How To Get Them To Pop Right Out Of The Tray

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. Once they’re completely cool, they will pop right out when you twist the tray in opposite directions.

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
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Additional Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 5 minutes

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-sized 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)


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
