Chocolate Covered Strawberries are a treat usually reserved for special occasions and romantic getaways–but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Who says you can’t enjoy a chocolate-covered strawberry anytime you want? Strawberries are good for you! They are fruit after all and make a wholesome treat. 

Plus, chocolate is delicious. The combination of natural strawberry flavor and chocolate is a perfect complement. The only thing stopping you may be that strawberries can get pricey when they are not in season.

With this recipe, you don’t have to wait for fresh strawberries to be in season to enjoy the flavor of chocolate-covered strawberries. This recipe, which is a TruFru Strawberries copycat, calls for frozen strawberries. The use of frozen strawberries is a great way to enjoy the farm-fresh goodness of nature for even longer and makes this recipe not only easy but also refreshing and perfect for a hot summer afternoon or a healthy and easy snack in January.

If you’re looking for a delicious snack that’s easy to put together, give these fruity treats a try!

Why Make This Recipe

  1. Easy Snack: This recipe takes a short amount of time to put together with basically just strawberries and the exquisite taste of chocolate. Store these bite-sized treats in your freezer and enjoy them whenever your sweet tooth calls.
  2. Refreshing Flavor: Who doesn’t love the taste of a fresh strawberry? Cover it in chocolate and you’ve got yourself the ultimate frozen fruit experience.
  3. Totally Shareable: These sweet treats are perfect for all ages and all occasions. I’m not saying you have to share, but if you wanted to I’m sure these strawberry bites would be well-received.

What Do You Need To Make This Recipe

Ingredients 

Ingredients shown are used to prepare frozen chocolate covered strawberries.
  1. White Chocolate Chips: I have a hard time melting the Nestle white chocolate chips. I recommend the store-brand ones at Walmart as I have the easiest time melting those. 
  2. Vegetable Oil or Coconut Oil: This is optional but makes the melted chocolate a little thinner, shinier, and easy to work with. If you’d prefer to stay away from adding oils, you can totally make these without! 
  3. Frozen Sliced Strawberry Pieces: I do not recommend using full frozen strawberries. You can use any size sliced frozen strawberries you want but keep in mind you don’t want them too thick to bite into. Feel free to buy them already frozen for an easy treat (I did!), or slice them and freeze them yourself before assembly. 
  4. Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips: You can also use milk chocolate or dark chocolate if you prefer

Tools

  1. Microwave-Safe Bowl
  2. Fork or Spoon
  3. Parchment paper
  4. Baking Sheet

How to Make This Recipe

Step One: Melt the Chocolate

Line a plate with parchment paper. Set aside. 

Place the white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil into the bowl. 

Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Remove the bowl, stir, then microwave again for another 30 seconds. Repeat this in 30-second increments until the white chocolate chips are totally melted (it usually takes me 3 rounds). 

Step Two: Coat the Berries

Drop 1 sliced, frozen strawberry into the white chocolate and use a fork/spoon to turn the strawberry until it is fully coated in white chocolate. Set on the parchment paper-lined plate. Repeat with all of the strawberries. 

Place the plate in the freezer and allow the strawberries to chill for 5 minutes or until the chocolate hardens.

In the meantime, melt the semi-sweet chocolate chips. To do so, place the semi-sweet chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil into the bowl. 

Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Remove the bowl, stir, then microwave again for another 30 seconds. Repeat this in 30-second increments until the semi-sweet chocolate chips are totally melted (it usually takes me 3 rounds). 

Remove the white chocolate strawberries from the fridge and coat them in semi-sweet chocolate, using the same technique as before.

Step Three: Wait 

Place them back on the parchment paper lined plate and then place the plate back in the fridge for another 10 minutes until the chocolate is set. 

Enjoy immediately or place the finished strawberries in a plastic resealable bag for later enjoyment. 

Expert Tips

  • You can purchase sliced frozen strawberries from the store or freeze your own when strawberries are in season. Freeze them at the height of ripeness and the flavor will last for months.
  • If you purchase strawberries from the store, be sure and purchase strawberries that have no sugar added. Any sugar coating on the strawberries won’t work for this recipe.
  • You can use a fork or spoon to coat your strawberries or I’ve also seen people use a toothpick to dip berries into chocolate for easy handling.

How Do You Enjoy Frozen Chocolate Covered Strawberries?

I like to eat this snack straight out of the freezer and let the chocolate and the frozen strawberry melt in my mouth. 

You could also let them thaw ever so slightly. This allows the strawberry to become soft while the chocolate remains hard and you get a small explosion of juice when you bite in. Make sure not to allow them to thaw completely or the strawberries will release a lot of extra liquid that will make your treat soggy. 

This healthy snack is also a delicious addition on top of smoothie bowls or other breakfast treats!

Can you Freeze Traditional Chocolate Covered Strawberries?

Normal Chocolate Covered Strawberries are beautiful and fun but they don’t last long and they cannot be frozen like the strawberries in this recipe. 

The reason is that whole strawberries are too thick to bite into if they are frozen. If you let them thaw, they will become soggy underneath the chocolate coating. 

Traditional Chocolate Covered Strawberries are also not fully covered in chocolate which leaves some portion of the berry exposed to possible freezer burn.

Tips for Dipping Strawberries

It’s easy to dip strawberries in chocolate like a pro. You want to start with chocolate that is the right temperature. Too hot and it may separate or become clumpy. Too cold and it won’t melt all the way.

You can melt chocolate in the microwave, a double boiler or an instant pot.

Once you get the chocolate warm and completely smooth, carefully dip the strawberry and tap whatever utensil you are using gently to remove any excess chocolate. 

Carefully transfer the strawberry to parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

If you want to be over the top, you can sprinkle crushed nuts or a sprinkle of sea salt on top of your strawberries for a decadent treat. Decorative stripes can be added by putting melted chocolate in a ziploc and piping it on.
