🍴Instructions

Step One: melt and dip

Prepare the strawberries. Wash the strawberries and then dry them off. Let them sit at room temperature so they will be ready to dip.

Melt the white candy melts and chocolate chips. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the white candy melts according to package directions. In a separate bowl, combine the chocolate chips and shortening and microwave on low for 30 seconds. Stir until smooth.

Step Two

There are two ways to dip the strawberries into the chocolate. You can hold it by the green top or you can use a skewer. If you want, you can coat it fully in chocolate or leave red “shoulders”. After coating, dip half of the strawberries into sprinkles or sprinkle them on top. With the other half, dip it partially into white candy melts and then add sprinkles.

Let them set up. Put the strawberries on parchment paper and let them cool until the chocolate hardens.

🥫 Storage instructions

Store in the fridge. If you’re not going to eat them all within a day, it’s best to store them in the fridge.

Freezing strawberries can change their texture and make them less enjoyable.

Keep them covered, but not sealed tight. I usually cover with plastic wrap and poke a few holes.

🔍 FAQs

Can I use dark chocolate instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips?

Yes! It’s delicious, but it doesn’t melt as smoothly.

Do I need to use candy melts?

No, you don’t need to use candy melts. You can just use white chocolate chips or skip the white altogether.

👩🏻‍🍳 Expert tips

  • Use large strawberries. Look for ones that are relatively the same size.
  • Allow strawberries to come to room temperature before dipping. Cold berries will “sweat” as they warm up.
