These easy chocolate covered strawberries are most popular on Valentine's Day but are perfect for any time of the year or any occasion.
I've never made these before and thought I'd give it a try. Although I do need a little practice on my white chocolate drizzle but that's okay they are a perfect sweet treat.
You could go out and buy chocolate covered strawberries but what fun would that be. It only took me about 30 minutes and I had 28 of these finished and ready to enjoy.
Easy to Make Chocolate Covered Strawberries:
Then I dried each one and placed them on a paper towel.
You want to make sure the strawberries are dry before you dip them. If they are wet the chocolate won't stick.

I used 2 cups of Nestles Milk Chocolate chips, which was more than I needed but I wanted to be safe.
I melted them is a microwave safe bowl on 50% power for a minute at a time stirring between each heating.
In about 4 minutes the chocolate was melted then I did another 30 seconds on high power just to make sure.
Now it was time to dip the strawberries. I grabbed each strawberry by the green stem and dipped it into the chocolate.
Making sure I covered 3/4 of the way up the strawberry with chocolate.
Hold the strawberry over the bowl and let the chocolate drip back into the bowl.
Then I placed the strawberry on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
After all 28 strawberries were dipped I placed the cookie sheet in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes.
I melted the white chocolate the same way in the microwave.
Then with a teaspoon, I drizzled the white chocolate trying to make it swirl. Again I do need some practice with my drizzling.
These easy to make chocolate covered strawberries were a lot of fun. Did I mention that they are the most delicious little sweet treats?
