Chocolate Covered Strawberries


Chocolate covered strawberries are my new signature dish. Any party, shin did or barbecue that has a ‘bring a dish along’ vibe will be graced by chocolate covered strawberries from now on.

I’ve already made them twice this year; I made a batch on New Year’s Eve for our New Year’s at home and I made another batch for a baby shower last Saturday. They are so easy to make, so pretty to look at and so tasty to eat that I have decided this is going to be my go-to party dish for now on.  And all you need to make them are three ingredients: strawberries, a bar of milk chocolate and a smaller bar of white chocolate (optional!).

Now you can use any chocolate but I will silently judge you if you choose anything other than Cadbury’s dairy milk.



  1. Wash your strawberries and lay them on a tea towel, dry each one with a paper towel. This helps the chocolate to stick on.
  2. Line a baking tray with parchment paper
  3. Boil 2-3 inches of water in a small pan, break the milk chocolate into pieces and put them into a glass bowl. Put the bowl in the pan and melt the chocolate, stirring frequently. Once all the chocolate is melted take the bowl off the heat.
  4. Dip each strawberry in the chocolate, shake off the excess and lay the strawberry on the baking parchment
  5. Melt the white chocolate using the same method
  6. Spatter the melted white chocolate over the strawberries for a chaotic marble look
  7. Place the tray in the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour before serving.



8. Dunk rich tea biscuits in the left over chocolate. Eat the lot. Tell no one.
