Hello Friends! I don’t know if there’s a dessert that screams Valentine’s Day more than chocolate covered strawberries do! They couldn’t be easier to make or more delicious to eat, and would make the perfect little edible gift this Valentine’s Day, since it’s less than a week away now!
YOU WILL NEED
Melted chocolate (I used milk chocolate)
Chopped walnuts (or other goodies to coat the strawberries!)
First, line a baking sheet with wax paper or parchment paper (you will need this later to lay the strawberries on). Next, melt the chocolate in a heat proof bowl over a pot of simmering water (you can also do this in the microwave, of course, I just always seem to burn the chocolate when I use my microwave! I think it might be a good idea for me to look at something like this Best Microwave Australia 2021 guide to look for a new microwave, because at this point I’m not sure if it’s me or the microwave that’s causing me to burn the chocolate. If you want to go the extra mile, you could even use a chocolate melter!), pour it into a small bowl, and let it cool for a minute or two. Wash and dry your strawberries (I like to leave the leaves on, I just think it looks prettier) and chop the walnuts (you could also use almonds, hazelnuts, sprinkles, melted white chocolate, or anything else you can think of!) then dip them into the melted chocolate, letting the excess chocolate drip off, then dipping them into the chopped walnuts. Lay them on the prepared wax or parchment paper and let them set completely. To package them, place each strawberry into a mini paper muffin liner and place them all into a small box. Wrap with a big bow and you have the perfect little edible Valentine’s gift! (…. or you could always eat them yourself if it’s too tempting!)
