Easy Chocolate Covered Strawberries

  • Yield: one dozen 1x


  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 12 strawberries


  1. Wash strawberries thoroughly and pat dry. Make sure there is no condensation or any wet spots on the berry prior to dipping, otherwise, the chocolate will get a little wonky and “seize up”.
  2. Melt chocolate chips and shortening in a double boiler over low heat until thoroughly melted. Hold strawberries by leaves and dip into chocolate. Lightly shake and lay on wax paper-lined baking sheet.
  3. Melt white chocolate chips in double boiler over low heat until melted, then drizzle over chocolate-covered strawberries with a fork or small spatula.
  4. Refrigerate until hardened.
