolate for the best flavor. To make dairy free, vegan strawberries, use dairy free chocolate for dipping. There are many delicious possibilities!
