Try these sweet chocolate covered berries! Why pay big bucks for chocolate dipped berries when you can easily make this at home?

  1. Wash and dry berries. Place in the refrigerator. (This should be done at least a few hours before hand if you have time.)
  2. Place chocolate of your choice in a microwave safe bowl.
  3. Microwave chocolate for 1 minute then stir vigorously. If it is still chunky, give it 10 more seconds in the microwave.
  4. Line a baking sheet with wax or parchment paper.
  5. Carefully holding the stem, dip, roll, and drizzle the melted chocolate over your berries until they are covered.
  6. Place berries on parchment covered sheet pan. (Optional-At this point you would sprinkle them with toppings before the chocolate hardens.
  7. Continue until all the berries are coated in chocolate.
  8. Optional-Melt a different type of chocolate in the microwave using the same method as before. When the chocolate is liquefied, spoon it into a plastic baggie and cut off a small corner. You can easily drizzle the berries with the chocolate in a pretty pattern. (I just happened to only have dark chocolate today.)
  9. Place berries in the refrigerator until chocolate hardens, about 10 minutes.

Today I used dark chocolate chips, but I have used everything from leftover chocolate Santas and Easter Bunnies chopped up into pieces. It all melts the same! This is mid-stir after 1 minute in the microwave.

Keep stirring! If it doesn’t get smooth, microwave for 10 more seconds and stir again.

Wash, dry, and refrigerate in advance so the chocolate adheres better.

Hold carefully by the stem. Spooning the chocolate over the top of the berry also works great!

Sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs, coconut, or sprinkle immediately so they can stick to the berries.

When all the berries are covered you can make them extra fancy by drizzling them with a different type of chocolate. I thought I had white chocolate today, but I was wrong. They are still delicious!
