Never pay for fancy chocolate-covered strawberries again. As long as you have a good-melting chocolate, they are super easy to make.
I did these for New Years after seeing a pin on Pinterest for people to buy these. Finding gold sprinkles can be difficult, but I had them from when the Sann Fransciso 49ers were in the Super Bowl. I found them at HomeGoods, which might I add, stores like that are a good when you are looking for unusualy baking, or cooking needs.
Also, I use a trader Joe’s dark chocolate that is both vegan and gluten free. I realize not everyone will have one near them, so find a chocolate that works best for you. For me, it is this one, because I can melt it in the microwave with no added anything. Plus, it is vegan and gluten-free.
The sprinkles were also gluten free, and when I ran it thought my vegan, app it said it was vegan as well. But, be senstive to the colors used to dye the sprinkles, because not all of them are vegan, if that is what you are looking for.
But, I promise you, these are super easy!
Sparkly Dark Chocolate Covered Strawberries
What you will need:
– Fresh strawberries, rinsed and dried well
– melted vegan, gluten-free chocolate (I used Trader Joe’s Swiss 72 percent Cocao Dark Chocolate)
– gold sprinkles
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Melt the chocolate in the microwave in 30 second increments until melted. Stir well.
In a shallow dish add the sprinkles.
Holding the strawberry by the leaf, dip it chocolate, rotatling it to coat all sides.
Then, gently place it into the sprinkles. Theeasiest way to do this is to touch one side into the spinkles, then the other, followed by the two sides not coated.
Do not rotate it like with the chocolate, because it will get messy. You are just touching it into the sprinkles.
Place on teh parchement paper and place in the fridge overnight to set. Remove shortly before you are ready to serve.
