Learn how to make chocolate-covered strawberries in just a few easy steps, featuring Harry & David signature truffles. They’re a great dessert for a date night in or a spring occasion like Mother’s Day, or an easy treat for yourself!

Is there a better pairing than strawberries and chocolate? We don’t think so, especially when they’re Harry & David’s strawberries and signature truffles! The strawberries are almost as big as plums, and they’re perfectly ripe and juicy all the way through the berry. And of course, the truffles are exactly what chocolate should be: Smooth and creamy on the inside with a thin but crisp shell of chocolate on the outside. Normal chocolate bars and chocolate chips have stabilizers in them to prevent a smooth melt, but truffles are made with plenty of heavy cream to help them melt into a rich, smooth dip. Putting the two together into a truffle-dipped strawberry dessert is the best possible combination!

How to Make Chocolate Strawberries

Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 0 minutes | Total Time: 5 minutes



  1. First, rinse the berries and dry them very well on paper towels.
  2. Next, chop the truffles and place them in a heat-resistant bowl.
  3. Pour enough water into a saucepan to come up about 2" high. Make sure the bowl of truffles does not touch the water when it is placed on top.
  4. With the bowl of truffles on top of the saucepan, turn the heat to high. Stir the truffles occasionally as they melt, keeping an eye on the mixture very closely. Turn off the heat when the water begins to boil or when half the truffles are mostly melted.
  5. Continue to stir the truffles until they melt into a smooth mixture. This could take a few minutes, but the residual heat of the bowl will melt everything.
  6. Dip each strawberry, one at a time, by first dipping each berry on one side, and then the other. This will create the "V" design on the berries.
  7. Place each berry on a piece of wax paper and allow the chocolate to harden. You may need to let the berries rest in the fridge to completely harden the chocolate.
  8. If you have any leftover melted truffles, drizzle it over the berries in a swirled design once the first layer of chocolate has hardened.
  9. Serve the berries within one day, and store in the fridge until ready to eat.
