If you see the prices on the chocolate covered strawberries at the gourmet store, it’s crazy! Like $2-$4 per strawberry – absolutely outrageous!

Don’t waste your money on those overpriced store-bought chocolate strawberries – just make your own. It’s soooo easy! Especially when you follow my simple instructions :)
If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I also make the red white and blue chocolate covered strawberries for 4th of July! Same concept, just using the blue sugar sprinkles instead of green :) If you are looking for regular dark chocolate covered strawberries recipe, check out my tutorial how to make chocolate dipped strawberries.
Making Christmas chocolate covered strawberries is super easy, you can literally do it in under 10 minutes from start to finish. All you need to do is melt the chocolate in the microwave, put the green sugar on a plate, grab each strawberry by the stem and dunk first in chocolate and then in sugar. Lay the dipped strawberries on the parchment paper (so they don’t stick) and refrigerate until chocolate coating hardens. That’s it :)
A key to success to making the chocolate covered strawberries is making sure the strawberries are completely dry before dipping. If they are wet, the chocolate coating won’t stick well. So after you wash your strawberries, either lay them out on the paper towels to dry, or if you have no time to wait, just blot each strawberry with a big bunch of paper towels and it will be dry enough to dip.
A word of caution on using white chocolate for dipping strawberries – you must use the white chocolate BAKING BAR! Do not use white chocolate chips or regular white chocolate – they might not melt properly! Ask me how I know ;) Yeah, I’ve had a kitchen disaster with white chocolate chips where they turned into yellow crumbs instead of melting when I tried to melt them in a microwave. The white chocolate baking bar melts perfectly, resulting in a very smooth layer of white chocolate covering these delicious festive Christmas strawberries!
Not only are these Christmas strawberries delicious, they are also so FUN with their awesome red, white and blue colors! If you like cute fun foods, also check out my Christmas Grinch fruit kabobs – they are Christmas fruit skewers that resemble the Grinch character :)
