How To Make Chocolate Covered Strawberries

There is nothing more fun than to make your sweetheart a wonderful surprise gift of home made chocolate covered strawberries as a gift for a special occasion, such as Valentine's Day, or simply just to brighten their day. Not to mention that one of the main benefits to making chocolate covered strawberries yourself -- aside from the gratitude of your thoughtfulness, that is -- is that you can avoid the ridiculous price many specialty stores put on their "gourmet" chocolate dipped strawberries.

In order to begin, you will need to do a quick Internet search for a recipe that will tell you how to make your own homemade chocolate dipped strawberries. Once you have located a recipe, then you need to purchase your ingredients.

You will find all the ingredients you need for the process of making chocolate covered strawberries at your local grocery store. Of course you need the strawberries and the chocolate -- as for the chocolate, you should be as creative as you like here, for instance, you can purchase dark chocolate, white chocolate or milk chocolate and you can really add some flair by decorating your luscious dipped fruit with sprinkles. Once you are home with your ingredients, the fun and easy process of making chocolate covered strawberries is about to begin.

To start making your chocolate covered strawberries, you need to first prepare the chocolate by melting it -- this can happen either on the stove with a double boiler or in the microwave. Then, in true fondue style, you will take each strawberry one by one and dip them into the melted chocolate mixture. The amount of chocolate you put on each strawberry is totally up to you, and of course to the taste of your special someone. The best way to dip your strawberries is to use forks that are made for a fondue set so as not to bruise the fruit or make it too mushy. After you have the desired amount of chocolate on the strawberry, then place it on a pan lined with wax paper to cool, and also for the chocolate to harden. It is at this time that you should decorate it if you so desire.

Once your strawberries have cooled, you can box them up with a nice ribbon to complete your surprise. That's it. As you can see, it is very easy making chocolate covered strawberries at home, and will be well worth the smile on the recipient's face.
