The kids always look forward to taking homemade Valentine treats to their friends and teachers. Each year we try to come up with something creative and tasty (but not too complicated) that we can make fresh the night before Valentine’s Day.

How to Make Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Pops #ValentinesDay #chocolate #strawberry #pops #holidays #gifts

Chocolate covered strawberries are the quintessential Valentine treat, so this year I thought we’d put our own spin on this classic.

Like Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Pops!

We placed each strawberry on a long paper lollipop stick and prepared a drying rack out of a piece of styrofoam. I even left the plastic wrapping on the styrofoam, in case we were especially messy.

Then we melted chocolate and dipped each strawberry into the chocolate, making sure they were thoroughly coated.

After they dried a bit, which only takes a few minutes, we melted colored Candy Melts and took turns dipping the pops in red, pink and white candy coating, to create colorful layers.

On the last layer, we sprinkled the tops with Valentine candy sprinkles!

Viola! Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Pops are a decadent treat the kids can make almost completely on their own.

Their faces were priceless as they bit into these Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Pops.

With mouths full of chocolate and strawberry juice dripping down their chins, they agreed this was the treat to wow their friends, letting them know just how much we love them.

Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Pops

Yield: 24 pops

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Pinch the stem and leaves off the top of each strawberry and gently insert a lollipop stick in the center. Prepare a piece of styrofoam to hold the pops, by punching 24 holes in it with one of the sticks.
  2. Using a double boiler, slowly melt the chocolate over low heat. (Or use the microwave method - Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until melted.)
  3. Dip the strawberries in the chocolate, coating down to the stick.  Make sure there are no gaps/bubbles anywhere or the strawberry juices will seep out. Gently shake off the excess and place in the Styrofoam holder to dry.
  4. Once the chocolate is dry, repeat this process with the colored candy melts, alternating colors, and dipping less deep into the melted chocolate to create colored layers. (You may have to reheat/melt your colored chocolate a few times during this process.)
  5. After the final dip on each pop, quickly sprinkle the top with Valentine colored sprinkles and place back in the holder to dry. Wrap and distribute immediately.

    You had me at 4 layers of chocolate!
    These are seriously the cutest things I have seen in awhile! And, they are so easy and much healthier than some of the other Vday treats.

    These may be the prettiest chocolate covered strawberries I’ve ever seen! I wonder if it would also work to use some gel-based food coloring in melted white chocolate for the pink layers… because I have lots of pink coloring + white chocolate, but no candy melts. Might have to experiment over here!

      Hi there, I wonder if your strawberries were wet from washing. That might have caused the chocolate to slide off.

    Can I ask you to get more specific about your first layer “Baking Chocolate”? Did you use chocolate chips…if so semi sweet or milk? Or did you use Candy Quick/Almond bark? Thanks for the help! These are gorgeous and I’m making them to surprise the hubbs and kiddos :)

      Sorry Michelle,

      Yes, the strawberries need to be very dry or the chocolate won’t stick. Hope your next round are successful!

        Hi, I want to make these for a Valentines Day theme baby shower but, i was wondering if i could skip the first layer and start with white melting candy. Will it still work? Thank You!
