How do you make Chocolate Covered Strawberries…

  3. Lay out the wax paper 
  4. Melt the chocolate melts in a small to medium-sized bowl.
  5. Dip the strawberries into the melted chocolate until about half of the strawberry is submerged

Should you keep chocolate-covered strawberries in the fridge?

You can store chocolate-covered strawberries in the refrigerator, but you will risk the colored chocolate turning a chalky color.  Instead, store the strawberries covered and in a cool place like the basement or garage. It’s really best to make the strawberries the day of serving them. 

How can you avoid Chocolate Covered Strawberries from sweating?

The best way to prevent chocolate-covered strawberries from sweating is to serve them within the day of preparing them. The longer that you store the strawberries, the longer you’ll run the risk of the strawberries sweating. You can line the bottom of your storage container with a paper towel to help soak up any extra moisture.

  • glass microwave proof bowl
  • wax paper


  • 24 Strawberries rinsed and dried
  • 12 oz. candy melts royal blue or dark blue candy melts
  • 3 oz. White star sprinkles – or red white and blue sprinkles of your choice


  • Melt the chocolate melts
  • *I like to place the melts into a microwave-proof glass bowl and microwave it for 1 minute, stir and place back into the microwave for 30 more seconds
  • Dip strawberries halfway into the chocolate – leaving some red of the strawberry exposed
  • Hold the strawberry over the bowl, allowing the excess chocolate to drip off
  • Place the strawberries on wax paper
  • While the chocolate is still warm, quickly add white stars to the blue chocolate that is on the strawberry
  • *I liked to make a circle pattern with the stars, but you can also just sprinkle the stars onto the chocolate. Another alternative would be to use white dot sprinkles or red, white and blue sprinkles in place of stars
  • Repeat with the rest of your strawberries 
  • Store in a covered container at room temperature with wax paper placed directly over the strawberries for added protection to the fruit
  • Best if served the day of making, but you can also serve them within 24 hours of making them


  • If you can’t find white stars, you can use any red, white and blue sprinkles that you have available to you
