How do I cut a strawberry to make a heart shape?
If you use the short and fatter strawberries, you won’t have to do anything special. These strawberries actually form the perfect shape of a heart once sliced and placed side by side.
If you are using a larger or longer strawberry, just make sure they are not knobby and don’t have many imperfections to them.
3 Easy Steps to Make Chocolate Covered Strawberry Hearts
First, you want to cut the tops of the strawberries off and then hell them if necessary. Don’t judge me, but I don’t usually do that extra step because it is usually not needed.
Once the strawberry tops have been cut, place them side by side to form the shape of a heart.
Melt the chocolate per instructions and then cover the heart-shaped strawberries. I like to drizzle different colors on the tops to make them stand out a little more.
Allow the chocolate covered strawberry hearts to cool on a wire rack, or place them in the refrigerator for faster cooling.
How do I serve Chocolate Covered Strawberry Hearts?
You can serve chocolate covered strawberry hearts in several different ways and here are a few ideas:
