  • 16 ounces fresh strawberries
  • 10 ounces chocolate chips semi-sweet, milk chocolate and dark chocolate all work


  • Prepare a baking sheet that's lined with parchment paper.
  • Wash the strawberries to remove any dirt and debris.
  • Pat the strawberries dry using a paper towel. The strawberries will need to be completely dry before dipping.
  • Add the chocolate chips to a microwave-safe bowl. Heat the mixture in 20 second increments, stirring in between until it's silky smooth. If you'd like to add coconut oil to make the chocolate a little softer (see tip above) you can add it here and stir with the chocolate.
  • With each strawberry, pick it up by the leaves and slowly dip it into the chocolate mixture until it almost reaches the top. Rotate the strawberry to make sure all sides are coated. Then, lift the strawberry and gently shake off any excess chocolate.
  • Carefully lay the dipped strawberries on the baking sheet, and repeat for each one.
  • Let the strawberries sit until they are completely dry or place in the refrigerator for 5 minutes to firm up the chocolate.


  • Make sure to read all of the tips in the post above, including the type of chocolate I recommend.
