These chocolate-covered strawberries are just perfect for the love of your life!
- 12 large strawberries with long stems
- 8 oz. NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking Bar, finely chopped
LINE baking sheet with wax paper. Wash strawberries and pat dry thoroughly with paper towels. Set aside.
HEAT water in a double boiler over medium-high heat until gently boiling; turn off heat. Place 2/3 of chocolate in the top of the double boiler; stir frequently until melted and smooth.
TEST the temperature of the chocolate with a candy thermometer. Bring the chocolate to a target temperature of 110° F. When chocolate reaches 110° F., begin the cooling process as follows.
ADD remaining chocolate to melted chocolate; stir until temperature goes down to 85° F. Heat over low heat until chocolate temperature reaches 90° F. Turn off heat; remove top of double boiler.
HOLD a strawberry by the stem and dip into chocolate allowing excess to drip back into pan. Transfer coated strawberry to prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining strawberries. Allow chocolate to cool. Refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes or until chocolate is set.
Review This Recipe
I love chocolate covered strawberries and this was the most easy recipe that i have found and my family and i enjoyed doing them.
I love this recipe for chocolate and strawberries. It never is a boring recipe.
We make these every summer.Learned how to make them easier thank you. My family also likes to use the white chocolate morsels. Can't wait for strawberries to come back in season.
Anything with chocolate for me is great, but when you add a healthy ingredient like strawberries, I'm in Heaven.
Delicious & Romantic
They are a delicious and healthy way to enjoy dessert, and can easily be the finishing touch to a very romantic dinner,along with a glass of your favorite wine.
No matter the occasion, I always make these delicius treats to accompany my main dessert. For an added punch of flavor, I spinkle them with chocolate sprinkles, chopped nuts, ground chocolate cream filled sandwich cookie crumbs, and on holidays red & green spinkles, pink, green & yellow spinkles, orange & black spinkles...you get the picture.
Easy, delicious and better for you than most desserts. I used a fondue pot to dip strawberries
I made these for a baby shower and they were a "hit" and so, so easy.
I made a dozen strawberries and i couldn't stop eating them!!! This is delicious!
So good and so easy! This doesn't take a lot of time and the results are great. There's always the added benefit of being able to argue that it's a healthy dessert because of the strawberries...so you can indulge in more than just one!
So much fun!
This is a fun and easy recipe even for someone as unorganized in the kitchen as myself! I never had so many people ask me for a recipe before. They are also so so pretty when you drizzle white chocolate on top of them.
All my kids could say was..Mmmmmm! They loved them! My 6 year old ate 3!! And of course she wants one for school tomorrow for snack time! Boy, are her friends going to be jealous! :)
dry the strawberries!
Even a tiny bit of water may change consistency of melted chocolate. You can correct that with oil but the smartest way to cover fruit with chocolate is to make sure the fruit is dry. Children love to make these.
a sweet way to go
The chocolate and the strawberries are a sweet way to go, a romantic pinic for two, especially using two types of chocolate, I even tried peanut butter with it, and you had a bit of the saltness with the sweetness . I loved it
It melts smooth and it is quick.
