With Valentine's Day next week and strawberry season on the distant horizon, I have had chocolate covered strawberries on the brain recently. This sweet treat combines two of my favorite foods, so I can't help but eat them all in one sitting whenever I make a batch. The best part about chocolate covered strawberries is that they are so easy to make! So, if you are like me and have this yummy dessert on the brain, keep reading to learn an easy way to make chocolate covered strawberries- in as little as 5 minutes!
The only two things you need to make chocolate covered strawberries is, you guessed it, chocolate and strawberries. I typically use a bag of semi sweet chocolate chips, but you can use whatever chocolate you like best, whether it be a chocolate bar or the bakers chocolate you find on the baking aisle.
I typically make this recipe using 2 lbs of strawberries and 1 bag of semisweet chocolate chips. The last time that I used this recipe, I made 39 chocolate covered strawberries, but your end result may be different depending on how many strawberries fit in the container you bought.
All you have to do to make this recipe is melt the chocolate and dip the strawberries. That's it! Super simple right? The one thing you need to keep in mind is not burning or over cooking your chocolate. I put my chocolate chips in a microwave save container for 30 seconds at a time, stirring between each 30 second spurts. I found the more I microwave the chocolate, the thicker and harder to work with it became.
Besides that, these chocolate covered strawberries are so easy to make! If you make your own chocolate covered strawberries this Valentine's Day, make sure to let me know how they turn out.
