- 1 pound Strawberries, organic
- 6 ounces Milk Chocolate, chopped
- 6 ounces White Chocolate, chopped
- 1/4 cup Pistachios, salted, chopped See recipe note
- 1/4 cup Honey Roasted Peanuts, chopped
- 1/4 cup Coconut flakes, toasted and chopped
- 1/4 cup Sprinkles, multi-colored
Line a large baking sheet with wax or parchment paper.
Place the white chocolate in a heatproof bowl that is set inside a medium saucepan filled with a few inches of water. Make sure the bowl doesn't touch the water in the bottom of the saucepan.
Simmer the water on medium high heat until the chocolate starts to melt, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and stir the chocolate until smooth. Set the white chocolate aside.Use the same process with the milk chocolate. Alternatively, you heat the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl for 30 seconds at time, stirring at each interval with a spoon until the mixture begins to melt. Once the chocolate starts to melt, stirring it will make the whole mixture smooth. Continue to heat and stir until the chocolate is smooth. Carefully hold each strawberry by the stem and dip it in the warm chocolate and set it on the baking sheet. Wait a few seconds for the chocolate to set up a bit, then top with nuts or sprinkles using your fingers. You can go back and add a few more sprinkles as you are doing this to fill in spots if needed. See recipe notes.
Mix and match the chocolates and toppings to make a variety.
Cool the strawberries so they set, which will take 30-45 minutes. Keep in a cool location until serving. Alternatively, you can place the whole baking sheet in the refrigerator for 15 minutes until the strawberries are completely cool. Strawberries are best eaten the day they are made.
For the garnish of your strawberries, use a combination of ingredients like chocolate sprinkles, toasted coconut, chopped peanuts or honey roasted nuts, and a variety of sprinkles.
Have fun and make as many combinations as you'd like!
To toast coconut, place on a large baking sheet and bake at 350 for about 8 minutes. Cool completely and use on the strawberries.
It's easy to double this recipe for a crowd, this is a fun party dessert.
If the nuts and sprinkles fall off the strawberries, that means you should wait a few more seconds to let the chocolate set a little before adding.
Best to eat these the day they are made, but if you have a few leftovers, store them in the refrigerator.
