chocolate covered strawberries


Isn't this the best spring/summer treat? I mean besides fried clams, greasy hamburgers, and ice cream? OK, they're all the best really. Who doesn't love a good chocolate covered strawberry? And with spring here that means the jumbo sized strawberries are in abundance! They are truly perfect for dipping in chocolate. Every year I dip strawberries in high quality dark chocolate and then have one or four with ice cold champagne. What a good combo!
I prefer mine in a dark chocolate. You? Pineapple is also good dipped in chocolate. Marshmallows too, apples, pears, grapes (the dark ones are really good), blueberries are hard to dip, I just get all kinds of messy trying to fish out my blueberries--not a good scene.


And how cute is this one?

  1. I love chocolate-covered strawberries! The best I ever had were the ones waiting for my husband and I on our honeymoon at the Four Seasons... served with champagne, of course. Yours looks scrumptious :).

  4. This is definitely one of my most favorite desserts! Pineapple sounds fantastic too. The plantation down the road is having you pick strawberries right now...I'm thinking these might be a required dessert next weekend. Have a good evening

  6. My favorite part of chocolate covered strawberries is when I convince myself of all of their health benefits. And then eat a whole quart of them. So much fun. Plus sprinkles make most things in life better...these are so cute! But I'm kind of surprised that you didn't dip them in salt. :P

  7. I'm trying to figure out if there's a successful way to dip a blueberry. A fork? A spork? Strawberries make much more sense. Yum!

  12. I love making chocolate covered strawberries. Word to the wise (and I had to learn this the hard way): make sure the berries are dry before dipping otherwise the chocolate doesn't stick. Love the idea of putting sprinkles on top!!

  22. I have been going nuts for strawberries lately. I never even think to dip them in anything but sugar. Thanks for the reminder that it would be so easy and fun, and tasty, to cover them in chocolate.
