Ingredients

Scale

Chocolate Covered Strawberries:

  • 2 lbs fresh strawberries
  • 1270 gram bag of milk or dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil

Pink Chocolate Drizzle:

  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tsp coconut oil
  • pink food colouring

Instructions

  1. Wash the strawberries (leave the stems on). Pat dry with a paper towel and set aside.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper. Set aside.
  3. Add the dark or milk chocolate chips and 1 tsp of coconut oil to a microwave-safe bowl.
  4. Microwave the chocolate on medium heat for 30 seconds, then stir. Microwave for 30 more seconds, and stir. Repeat until the chocolate is melted. Mix well.
  5. Hold a strawberry by the stem, then dip it into the melted chocolate. Gently shake off any excess chocolate.
  6. Lay the dipped strawberries on the parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  7. Repeat until all of the strawberries are dipped.
  8. In another microwave-safe bowl, melt the white chocolate chips and 1/2 tsp coconut oil (same method as above…medium heat at 30 second intervals).
  9. Once the white chocolate has melted, stir in a drop or two of red food colouring. Mix well.
  10. Put the warm pink chocolate into a small ziplock bag, then cut a tiny bit from one of the bottom corners of the bag.
  11. Gently squeeze the ziplock bag and drizzle the pink chocolate over the chocolate covered strawberries. The drizzle doesn’t have to be perfect!
  12. Let the strawberries set for at least 30 minutes before eating or packaging them up. If you want them to set quicker, place the tray of finished strawberries in the fridge.
