Recipe for :

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

This is one of the recipes that has been provided by Shirley Cline from San Fransisco. (You can contact Shirley by emailing her - click here). Shirely said:

"I have been using this recipe but before dipping the strawberries, I take a syringe and insert vodka in them. My friends really love them. They are great without the vodka but it gives them that extra ooomph".


24 oz. semisweet chocolate, cut into small pieces
16 oz. white chocolate, cut into small pieces
16 large strawberries, washed and dried very well

  • Place the semi-sweet chocolate in a double boiler over barely simmering water and melt while stirring.
  • Place the white chocolate in a separate double boiler over barely simmering water and melt while stirring.
  • Once the chocolates are melted and smooth, remove from the heat.
  • Line a sheet pan with parchment or waxed paper.
  • Grasp the stem or green leaves of the strawberry and dip into the semisweet chocolate, twisting as it is lifted out. Let the excess chocolate drip off and then place on the parchment paper.
  • Repeat with the rest of the strawberries.
  • Dip a fork in the white chocolate. Hold the fork over the chocolate covered strawberries and quickly shake it back and forth to create lines of white chocolate on the semisweet chocolate.
  • Set the strawberries aside to allow the chocolate to harden, about 30 minutes.

Makes 16
