Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pops are so much easier to eat than regular ones. They are so good and less messy.
Whenever I eat chocolate covered strawberries they are always messy. Sometimes the leaves fall off and it just isn’t easy.
Putting the strawberries on a pop stick makes it so easy and you can eat the whole thing at one time or take bites.
Being able to place them in gift bags makes it where I can hand them out to all of my friends and it’s also very cute.
I made half with dark chocolate and half with milk chocolate. Then you can use the opposite kind for decorating or you can use colored melting chocolates.
I found small packages of white and pink melting chocolates at the store and thought they would be wonderful but they ended up being a little difficult to work with.
I’ll just stick to melting the white chocolate and adding my own colors.
I even soak some of the strawberries in brandy for an hour before coating them. Those were really good and the strawberry flavored brandy makes a great cocktail.
I was thinking about ways to wrap them so that I could give some to friends and I came up with cake pop covers at the store. They are the perfect size and even have cute ribbons with them for decoration.
- 24 strawberries
- 24 lollipop sticks
- 8 ounces dark chocolate
- 8 ounces milk chocolate
- Wash strawberries and remove the tops.
- Melt chocolates in microwave in twenty second intervals until smooth.
- Dip the end of a lollipop stick in the chocolate and then insert it into the top of the strawberry. Cool for a few minutes in the refrigerator.
- Dip strawberries in the chocolate and place on wax paper or parchment paper.
- Decorate as desired.
- Chill completely before sharing.
A higher grade of chocolate will give the best results.
To add even more chocolate you can hollow out the strawberry and fill it with chocolate.
