This is an easy and uncomplicated recipe. Here I have used strawberries to dip in the chocolate, but you can also use fruits like apple, oranges, banana, pineapple, chickoo or pears. use good quality chocolate. It can be white, milk or dark chocolate.

I have use belgian dark chocolate with 73% cocoa….. and since the chocolate was a tad bitter, I added some fine sugar, but the sugar refused to get dissolve while melting the chocolate!!!

Never mind… We all loved this sweet treat. Few more strawberries recipes on the blog are:

Also use ripe, juicy and sweet strawberries. ensure that the skin is not soft. You can keep the leaves if you want or remove them.

This is one dessert that you can make at home and you don’t need to spend a lot on buying such chocolate desserts from out. You can even dip roasted dry fruits like almonds, cashews and pistachios with chocolate.

How to make chocolate dipped strawberries

1. First chop or break the chocolate and take them in a bowl along with oil. You can either microwave the chocolate or melt them in a double boiler.

Cover 3/4 or fully. If there is no stem, then insert a toothpick in the strawberries and dip them in the chocolate with the help of the toothpick.
