Hand-Dipped Chocolate Strawberries

It’s that time of year again, when you walk through the grocery store and there is a station for fresh hand-dipped chocolate strawberries. They smell great, they look great, you can’t help yourself because you know they are going to be amazing.

However amazing they are, they can get quite expensive! Let’s face it, 4 might not be enough, especially if you have to share. The steps of making these hand-dipped, decadent goodies are very simple, much less expensive than purchasing some, and can be a treat to more than 2 people.

These are great for parties or work well as gifts for family and friends. I also like to do these around Mother’s Day, as Moms are usually suckers for chocolate and strawberries. The upside of knowing how to do this is that you can have them year-round and not just for Valentine’s Day or other special occasions.

As pictured, you can do this same thing with pretzels. I prefer to use honey wheat pretzels.
