Chocolate covered strawberries are lifesavers. They're the easiest to throw together when you have last minute parties. You don't need a ton of ingredients, there is no baking involved, and they are super delicious. They also have some great health benefits. I love to make them for football games. I use sprinkles to match up with my team colors, extra chocolate to turn them into footballs, or pretzels for an extra crunch. The possibilities are endless.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Wash the strawberries off in cold water and dry them out by setting them on a paper towel for twenty minutes.
  2. Use a chocolate melter to melt chocolate or use the stovetop.
  3. Dip the strawberries into the chocolate and place them onto a sheet of wax paper. Make sure the strawberries are completely dried off before you add them to the chocolate. If they are wet, the chocolate will clump up.
  4. If you do not have wax paper, use a solid plate.
  5. If you are adding nuts or pretzels, roll the chocolate covered strawberry in the extra ingredients while they're wet.
  6. Use a squeeze tube or the end of a knife to drizzle difference colored chocolate designs over the top. I used a squeeze tube.
  7. Sprinkle the sprinkles on when the strawberry is wet.
  8. Press the chocolate chips into the strawberries.
  9. Just have fun with them!
