  • 1 pint (2 cups) medium-large strawberries (18 to 20 strawberries)
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips or white vanilla baking chips
  • 1 teaspoon shortening or vegetable oil


  • 1
    Gently rinse strawberries and dry on paper towels (berries must be completely dry). Line cookie sheet with waxed paper.
  • 2
    In 1-quart saucepan, melt chocolate chips and shortening over low heat, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
  • 3
    Dip lower half of each strawberry into chocolate mixture; allow excess to drip back into saucepan. Place on waxed paper-lined cookie sheet.
  • 4
    Refrigerate uncovered about 30 minutes or until chocolate is firm, or until ready to serve. Store covered in refrigerator so chocolate does not soften (if made with oil, chocolate will soften more quickly at room temperature).

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Arrange these Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries around the base of a cake, or place on top to dress up any dessert.
  • tip 2
    Looking for new ways on how to make chocolate-covered strawberries? Try sprinkling the just-dipped berries with finely crushed peppermint candy or finely chopped pistachios.
  • tip 3
    For easy dipping, dip the berries one at a time, holding them by the calyx (green leaves) or stems, into either the dark or white chocolate. Place the chocolate-covered strawberries on the wax paper-lined baking sheets and refrigerate.
  • tip 4
    When making Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries, wash and completely dry the berries on a clean kitchen towel before you dip them—any water will cause the chocolate to seize up.
