Chocolate covered Strawberries

Valentine’s Day and I didn’t cook anything special this year because of the torn Rota-tor cuff. Still wanted to do something special for him. I had fresh strawberries and some chocolate in the refrigerator. Asked my 6 year old if he wants to help me to make Chocolate covered strawberries and he was on board instantly. He gave me the ideas of decorating it to me too. This decoration could have been better but the time constraint and limited ingredients we could achieve this yummies.

  1. Strawberries: 10-12
  2. Chocolate: 1 Milk chocolate bar
  3. Milk/ cream: 2 Tspn
  4. Butter: ½ Tspn
  5. Tooth picks: 12


  1. Wash, drain and pat dry the strawberries.
  2. Melt the chocolate by using the double boiler method i.e. take a steel pan full of water. Boil the water and put a glass bowl on it. Put chocolate in the glass bowl and start to melt by stirring occasionally.
  3. While it is melting in the bowl add a tea spoon of milk or cream and butter for glaze.
  4. Take the strawberry. Do not take the stem off. Put a tooth pick from the stem side and then dip the strawberry in the melted chocolate.
  5. Put it on a silver foil or butter paper lined plate.
  6. You may want to drizzle melted white chocolate on it.
  7. Put it in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours and serve it.
  8. This is a perfect project during the summer break. Kids love to make it. However, they would need your help when you are melting the chocolate. They can melt the chocolate in the microwave too, which is little safe.

Hope you all love it. Enjoy this easy and quick recipe which can be perfect for any party.
