Chocolate Strawberries with Sprinkles
Chocolate Strawberries with colorful sprinkles make a delicious sweet treat.
Use sprinkles to match your party theme. There are all different colors and types of sprinkles you can select from. You can use
sugar crystals, shape sprinkles or holiday sprinkles or even crushed candies or nuts. Arrange your chocolate dipped strawberries on a platter or in small
paper candy cups.
Strawberries with green top if possible (easy to hold it by this and dip)
White Chocolate Bark or Bakers
Various Candy Sprinkles
Wax paper or parchment paper
Small Microwave Safe Bowl or Wilton Chocolate Melter
Silicone Brush or Small spoon
- Use a chocolate melter if you have one.
- If you don't have one you can melt chocolate in microwave safe container.
Since microwaves vary, you will have to adjust the time to your microwave. Start with 30 seconds, stir well with wooden spoon, add 15 seconds as needed.
Heat until just melted. Chocolate should be warm not hot. Chocolate scorches very easily and will taste burnt if heated too long.
- Brush chocolate evenly with silicone pastry brush or spoon chocolate on top of strawberry and turn to let excess drip.
- Place strawberry on waxed or parchment paper and sprinkle immediately as you cover it with chocolate. You have to sprinkle the strawberries as they are dipped.
Let set and harden. For quicker results and a harder coat, place in refrigerator for 30 min.
Drizzled with Dark Chocolate
We just microwaved a cube of chocolate since it requires only a small amount. Using a fork, tap or gently shake so chocolate drizzles on the strawberry.
We added the chocolate after the white chocolate hardened.
TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS
Dark Chocolate Strawberries are also tasty but the sprinkles show up a lot more on the white chocolate
These can be prepared ahead of time and refrigerated until use
This pot made this so much easier! I'd definitely recommend getting this Wilton Chocolate Melting Pot
if you enjoy dipping pretzels, strawberries and make cake pops. The metal portion or the pot will get hot so adult needs to be constantly monitoring if children
Do not get any water in your melted chocolate, this will ruin it.
Extra chocolate? Dip other fruit such as blackberries, or even dried fruit like apricots. You can also
make some easy chocolate bark. Pour onto parchment paper for easy removal and add nuts, dried fruit like cranberries, mini m and m's.
