February Recipes - Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Elyse Prestopnik, Reporter


  • 6 ounces of chopped semisweet chocolate 
  • 3 ounces of chopped white chocolate
  • 1 pound of strawberries with stems (about 20) – washed and dried very well



  1. Put the semisweet chocolate and white chocolate in two separate heatproof bowls.
  2. Fill two medium sauce pans with a few inches of water, and then bring them to a simmer over medium heat. 
  3. Turn off the heat, then set the bowls over the water to melt. 
  4. Stir the chocolate until it is smooth.
  5. If you can’t use a stove, you can do the above by putting them in the microwave for one minute, stir it, and then put it back in the microwave for another minute.
  6. Once the chocolates are completely melted, remove it from the heat. 
  7. Line a sheet pan with parchment or waxed paper.
  8. Hold the strawberry by the green part, and then dip it into the dark chocolate. 
  9. Lift it and twist gently, letting any of the excess chocolate fall into the bowl.
  10. Set the strawberry on the parchment paper.
  11. Then repeat 8-10 with the rest of the fruit.
  12. When done, dip a fork into the white chocolate and then drizzle it over the strawberries.
  13. Set the fruit aside, while the chocolate sets. This should take about 30 minutes. 
  14. Enjoy!
