Valentine’s Day Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
Chocolate dipped anything, let alone Valentine’s Day chocolate dipped strawberries, are a major hit around this house!! We have these lil’bad boys on just about every occasion and the best part is that my sweet lil’5 year old can do all the dipping on her own!
- Melting chocolate chips, chunks or tabs. The colour/flavour is up to you.
- Pink, red or white sprinkles
- Parchment paper
Make sure to wash the strawberries and check for any moldy or rotting ones. Pat dry with a towel. Place a piece of parchment paper onto the cookie sheet or plate.
Microwave – You can then add them to a glass bowl and microwave for 1 minute. Stir and check consistency, you want a smooth melted consistency, if you require more time put them in for another 30 seconds. You don’t want to over cook and burn the chocolate.
Stove Top – If you choose to melt them on a stove you will need a double boiler. If you don’t have a double boiler, you can make one by filling a medium saucepan 3/4 full with water. Then rest a smaller saucepan or a glass bowl inside of it and fill it with your chocolate chips.
- Turn the stove on low heat.
- Stir until a smooth consistency
Add a toothpick to the end of the strawberry and dip it completely into the melted chocolate. Twirl it around to get it completely coated. Put it on the parchment paper covered cookie sheet.
For a festive, fancy touch, add sprinkles or melted chocolate to the top of the chocolate!
Pop into the refrigerator to harden the strawberries. And that’s it….. Valentine’s Day Chocolate Dipped Strawberries!
Serve and Enjoy!!
