Vegan Chocolate Strawberries Cooking Time

  • Prep time: 5-10 minutes
  • Cool time: 30 minutes+

Ingredients For the Vegan Chocolate Covered Strawberries Recipe

You’ll need just three simple ingredients to make chocolate-covered strawberries.

Vegan Chocolate Covered Strawberries Ingredients
  • Strawberries: The star of the show, providing natural sweetness and a juicy, tart contrast to the chocolate.
  • Vegan chocolate chips: Serve as the rich, sweet coating for the strawberries.
  • Coconut oil: Helps the chocolate harden into a crisp shell, enhancing the texture contrast.

How to Make Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Once you have all your ingredients ready, here’s what you will need to do to make chocolate covered strawberries.

Step 1: Prepare Chocolate Mixture

Melt chocolate chips and the coconut oil in the microwave for about 2 minutes, or until completely melted. Whisk together until well combined.

Step 2: Dip Strawberries in Melted Chocolate and Let Rest

Dip the strawberries in the melted chocolate, make sure to keep the green stems clean. Let them rest on a baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper to catch the excess chocolate drip.

Step 3: Pop in the Refrigerator Until Hardened

Put them in the fridge to let the chocolate harden for at least 30 minutes. Once the chocolate has hardened, enjoy, or keep refrigerated.

Tips & Tricks to Nail the Recipe

Ready to make the perfect chocolate covered strawberries? Here are some tips and tricks you might want to take note of.

  • Remember to use a microwave safe bowl to melt the chocolate. If you don’t want to use the microwave, you can use a double boiler. Just remember to stir constantly when the chocolate is being melted.
  • To get the perfect chocolate dipped strawberries, use high quality chocolate for the chocolate coating. Gourmet chocolate is a great choice.
  • Make sure the strawberries are completely dry before you dip them in the melted chocolate. This will ensure that the berries are perfectly coated. You can use a paper towel to wipe off all the excess water from the surface.
  • For best results, use semi sweet chocolate instead of the sweetened variety. This will help the natural sweetness of the fresh strawberries shine through.
  • You can use frozen strawberries for this recipe too, if that’s what you have at hand. Just remember to get them at room temperature before you use them for the recipe.
  • Remember to add toppings on the chocolate dipped strawberries while the chocolate still hasn’t set yet.
  • To minimize the mess and cleanup afterward, I would highly recommend setting a sheet pan lined with waxed paper under the wire rack. This prepared baking sheet will catch all the excess chocolate dripping off the strawberries.

What Other Variations Can I Try?

You can bring in tons of variations to this easy chocolate covered strawberries recipe by adding different toppings and using different kinds of chocolate.

You can try dipping strawberries in dark chocolate or white chocolate- or both!

You can also choose to top the chocolate covered strawberries with your desired toppings to bring some more flavors and textures into the picture.

Chopped nuts, sprinkles and shredded coconut are some good choices for these and other chocolate dipped fruits.

How Do I Store Chocolate Covered Strawberries For Later?

You can freeze chocolate covered strawberries in an airtight container for 3-4 days, if not more.

If you have any leftovers, you can pop them in the refrigerator for a day.
