Ever wonder how to make that perfect chocolate dipped strawberry you see at your local chocolatier? We’re really excited to share this recipe with all of you as Valentine’s Day rolls around. This is such a fun activity for you and any loved ones in your life!

These chocolate dipped strawberries are amazing and incredibly easy to make at home! Pete uses spades that you can find at your local hardware store. You can purchase slabs of marble or granite if you don’t have either in your kitchen.

Without further ado, here is the recipe!


Chocolate Dipped Strawberries


Premium chocolate



Marble or granite

Spades- available at any hardware store

Gloves (optional)


Slowly, but carefully, melt chocolate in the microwave or double boiler. If using microwave, heat in 30-second intervals and stir in between. Pete’s chocolate was melted in the factory!

Pour melted chocolate out onto the marble. Try to be quick about this but keep it concentrated so it’ll be easy to manipulate and temper.

Temper the chocolate using the spades. This can be done by quickly moving the chocolate around the marble and mixing it. This is another step that is timely. After too long the chocolate will begin to harden!

Test chocolate on your wrist periodically.  Once it is slightly cool to the touch use spades to put it back in the bowl.

Clean hands or change gloves.  Pick up berries using the stem.  Gently dip 3/4 of each berry into the chocolate and place onto a tray or wax paper.
