Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Tips
Even though these tasty strawberries have just three ingredients, here are some tips that will help you make perfect strawberries every single time.
Use Large Strawberries
Go through your basket of strawberries and pick out the largest ones. If strawberries aren’t in season, this might be kinda tough. Just pick out the biggest ones. They will be easier to cover in chocolate (and a lot more fun to eat).
Use Parchment Paper
As the chocolate hardens, it sticks, so make sure you place the strawberries on a non-stick surface. Parchment paper or a silicone baking mat both work great.
Use A Piping Bag to Add Decorations
This is the fun part! Use a piping bag to add a little drizzle of chocolate on top in lovely patterns. You could even sprinkle some sea salt flakes on top to enhance the flavor even more.
Here’s what you’ll need from the store before you make this recipe. Read through the list of ingredients below. We will also share any swaps/substitutions you can make.
- Chocolate Chips: We love Lily’s brand chocolate chips because they are sweetened with erythritol.
- MCT Oil: You’ll use this to help melt the chocolate chips. Plus it adds some healthy fats to the strawberries.
- Strawberries: Use the freshest and largest strawberries you can find.
