One of the best parts of planning a wedding or a wedding shower is picking out all the food and the theme. It’s been a while since I’ve had to do a wedding shower, since most of my friends are married now, but years ago I did a fun “Love Sweet Love” theme for a friend and we had tons of special desserts made up for the event. If you didn’t catch my the shower, you can check it out HERE. I showed you how I made my Bridal Shower Lace Chocolate Covered Oreos and now I thought I’d share you a quick and easy crowd pleasing dessert that never fails…Bride and Groom Chocolate Covered Strawberries. I will show you how to make Bride and Groom Chocolate Covered Strawberries and they are perfect for a wedding reception or bridal shower or even a wedding favor! Let’s jump into this easy tutorial!
How to Make Bride and Groom Chocolate Covered Strawberries
I’ve made these little beauties for two bridal showers now and they are always a huge crowd pleaser and people think they are so hard to make, but I’ve got a secret…they’re pretty easy to do!
Here’s all you need:
White chocolate (about two bags)
Milk or Dark Chocolate
Icing bags with tips or chocolate decorating bottles (Wilton makes good ones)
Sprinkles or other decorations
1. Start by washing your strawberries off and then drying them gently with a paper towel. You don’t want to have excess water on them that will ruin your chocolate (water and chocolate don’t mix!).
2. Start with your bride strawberries. Pick about a dozen strawberries that are similar in size and then pick another dozen similar in size. I usually group the larger ones together and the smaller ones together. The smaller ones I use for the bride strawberries and the larger for the groom…only makes sense, right?!
3. From there I melt my white chocolate in a microwaveable bowl. I take the smaller strawberries and dip the whole berry up to a less than a quarter inch from the top of the stem. I do this for all of the strawberries and place them on wax paper to harden while I’m dipping.
For the bride strawberries, dip the whole thing into white chocolate and then place on wax paper and let harden.
