There's just something magical about chocolate covered strawberries and raspberries! So silky and velvety on the outside - and bright, juicy and bursting with flavor on the inside. Not only perfect to look at, but perfect with every bite - a party in your mouth!
And so stinking easy to make! All it takes is some perfect strawberries, GOOD quality chocolate - be it your favorite dark, semi-sweet, milk or white chocolate, and as quickly as you can melt the chocolate, you're in business! This really isn't so much a recipe as it is a process, but once you know the secrets, you'll be impressing your friends and family with beautiful chocolate double-dipped strawberries too.
These are a natural for Valentine's Day, but you've seen them at all kinds of special events - pastel chocolate strawberries for baby showers and weddings (Tuxedo & Wedding Dress Strawberries), dark chocolate with kelly green chocolate drizzles for St. Patrick's Day, dunked in orange white chocolate for Easter Strawberry Carrots, and even dipped in dark chocolate and laced like footballs for football parties. They truly are a year around treat, and just so darn much fun to make and eat!
The possibilities are endless...all it takes is a little bit of time and creativity. If you prefer sprinkles, there are so many fun holiday sprinkles and sparkling sugars that you can use. Or after dipping in smooth warm chocolate, give your berries a quick roll in grated coconut, toffee pieces, chocolate curls, cookie crumbles, crushed nuts, mini M&M's...see what I mean?
The fresh spring strawberries are starting to show up now - juicy red, plump and firm - with beautiful green leaves and stems. You'll be dipping, double-dipping, swirling and twirling, and sprinkling before you know it! And there's always lots of "ooohs and aaaahs" when these Chocolate Double-Dipped Strawberries show up - whether it's for a crowd, or just a wonderful quiet party for two....
