Although chocolate covered strawberries are litterally one of the easiest and cheapest desserts to make, they appear way fancier than they really are. I think it’s simply because they look so gorgeous dipped in chocolate that it makes them seem impressive.
One batch of these honestly takes me 20 minutes to make and they look professional! Plus, it only cost me about $5 to make a big batch! Double score!
It’s also fun and easy to make a strawberry bouquet as a gift for Mother’s Day or other special occasion. See directions below for making a Chocolate Strawberry Bouquet!

Yields about 30 strawberries
1 (12 oz) package semi-sweet OR milk chocolate chips
2 lbs strawberries, stems attached
1/2 cup while chocolate
1/2 cup crushed nuts (pecans, almonds or pistachios)
1/2 cup coconut
Start by washing the strawberries and then drying them VERY well. It’s so important to dry the strawberries well because, as you may know, chocolate and water do not work well together! If the strawberries are the least bit wet the chocolate will not stick!
Next pour the milk chocolate chips and white chocolate chips into their own microwaveable bowls.
Pour the nuts and coconut onto their own small plates. Line a sheet pan with parchment or waxed paper.
Microwave the milk chocolate for 30 seconds intervals, removing and stirring at each 30 second interval, until the chocolate has melted. Repeat with the white chocolate chips until they are melted. Stir often, making sure not to burn the chocolate!
Chill the strawberries until the chocolate sets, about 15 minutes.
