How to Make Decadent Christmas Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Step 1: Gather Your Essentials

Before we dive into the chocolatey goodness, let’s make sure we have everything we need to create these Christmas delights:


  • Fresh strawberries (the ripest you can find)
  • High-quality melting chocolate or chocolate chips (dark, milk, or white—your choice!)
  • Toppings: crushed candy canes, chopped nuts, festive sprinkles, or edible glitter (get creative!)
  • Parchment paper (for easy cleanup)
  • A microwave-safe bowl or a double boiler
  • A baking sheet or tray

Always choose high-quality chocolate for this recipe

Step 2: Prep the Strawberries

Now that we’ve got our ingredients and tools in place, let’s prepare the star of the show—the strawberries!

  1. Wash and Dry: Start by gently rinsing the strawberries under cool water. Pat them dry with a paper towel or kitchen towel. It’s essential to ensure they’re completely dry to help the chocolate adhere properly.
  2. Remove Leaves: Carefully remove the green leaves and stems from each strawberry, leaving the sweet, juicy center intact. These will serve as our delicious canvas.

Step 3: Melt the Chocolate

Here’s where the magic happens—the chocolatey transformation!

  • Microwave Method: If you’re using a microwave, place the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and heat it in short, 15-30 second bursts, stirring between each interval. Be sure not to overheat; we want silky-smooth, not scorched, chocolate.
  • Double Boiler Method: For those who prefer a more controlled approach, use a double boiler. Fill the bottom pot with water and bring it to a gentle simmer. Place the chocolate in the top pot, ensuring it doesn’t touch the water. Stir until it melts into velvety goodness.

Step 4: Dip and Decorate

Now comes the fun part—dipping and decorating your Christmas chocolate covered strawberries!

  1. Holding the Strawberry: Hold the strawberry by its green stem (or use a toothpick if you prefer). Dip it into the melted chocolate, making sure to cover it entirely. Let any excess chocolate drip off.
  2. Add Festive Flair: While the chocolate is still gooey, sprinkle your chosen toppings over the strawberry. Crushed candy canes for a minty twist, chopped nuts for crunch, festive sprinkles for whimsy, or edible glitter for a touch of magic—the possibilities are endless!
  3. Set on Parchment: Place your adorned strawberry on a parchment-lined baking sheet or tray. This will prevent them from sticking and make cleanup a breeze.

Step 5: Let Them Set

Allow your Christmas chocolate covered strawberries to set and harden. You can either leave them at room temperature or pop them in the fridge for quicker results. This is the perfect time to whip up some hot cocoa or mulled wine to savor alongside your creations.

Christmas Flavor Combinations: Get Creative!

Now that we’ve mastered the art of making Christmas chocolate covered strawberries, let’s explore some flavor combinations that will elevate your holiday experience:

  • Minty Fresh: Dip your strawberries in dark chocolate and sprinkle them with crushed peppermint candies. The cool minty notes will add a refreshing twist to the sweetness.
  • Nutty Bliss: Coat your strawberries in milk chocolate and roll them in chopped almonds or hazelnuts. The nutty crunch will complement the creamy chocolate beautifully.
  • Winter Wonderland: Opt for white chocolate and dust your strawberries with edible glitter or silver sprinkles. They’ll look like they’ve been kissed by frost!
  • Caramel Drizzle: After dipping in milk chocolate, drizzle warm caramel over the strawberries. The combination of chocolate and caramel is a match made in holiday heaven.
  • Fruity Fusion: Add a burst of color and flavor by dipping your strawberries in a mix of white and dark chocolate. Then, drizzle with melted red and green chocolate for a festive touch.
