There is something so irresistible about chocolate covered strawberries. With Valentines Day just around the corner, this easy treat is perfect for your special someone. The sweet taste of fresh strawberries coated in rich chocolate tastes too good to be true. In just a few simple steps, with a few simple ingredients, you can have Gourmet Chocolate Covered Strawberries in less than 1 hour!

The Strawberries

The most important ingredient you can buy is good quality strawberries. I usually buy 20oz (2 packages) of these WOW “dreamberry” brand strawberries and it makes all the difference. If you can’t find them, just try to buy organic deep red colored strawberries. Another way to tell if the strawberries will be flavorful, is to give them a sniff before buying. Flavorful strawberries will have a sweet, fragrant scent.

Simply rinse your strawberries and pat them dry before dipping.

Line a large baking sheet with wax paper before moving on.

Next, melt semi-sweet and milk-chocolate morsels over very low heat.

Once the chocolate is completely melted, and has a smooth consistency, turn the burner off.

Gently dip the strawberries individually into the chocolate, rolling to get the chocolate on the back and up toward the top of the strawberry.

Dipping Strawberry

Place the chocolate dipped strawberries onto the baking sheet lined with wax paper.

Once all of the strawberries are dipped, place the baking sheet level in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.

Remove the chilled strawberries from the fridge. Melt 4oz Almond Bark and transfer to a squeeze bottle and make a stripe design over each berry. If you don’t have a squeeze bottle, simply drizzle the melted almond bark with the pointed edge of a spoon over the strawberries.
