What is the best White Chocolate for Dipping Strawberries?
Ghirardelli Premium white chocolate Baking Bar or Ghirardelli Premium white chocolate melting chips are my preferred white chocolate. However as long as it is a quality chocolate it will work.
How to Store Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
These White Chocolate Covered Strawberries are best when eaten the same day they are prepared. They should be stored in the fridge in an airtight container. I do not recommend freezing them.
How long will they last?
If your house is like mine they will be gone in about 20 minutes after you make them. If you do have any left overs then they will keep in the fridge for a few days, however we find them to best enjoyed within 48 hours of making them.
Tips for the Best Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
Use Fresh Strawberries. Choose strawberries that are ripe but still firm. Avoid underripe or overripe and squishy strawberries.
Room temperature. Use strawberries that are room temperature.
Make sure strawberries are dry after being washed. To be certain they were dry I used a paper towel on each berry, including the green tops before dipping. You will want them to room temperature before dipping.
Pick a high quality melting chocolate. You will be able to taste the difference!
Use a double boiler. It is much easier to melt chocolate in a double boiler then in the microwave. It gives a much smoother chocolate. You can use either method but I highly suggest using the double boiler method.
Don’t make the chocolate to hot! Make sure the chocolate is warm and melted but not overly hot to avoid cooking the strawberries. White chocolate tends to be a little bit thicker so you will want it to be hot enough that it is fully melted, but not so hot that it will shock the strawberries and cause them to ever so slightly ‘cook’ this will affect how long they last for.
Allow enough set time. Once dipped, allow the chocolate to harden and cool at room temperature before you move to the fridge.
Prep everything before getting started. Have a tray lined with wax paper ready to go along with your chocolate in a bowl that can easily be dipped into before starting will make your life much easier.
White Chocolate Dipped Strawberries Ingredients
- 1 pound of fresh, ripe but not too ripe strawberries
- 8 ounces of quality white chocolate
How To Make Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
Thoroughly wash and dry your strawberries and place them on a plate.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Using a double boiler melt the chocolate. If you prefer to use the microwave you can by melting the chocolate for 30 seconds at a time and then stirring in between.
Once the white chocolate is melted line up your supplies in order of strawberries, bowl of melted chocolate and then baking sheet.
Grab the strawberry by the green leaf dip and dip the strawberry into the melted white chocolate. Holding the top/ greens will keep your fingers out of the chocolate and give a clean finish
After dipping carefully place each strawberry on the tray with enough space that they will not touch.
Drizzle each white chocolate covered strawberry with the remaining melted white chocolate.
Allow 10 minutes or so for the chocolate to harden fully. Enjoy right away or store in an airtight container.
