Tips For Making The Best Homemade Chocolate Covered Strawberries

  • You can make these strawberries 24-48 hours in advance. Simply leave the chocolate covered strawberries in the fridge in an airtight container until you are ready to enjoy them.
  • Make the chocolate-covered strawberries at least 2-3 hours before you are ready to enjoy them. This gives the chocolate time to harden.
  • Feel free to use any toppings you like! You can also make plain chocolate-covered strawberries and dip them in melted brie, whipped cream, caramel sauce, whatever you like!
  • Store strawberries in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
