How to Make White Chocolate Covered Strawberries
- Line a baking sheet or tray with parchment paper. Wash the strawberries, leaving the stems on.
- Pour the chocolate wafers into a microwave safe bowl, and melt your chocolate in 30 second intervals. Stir well every 30 seconds, until fully melted.
- Dip the strawberries one by one, half way into the melted white chocolate, then set on a parchment paper or wax paper lined baking sheet.
- Immediately top with sprinkles after dipping each berry. Do this right away as the melted chocolate will set quickly.
- Cover, and refrigerate for 15 to 30 minutes, or until ready to serve.
How many strawberries are in a 16 oz container?
On average, you’ll find about 15-20 medium strawberries in a 16 oz container. Be sure to purchase enough to make your desired amount of strawberries!
How do you get chocolate to stick to strawberries?
For best results, you’ll want to let the strawberries come up to nearly room temperature. You’ll also want to take a paper towel and dab them dry, as any moisture will make it hard for the chocolate to bond to the fruit.
The best way to dip is to hold the strawberry by the leaves. This way you can get a nice deep dip without getting your fingers covered in chocolate.
If you find the chocolate becomes too thick, pop it back in the microwave for a few seconds. Dipping in nice melty chocolate is important for an even coat.
What is the best white chocolate for strawberries?
I’ve found that Ghirardelli is one of the highest quality white chocolates that you can get for a reasonable price.
They have white chocolate chips that are specifically for baking, which means they’ll be great for melting and dipping!
Baker’s Baking Chocolate is another good option for a chocolate specifically meant to be melted.
How to store chocolate covered strawberries?
While your white chocolate dipped strawberries will be at their best the day you make them, you can keep them in the fridge for a day or so.
Just be aware that the cool temperature may causing sweating or weeping of the chocolate, and once the chocolate is set you may have better luck taking them out of the fridge and storing at room temperature.
Freezing isn’t recommended unless you want to eat them frozen. The strawberries will become mushy when they thaw.
Popular Variations and Substitutions
- If you don’t like white chocolate as much, feel free to use milk or dark chocolate in addition to or instead of the white chocolate.
- You can also drizzle different kinds of chocolate over what you’ve dipped the strawberries in for some color variation (for example: dip in white chocolate and drizzle with dark chocolate stripes).
- Use a wide variety of sprinkles and toppings to customize your dipped strawberries to your liking. Sprinkles, chopped nuts, and chocolate shavings can all make for delicious additions and beautiful presentation.
