Chocolate dipped strawberries are an icon of romance, decadence, and just all-around deliciousness. Now that strawberries are in season, it’s the perfect time for you to try making these treats at home.
There are a few reasons why you should try chocolate-dipped strawberries yourself:
Ease: Chocolate-dipped strawberries are not rocket science. All you have to do is dip strawberries in chocolate. If you gather some helpful tips beforehand, you can do a beautiful job on your first try.
Price: Chocolate-dipped strawberries can run for a few dollars each if you buy them in a store. Not so if you make them yourself, giving you even more of an excuse to indulge in more than just one.
Wow Factor: Chocolate-dipped strawberries are the perfect impressive touch at a party, get-together, or just a special night at home.
How to Heat: If you use the stove, melt the chocolate in a double boiler. If you use a microwave, microwave the chocolate in short intervals and stir in between.
Use the Right Chocolate: You will want a high-quality chocolate for chocolate-dipped strawberries, preferably one that comes in small chunks (otherwise you will have to cut it up yourself). My personal favorite is our organic dark chocolate. It comes in easy-to-melt coins and produces a smooth, uniform body perfect for dipping.
