Tempering is For Toddlers’ Tantrums

I have chocolate-dipped countless amounts of strawberries. I have used high-quality chocolate, studied it in cookbooks, and spent lots of time carefully tempering the chocolate. You would think it would be fairly simple to make a beautiful berry that lasts a few days. 

However, due to the nature of strawberries, after about 24 hours the moisture begins to separate the berry from the chocolate coating. It doesn’t seem worth it to spend so much time tempering expensive chocolate just to have it be ruined by morning. I kept at it though because I love Chocolate Dipped Strawberries.

The Miracle

In this midst of my Chocolate Dipped Strawberry journey, I attended a wedding reception for a friend. They served chocolate dipped strawberries they had dipped by hand. I could not leave the dessert table. They were delicious! Curious to how they had achieved such wonderful results, I asked what kind of chocolate they had used. Their response? Chocolate chips!

I couldn’t believe I had been wasting so much time tempering fancy chocolate. Chocolate chips seemed to be the answer to all my problems. They were simple, beautiful, and tasted wonderful.

Choosing the Right Chocolate for the Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

The Chocolate Dipped Strawberries at the wedding reception had been dipped in semi-sweet chocolate chips. I tried using my favorite brand of semi-sweet chocolate chips but the melted chocolate was too thick and didn’t coat the berries well. 

Next, I tried using some Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chips. WOW. They melt smooth and the strawberries come out perfectly dipped. The flavor is incredible. No matter if the strawberries are sweet or tart, they taste amazing. Even dark chocolate lovers, like Kenzie, can’t get enough of them. It’s like magic. You won’t be able to stop at just one. 

I guarantee this easy Chocolate Dipped Strawberry recipe will save you time, money, and you’ll feel confident enough to make them anytime you feel like it. They make any day feel extra special. Let us know what occasion you’re making these for in the comments.
