Quick and Easy Homemade Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

  • Author: Shanna Mallon

Although they taste and look like you’ve expended considerable effort, these easy chocolate-covered strawberries can be made in 15-minutes. Not too sweet but as decadent as a box of Swiss chocolates – they are much better for your waist line.


  • 4 ounces cacao (i.e., unsweetened chocolate, like Baker’s)
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • Organic maple syrup, to taste (start with 3 oz)
  • A dash of sea salt
  • Up to 1 pint organic strawberries, washed and dried


  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt together the chocolate and butter until smooth. Add maple syrup to taste and remove from heat when you like the sweetness level. Add a dash of sea salt.
  2. Arrange strawberries on a parchment-lined dish or baking sheet. Holding them by their greens, dip into chocolate, rolling to cover around the sides. Lift, let chocolate drip off, and place on parchment.
  3. Repeat until you’re out of chocolate or out of strawberries, whichever comes first (the size of your strawberries will affect how many you can make).
  4. Chill in refrigerator until set, about an hour or so. Enjoy!
