Whenever I goto any nice bakery/chocolate store, this is my favorite snack (If I can call it so n STOP after eating just 1) and always thanked the person whoever created it (By the way till yesterday I didnt even knew who actually created it)
Although I love them but never thought of making them as they always looked so beautiful and intricately decorated that I believed it will be pretty tough to make them at home.
But when you have some nice baking chocolate + fresh strawberries + a devilish sweet tooth mind what do u do ??? 😉 So here’s the recipe and the pic above is the outcome, Do Make SURE that the strawberries are properly clean of any dirt/grit and also DRY (Cause you cannot get a smooth chocolate cover if there is any water on strawberry).
Also, I’m inserting toothpicks n turning them into Pops which are easier to coat/hold/eat.
WARNING: There’s only 1 tough part in this whole process and that is waiting for them to set in the fridge, I don’t know where 2 strawberries disappeared while in the fridge ;))
FYI: “Chocolate covered Strawberry” was created in 1960s by Lorraine Lorusso from Chicago for Stop N’ Shop.

- Now place them in the fridge for an hour for the chocolate to set on them.
- Once the chocolate is set, take out the strawberries from fridge.
- Drizzle the coated strawberries with chocolate syrup(I’m using the syrup bottle directly) and keep in the fridge for another 15 minutes for everything to set.
