Chocolate-Covered Strawberries (February 2021)

8 Ounces chocolate chips
2 Teaspoons unsalted butter
1 Pound strawberries

Using a double boiler or bowl over hot water, melt your chocolate chips with the butter. Stir together until smooth.

One at a time, take each strawberry by the stem and leaves, dip into the chocolate as far as you can, shake, tip upside-down, and then set on your drying sheet such as wax or parchment paper.

When you have a sheet filled, place it in the refrigerator to dry the berries for 15-30 minutes.

When chocolate is completely solid, put berries in an airtight container and store in a cool place away from a heat source.


This delectable treat is perfect for February and your special valentine. I  love chatting recipes, cuisine and dining. I’d love to hear from you, especially if you give this recipe a try.
