I love chocolate covered strawberries anytime, anywhere! Seriously, it could be for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, snack, whatever! Gimme all the chocolate covered strawberries!
There are some techniques and tricks to make sure they come out just perfect though!
1- After rinsing your strawberries let them reach room temperature.
2- Dry the berries VERY well with paper towels to try to remove all excess water and moisture.
3- When you put them to “set” in the fridge, only leave them in just long enough to set and no more, typically takes about 10-15 minutes.
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
- 1 10 oz bag of allergy friendly chocolate chips
- 1 tsp grapeseed oil, other oil, or shortening
- 2 1 lb containers of fresh whole strawberries
Rinse strawberries, and let sit to room temperature. Using a paper towel, soak up any extra water on all strawberries so that their exterior is very dry. Using a double boiler or microwave on :30 increments, stirring each time in-between, melt your chocolate with the oil. Next, dip your strawberries one by one, and set them on a wax paper covered cookie sheet. Let set in fridge for about 10-15 minutes and remove as soon as the chocolate is set up.
