Easter White Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Every Easter, I love serving a big dessert. Something that really steals the show and makes people say wow! One of my favorite show-stealing Easter desserts to make is my famous Bunny Oreo Ice Cream Cake.
However, more than anything, I love serving little treats like these white chocolate covered strawberries that anyone can just pick up and snack on. I think that all holidays call for a bit of excess – excessive hugging, gift giving, and sugar eating! So, why not serve these adorable strawberries alongside your main dessert? The more treats, the merrier!
Strawberries are always delicious, but I especially love enjoying them when they’re at their ripest, which conveniently is springtime! These juicy berries are always best this time of year, which is what makes these Easter strawberries even better.
Oh, and if you have any little ones, they’re going to LOVE helping you with this recipe almost as much as they’ll love eating the final product! Coating the strawberries is a bit messy, but a whole lot of fun. Also, as much as I’m sure they love carrots, they’ll probably like these sweet treats that look like carrots even more.
How to Make Them
Making these chocolate covered strawberries is truly a breeze. Get ready to dip!
Rinse. Start off by rinsing the strawberries in cool water. This is important, as you never know what might be on those fresh berries! After they’ve been rinsed off, dry them thoroughly with a paper towel, then arrange them on a towel. Let them air dry for at least 10 minutes on the towel. You want them to be completely dry so the chocolate sticks!
Melt. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the white chocolate in 30 seconds intervals. Be sure to stir the chocolate every 30 seconds so it doesn’t burn or melt unevenly! Stop microwaving once the chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
Color. Stir in the food coloring to the melted chocolate. Just use a few drops at a time, though, and add more until you reach the desired color. Remember, you can always add more food coloring, but you can’t take it out once it’s been stirred in.
Dip! This is when your kids can start helping you out! Dip each strawberry, one at a time, into the colored chocolate. As you dip the berries, turn them in the melted chocolate to fully coat them. Before removing from the bowl, let any excess drops of chocolate fall from the berry.
Place. When placing the coated berries onto a sheet of parchment paper, be sure to push the strawberries forward about 1/2 inch to help avoid the chocolate puddle from forming at the tip of the berry.
Set. Transfer the baking sheet full of berries to a cool, dry place to allow the white chocolate to fully set.
Drizzle. Transfer the remaining chocolate to a zip top bag and snip off a corner. Then, drizzle the chocolate onto the berries. This is what creates the carrot ridges!
Set. Once they’ve all been drizzled, allow the chocolate to set again.
Serve. Serve the strawberries immediately, and enjoy!
How long will these Easter themed strawberries stay fresh?
In an airtight container lined with a paper towel, these sweet berries will stay fresh in the fridge for up to 2 days!
The paper towel is extremely important to use during storage, as it will absorb any excess moisture from the berries.
How can I use extra strawberries?
If you have any strawberries left over, have no fear! I have quite a few strawberry recipes that will make sure those berries aren’t wasted.
You could always make something like Strawberry Puree or Strawberry Jam if you want something delicious that you can always keep handy! If it’s a strawberry dessert you’re craving, you can’t go wrong with the BEST Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp.
Happy Easter, friends! Here are a few more cute treats to help you celebrate!
