Can you make chocolate covered strawberries in advance?
Yes! The wonderful thing about chocolate covered strawberries is they can be made up to a day ahead of time. It’s actually even advisable to prepare at least a couple of hours ahead of time to give the chocolate enough time to harden. Shortcuts with putting in the freezer are not a good idea.
How do you store a chocolate covered strawberry bouquet?
Leave dipped strawberries out at room temperature to set. Alternatively, let dipped strawberries chill in the fridge for 10-15 until hard. Once chocolate strawberries are set, they may be arranged in a vase or container. Cut floral styrofoam to fit the bottom of desired container.
Should strawberries be cold before dipping in chocolate?
You can serve the refrigerated chocolate strawberries chilled or let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. Chilled strawberries will have a nice crunch to the chocolate, whereas room temperature strawberries will have slightly softer chocolate.
Will chocolate covered strawberries keep overnight?
Chocolate covered strawberries can be kept in the refrigerator for several days when stored properly, though ideally, you’ll want to enjoy them within 48 hours. Cover them in wax paper and store them in an airtight container so that the fruit won’t go bad.

How do you keep chocolate covered strawberries from sweating?
To avoid sweating or leaking, it’s best to make chocolate covered strawberries the same day you plan to serve them. But the good news is, they will keep at room temperature for as long as 10 hours, without a problem. Just leave them in a cool, dry place, uncovered, on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Why do my chocolate covered strawberries leak?
Why Do Chocolate Covered Strawberries Sweat? The sweat is just condensation. Both the chocolate and strawberries contain water and when they are subjected to a big temperature change, like going from a chilly fridge to a comfortable room temperature, this brings out the moisture.
Can you use sanding sugar for chocolate covered strawberries?
Red, White and Blue Strawberries Let the excess chocolate drip off the berry. Then, gently dip the bottom tip of the strawberry into a bowl of blue sanding sugar. Repeat with all the strawberries, then let them set on a parchment lined baking sheet.
How do you wash strawberries for dipping in chocolate?
Wash strawberries by dipping them into a mixture of cold water and vinegar, then place on a paper towel. Pay the strawberries dry, and transfer to a dish towel to continue air drying. The trick to good chocolate covered strawberries is letting them dry completely before dipping, as water and chocolate do not mix.
What temp should chocolate be for dipping strawberries?
Add the remaining 1/4 of the chocolate and stir until smooth. The chocolate should register 87 to 89 degrees F on a candy thermometer. Dip each strawberry into the tempered chocolate and place on a sheet pan covered with parchment paper. Refrigerate for 2 minutes to set.
