Today I'm going to show you how to make a DIY Chocolate Covered Strawberry Bouquet! This simple, elegant, minimal ingredient treat is perfect for Valentine's Day, Easter, Mother's Day, or any other spring-time holiday. With just a few ingredients and a few minutes of prep, you can make your own edible arrangement right at home.


Units Scale
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries- washed and dried thoroughly
  • 6 ounces chocolate melting wafers or baking bar
  • 6 ounces white chocolate melting wafers or baking bar
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil- divided
  • Sprinkles, chopped nuts, desiccated coconut, or mini chocolate chips for decorations
  • Wooden skewers (enough for all the strawberries)


  1. Take a wooden skewer or cake pop stick and gently push it into the stem end of a strawberry. The stick should be pushed about halfway into the strawberry to secure it.
  2. Repeat step one with remaining strawberries until they all have sticks in them.
  3. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the dark chocolate and 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between each interval until smooth. (Don't microwave for more than 90 seconds)
  4. Working quickly, hold the strawberry by the stick end and dip 3/4 of it into the melted chocolate, then lay it on a parchment lined baking sheet to harden completely.
  5. Repeat step four with half of the skewered strawberries.
  6. In another microwave safe bowl, melt the white chocolate with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil. Heat for 30 seconds at a time, stirring between each interval until smooth. (Don't microwave for more than 90 seconds)
  7. Dip the remaining half of the strawberries into the white chocolate, following the same method as directed in step four.
  8. Decorate the strawberries with a fancy chocolate drizzle and again, allow to harden.
  9. Once the strawberries are completely hardened, you can arrange them in your vase. If your vase is wide mouth, I recommend placing a bit of floral foam in the bottom to make arranging easier. Fill the vase with chocolate candies to cover the foam if you want!
  10. Tie a ribbon around the vase, add a little card, and deliver your valentine.


  • Use room temperature strawberries: Don't use strawberries that have come directly from the fridge. Take them out about an hour before you plan on using so that they can come to room temperature to prevent the chocolate from cracking.
  • Dry strawberries thoroughly: On that same note, it's important to make these with really dry strawberries. Either dry with a paper towel or absorbent tea towel to remove any water from washing before you dip them.
  • Use good quality chocolate: Chocolate chips are not great for melting. I recommend using Ghirardelli chocolate wafers or another brand of chocolate melting wafer.
  • Work quickly: You will need to work quickly before the chocolate begins to harden. Try and have everything prepped beforehand so you're ready to go
  • Use long enough skewers: Choose your vase first, then measure out the sticks you're planning on using. Nothing worse than dipping all your berries and realizing the vase is too tall!
