  • 1 pound strawberries
  • 4 ounces chocolate, chopped
  • optional: sprinkles for decoration


  1. Wash strawberries and dry well with paper towels. Gently pull back leaves as you dry them.
  2. Microwave chocolate on high for 1 minute and stir until smooth. If it’s not melted yet, microwave for additional 30 second increments, stirring each time.
  3. If hand-dipping: Line a tray with parchment paper. Hold each strawberry by the leaves, dip in chocolate, and place on the tray. Sprinkle with decorations immediately after each strawberry is dipped.
  4. If skewer-dipping: Skewer each strawberry near the base. Hold by the skewer, dip in chocolate, and stand the skewer up in a piece of foam. Sprinkle with decorations immediately after each strawberry is dipped.
  5. Transfer strawberries to fridge for 30 minutes to help chocolate harden.
  6. Eat the same day you make them!
