How do you get chocolate to stick to strawberries?

Using a spoon, drizzle the melted chocolate onto 2 strawberries, covering completely except for the stem. Lay on a baking sheet to harden. It will not take long to “set” because the strawberries were chilled. Repeat steps for all the colors you’d like to add. 

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 3 days until ready to serve. It would be better if you ate them closer to when you actually made them though – full disclosure! ENJOY!!

What is the best chocolate to melt?

How far in advance can you make chocolate covered strawberries?

This recipe can be kept in the refrigerator for several days when stored properly. I wouldn’t go more than 2 or 3 days. Try to eat them within 48 hours.

Cover them in wax paper and store them in an airtight container so that the strawberries won’t go bad.

Are chocolate chips good for melting?

It is not the preferred method. You should absolutely consider the melting wafers instead. BUT if you have to make this recipe and only have chocolate chips on hand… run with it.
