Chocolate Covered Strawberry Bites- 9 calories each

Strawberries are in season and I am taking advantage of the abundance of my favorite berry. Just like my Banana Bites these are perfect for a quiet movie night or a big party. They are easy, so easy the hardest part is finding room in your fridge for them.

Chocolate Covered Strawberry BitesFeeds 2-

  • 4 large Strawberries
  • 1/8 cup Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 1/2 tsp Olive Oil

Cover a plate or cookie sheet with parchment paper. Slice the stems and tips off and discard , slice the strawberries into 3 discs and place on the parchment paper leaving room between each for chocolate runoff.

Use a double boiler to melt the chocolate, place a small sauce pan on your stove top and add about 1 cup of water to the pan. Add a glass, heat safe bowl to the top of the pan so that it sits slightly inside and the water but does not touch the water, just the steam. If need be remove some water. Add the chocolate to the bowl and continuously stir the chocolate while you bring the water in the pan to a boil. Once the chocolate is melted add the oil and remove from heat.

You can also melt the chocolate in your microwave. In a microwave safe bowl heat the chocolate chips in 10 second intervals, stir in between each 10 second round until chocolate is runny. Remove from microwave and add the oil stir well.

Drizzle the chocolate over the strawberries, place in fridge for 20 minutes before serving.

  1. Do you have to add the oil to the chocolate?

    • You do unfortunately, I have made before and not added the oil and the chocolate hardens up too fast. When this happened to me I put it back in the micro and then it burnt up. It is such a small amount and any oil will work.

      You could try doing a double boil for the chocolate and dipping the chocolate with still on the boiler, I have not tried it that way before but if you do please tell me how it comes out.

      Happy Cooking!
