Not only delicious, but beautiful and easy!! I always forget how much I love these, especially the white chocolate version. I used white chocolate chips, that's what I had on hand and mixed them with a little shortening. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I need to remember to make these more often.
We loved these! I used fresh strawberries from our garden. I didn't use white chocolate because I didn't have any, so I just used the chocolate chips. I rolled some of them in crushed pecans. Delicious! I will definitely be making these again!!!
When you make chocolate covered strawberries make sure that you use the freshest berries you can find. Also, as much as I love native berries, they tend to be softer, so use the commercial ones; they will hold up better.
Lavender Lynn's DD here. I slaved over the stove for these all last night for the sake of bribing my fellow drama club members [from my school] to vote for me for the position of chef. Today, I WON! Everyone was very fond of them. I actually used a double boiler to melt them, and I used white baking chocolate instead of wafers because my grocer didn't carry them. >:[ But still, decadent and delicious. Thank you!
My DD made these strawberries for a 4th of July picnic and they went quickly. She used white chocolate chips instead of the wafers and refrigerated overnight. The only problem was the chocolate pulled away from the strawberries so I would not recommend leaving them in the fridge for a long period of time. So pretty and tastes so very good!
I haven't made them yet but I sure will. Hubby will be back on Tuesday, after a 1 yr deployment. These are going to be waiting for him!
I made these for Christmas (they are in season here in NZ at this time) and they were absolutely the hit of the menu! Many thanks for this recipe.
This is the greatest. Easy to make and they make a lovely presentation. If I could give more stars to your photographs I would. I have made copies in color and added them to my recipe file. I am curious. One star and no explanation from a member !!! Hope you ignore it.
This is the perfect recipe for Chocolate covered strawberries, your directions were great,and we found them to be quite yummy, and of course beautiful to look at--Thanks so much, Marg!--PeggyLynn
