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.

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.

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.

      Hi Jackie,

      Uh-oh! Hmmm… Were your strawberries very soft and ripe? It sounds like they might have been a little too ripe.

    Can you make these a day ahead and store in the refrigerator? How would you wrap them?
