Heart-Shaped Chocolate Covered Strawberries Recipe
Pint of Strawberries
Milk Chocolate Chips
White Chocolate Chips, Optional for drizzle
- Pull the stem off and slice in half down the middle and use a small knife to cut out the middle of each half (top right-hand corner).
- Stick a toothpick through each half to attach them.
- Be sure your strawberries are pretty dry so that the marshmallow will stick to the berry easier. You can use a paper towel to do this.
- Use a butter knife, small knife or spoon to scoop and spread marshmallow into each half.
- Add chocolate chips to a small bowl and microwave for 30 seconds at a time to melt the chips. You can also add a small amount of oil to your chips if you would like a smoother texture. I added a dab of coconut oil.
- Dollop the chocolate onto the strawberries and marshmallow.
- Carefully use a small knife or spoon to spread the chocolate so that it pours over the sides and into the creases so that the strawberries will be “stuck” together when the chocolate hardens.
- Once the red chocolate hardens, pick up chocolate covered strawberry and shake off excess.
