Easy Chocolate Covered Strawberries

February 15, 2014 2 min read

Nothing says Valentines Day quite like chocolate covered strawberries. But no one wants to spend their entire day in the kitchen making them. So, here's an easy chocolate covered strawberries recipe that has just three ingredients and five simple steps. If you've read any of my recipes before, you might have started to notice a trend... I'm a huge fan of recipes that use just a few simple ingredients and are easy to make. So, with Valentines Day quickly approaching, I thought I would share with you a super simple recipe for chocolate covered strawberries that will both impress your love and your taste-buds. Just a quick note about this recipe. This is not a low-calorie, low-fat, healthy-for-you-to-eat-every-day recipe. While the recipe does use quality ingredients, it does still have sugar and chocolate. This is one of those recipes that you hold on to for a special occasion. It's not a recipe that's meant to fit into your every day diet. Enjoy a little fun every now and again. :)

Recipe: Chocolate covered strawberries


  • 2 cups chocolate chips (I like these)
  • 1.5 tablespoons homemade lard (see note below)
  • 1 pound strawberries


  1. Wash and dry your strawberries
  2. Melt the chocolate chips either using a double boiler, a bowl over a pot of hot water, or in a microwave
  3. Add the lard to the melted chocolate and stir until smooth.
  4. Dip your dried strawberries into the chocolate then place on a parchment lined baking sheet
  5. Place in the refrigerator until hardened then store in the fridge until ready to eat.
Note: I'm a big fan of traditional foods. If you're not interested in using the lard, you could also use coconut oil or grass-fed butter instead of the lard. All you're looking for is a fat to make the chocolate velvety and soft when you bite into it. Plus, the added fat gives the chocolate a luxurious mouth-feel when you taste it.
