Chocolate-covered strawberries. In an ice cube tray. Isn’t this just the cutest idea ever?
I discovered this clever recipe on Pinterest awhile back and made it recently for a wine tasting I attended. They are super easy to make and quite inexpensive. I paid less than $5 for a whole tray of these delectable treats. These are the perfect little snacks for any of the following get-togethers:
- Spa night
- Wine tastings
- Bridal showers
- Baby showers
I was a little leery about popping these out of the ice cube tray, fearing that they would stick or fall apart completely, but I had no problem at all. The trick is to refrigerate them long enough so they set – at least an hour.
The best part about these chocolate-covered strawberries? Less mess than traditional dipped strawberries. You can literally prepare these in five minutes, forget about them, then pop them out once your guests arrive. Easy as pie.
Actually, it’s easier than pie.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Made In An Ice Cube Tray
Yield: 12 chocolate-covered strawberries
Don't skimp on the quality of chocolate for this recipe. Use quality chocolate chips such as Ghiradelli or Guittard. To cut back on the sweetness of the milk chocolate, I threw in some unsweetened dark chocolate discs I happened to have on hand.
12 medium strawberries
12-ounce bag of chocolate chips (I used just under a whole bag of chocolate chips to make one tray of chocolate-covered strawberries)
Rinse strawberries and set aside to dry. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave, or in a makeshift double boiler on the stovetop. Heat until chocolate is melted, and stir until smooth. Fill each ice cube slot about 2/3 full with chocolate. Place one strawberry in each slot. Place tray in refrigerator and chill for at least one hour until chocolate is set.
To remove strawberries from tray, simply grab both ends of the tray and turn slowly in opposite directions - just like you do to remove ice cubes from the tray.
