How do you get chocolate to stick to strawberries?

To start, rinse your strawberries in cool water, then pat them dry—leaves and all—with a towel or paper towel until they are completely dry. If they’re even a little bit damp, the chocolate will not stick as it should, and instead, will slide right off the berry.

What does adding coconut oil to chocolate do?

We like to combine coconut oil and melted chocolate so that the chocolate hardens faster and a little thicker. The coconut oil makes the chocolate act like a chocolate shell. It’s not essential—and doesn’t add much flavor at all—but we recommend it.

Should strawberries be cold before dipping in chocolate?

You can serve the refrigerated chocolate strawberries chilled or let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. Chilled strawberries will have a nice crunch to the chocolate, whereas room temperature strawberries will have slightly softer chocolate.

How do you keep chocolate covered strawberries from sweating?

To avoid sweating or leaking, it’s best to make chocolate covered strawberries the same day you plan to serve them. But the good news is, they will keep at room temperature for as long as 10 hours, without a problem. Just leave them in a cool, dry place, uncovered, on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Can I make chocolate covered strawberries the night before?

Yes! The wonderful thing about chocolate covered strawberries is they can be made up to a day ahead of time. It’s actually even advisable to prepare at least a couple of hours ahead of time to give the chocolate enough time to harden.

Why are chocolate covered strawberries so expensive?

The demand is high due to public perception. High demand + limited supply = high price. Additionally, warm chocolate used for dipping shortens the shelf-life of the fresh strawberry. The product has a shorter shelf-life, must be transported faster, and otherwise be more expensive to bring to the shelf in the store.

How long are chocolate covered strawberries good for in the fridge?

How long do chocolate covered strawberries last in the refrigerator? They will typically last for up to two days in the refrigerator.

How Long Can chocolate covered strawberries stay in the fridge?

Can you leave chocolate covered strawberries out of the fridge?

Chocolate covered strawberries should be kept refrigerated (unless you‘re using candy melts – read below). Don’t leave the strawberries at room temperature for a long time after being refrigerated, because they will start to sweat.
