What is White Chocolate?
White chocolate is a sweet chocolate-like substance made with cocoa powder, sugar, milk products, vanilla, and a fatty ingredient called lecithin. It’s not technically legitimate chocolate as it doesn’t contain cocoa nibs or chocolate solids. However, it has a very similar texture to chocolate both when it is solid and when it is melted. It is PERFECT for sweet treats like these white chocolate strawberries.

Top Tips for making White Chocolate Covered Strawberries Recipe
- Set your microwave to half power: You will only want your microwave to operate at 50% power, so as to not melt the white chocolate!
- Use a griddle: I found that heating up a griddle on a very low setting, covering it with a kitchen towel and then placing the melted chocolate bowl on top will keep the chocolate very smooth and easy to work with!
How to store Chocolate strawberries
I recommend storing your chocolate berries in an airtight container in the fridge. This will keep them as fresh as possible!

White Chocolate Covered Strawberries
- 4 Oz White chocolate, cut into pieces (or white chocolate chips)
- 1/2 Tbsp Coconut oil
- 8 Oz Hulled strawberries
In a SMALL microwave safe container, melt the chocolate with the coconut oil. Set the microwave on 50% power and cook on 20 second intervals, stirring between each interval, until smooth.
Pick the strawberries up by the top and dip almost all the way in the chocolate**, gently shaking off the excess. Place onto a parchment paper lined plate or baking sheet and repeat with all berries.
Drizzle the remaining chocolate on top.
Place in the fridge to harden for 5-10 minutes.
**If you have a griddle, I have found that it works awesome to set on a very low temp, place a kitchen towel on top and then place your bowl of melted chocolate. The low heat keeps the chocolate smooth and easy to work with!
