What are some tips for making perfect keto chocolate covered strawberries?

  1. Keep in mind that you’ll need strawberry stems later, so keep them.
  2. Try to wash the strawberries quickly because they absorb water quickly like a sponge, which speeds up their spoilage. After washing, dry them with hand towels or paper kitchen towels.
  3. Insert two toothpicks gently into the strawberry’s top, then dip it in the melted chocolate. In case you don’t keep the green strawberry stems.
  4. Begin with the largest strawberries first. In your opinion, why?? Because they have the largest surface area, so dip them in when you have the most chocolate and they can be completely covered.
  5. If you do not want to use a double boiler, then a microwave is another option that you can use in this case. So, if using a microwave, heat the chocolate for 1 minute, then remove and stir, then for another 30 seconds. Once you take it out, stir it to dissolve completely. Stirring prevents the chocolate from burning while ensuring it is completely melted.
  6. When dipping, try not to completely immerse the strawberries in the chocolate. Allow a nice red color to appear on the top of the strawberry.
