Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Chocolate Covered Strawberries from A Thousand Crumbs

Valentine’s Day is almost here!  How do you like to celebrate?  A night on the town or perhaps a romantic night at home?  Los Angeles tends to suck the joy out of Valentine’s Day with overcrowded restaurants serving pre-fix menus that are often overpriced and underwhelming.  No thank you!  When it comes to celebrating Valentine’s Day, there is nothing better than a romantic night at home.  It’s so nice to cook a lovely meal, open a nice bottle of wine, and of course there is always dessert!  You could send your loved one chocolate covered strawberries from one of those website delivery services, but have you ever thought about making them at home?  Chocolate covered strawberries are a fun and easy dessert for Valentine’s Day, or any other day for that matter!

Start with some beautiful, ripe, juicy strawberries, your favorite kinds of chocolate, and some festive sprinkles.  Dip, roll, and chill.  That’s it!  Switch up the sprinkles depending on the holiday or event and suddenly you’ve got a festive dessert, no matter the occasion!

I love using dark chocolate and white chocolate for some contrast.  I leave some dipped in plain chocolate, some rolled in sprinkles, and it’s always fun to drizzle a few with the opposite chocolate.  The result is a beautiful, fun, and delicious dessert the whole family can enjoy!  And of course, no one can judge you for sneaking one before their done!

Description

A fun and easy way to celebrate any event, chocolate covered strawberries are always a favorite.  Decorate with different kinds of chocolate, and dip in festive sprinkles for a special treat the whole family can enjoy.


Ingredients

12 large fresh strawberries, rinsed and dried

6oz dark chocolate

6oz white chocolate

Sprinkles (if you want to keep things festive!)


Instructions

Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.  Set aside.

Using two double boilers, melt each chocolate type over medium-low heat, stirring until smooth.  Remove from heat.

Holding each strawberry by its stem, carefully dip in chocolate, and then in desired sprinkle topping.  Or, if you want to drizzle with the opposite chocolate, drizzle with a fork.  Arrange on prepared baking sheet.

Refrigerate strawberries until set, about 20 minutes.  Transfer to an airtight container for storage.  Dipped strawberries only last a few days, so enjoy them while you can!


Notes

Paper plates are an easy way to keep your sprinkles corralled while dipping.  They also make clean up a breeze!
