CHOCOLATE COVERED STRAWBERRIES

Nothing says romance and luxury quite like a decadent chocolate-covered strawberry. This seasonal classic is beloved the world over for its perfect blend of sweet fruit and rich chocolate. At Dulce Treats and Sweets, we take great pride in crafting this confection to the highest standards using only the freshest ingredients.

As a premier bakery in Port St. Lucie, we understand that chocolate-covered strawberries are a favorite for many occasions throughout the year. Whether you need a showstopping dessert for a dinner party, a gift basket filled with sweets for Valentine’s Day, or a special afternoon treat – our chocolate-covered strawberries are sure to delight.

We start by carefully selecting plump, ripe strawberries at their peak of flavor. Then using our time-honored techniques, we slowly dip each berry by hand in smooth, premium chocolate. Customers can choose from dark, milk, or white chocolate depending on their preferences. Some key things we ensure:

  • Fresh, locally sourced berries
  • High-quality melting chocolate
  • A perfectly thin chocolate coating
  • Artful arrangements for gifting

By focusing on superior ingredients and craftsmanship, Dulce Treats and Sweets guarantees a chocolate-covered strawberry experience like no other in the area.

Picking the Perfect Strawberries

The strawberry is truly a star ingredient when it comes to chocolate-covered treats. As any baker knows, using high-quality, fresh berries is key to producing a confection worth raving about. Here at Dulce Treats and Sweets, we’ve spent years perfecting our process through trial and error.

When first starting, I’ll admit we didn’t always select the best strawberries for dipping. One batch turned out mushy and another was far too tart. It was through these experiments that I learned the importance of choosing the right variety and picking strawberries at their peak ripeness.

Now we only use two main types of strawberries for chocolate coating- our secret weapon when it comes to chocolate-coated strawberry perfection! We look for a deep red color and superb sweet flavor when ripe. The berries we choose tend to be a bit larger with nice plumpness. The varieties we use yield slightly smaller berries than the gargantuan ones other bakeries may use, but they hold their shape beautifully after dipping.

Of course, size and variety are just part of the equation. As any strawberry lover knows, you also need to examine each berry closely before using them in bakery creations. We look closely at size, shape, smell, and firmness when choosing our fresh berries to use.

While keeping true to our strawberry selection process, we guarantee the berries used for our chocolate-covered treats will delight your taste buds and impress even the pickiest of critics.

Choosing the Right Chocolate

When it comes to chocolate-covered strawberries, the type of chocolate we use is truly an art form. It took us years to get it right and we have been rewarded with a decadent sweet treat to share with our clients and their guests! 

As a bakery, we have experimented with many varieties of strawberries to find the perfect ones for chocolate-covered bliss.

We offer three main types of chocolate dip options: milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and white chocolate. Each has its unique flavor profile that complements the fruit in different ways.

Milk chocolate is a classic combination that appeals to both kids and adults. Its mild cocoa flavor allows the sweetness of the strawberry to shine through. 

Dark chocolate lovers adore the rich contrast it provides to tangy strawberries. 

White chocolate may seem like a surprising choice but it works beautifully. Made from cocoa butter rather than cocoa solids, its creamy-sweet taste lets the berry take center stage. A hint of vanilla enhances the pairing.

Beyond type, we consider texture too, and avoid anything too thick or coarse that could mask the fruit.

Need some guidance on our recommendations? For milk chocolate, Guittard or Ghirardelli are top sellers. For dark, we stand by Valrhona or Callebaut. And for whites, Ghirardelli or Baker’s are hard to beat.

So in summary – know your preferences and let the strawberry shine by choosing the right chocolate mate. Sample our pairings in the bakery to find your new favourite!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. What is the best way to store them so they stay fresh longer?

Keep berries in the fridge in a single layer on a parchment-lined tray or store in an airtight container no more than 2 layers thick. This prevents crushing. You can expect 5-7 days of freshness!

2. Does chocolate type matter? 

The type of chocolate you choose depends entirely on your preference. All chocolate-dipped strawberries are decadently delicious!

3. What’s the difference between chocolate types?

Milk chocolate is milder while dark is richer, but white chocolate lets the berry take center stage. 

4. Presentation ideas for guests? 

We arrange the strawberries very thoughtfully but if you;d like to rearrange them, place them artfully on a tiered stand or platter surrounded by fresh berries or serve them in mini bamboo baskets or glass jars.
