The strawberry (Fragaria) is a genus of plants in the family Rosaceae, and the fruit of these plants. There are more than 20 named species and many hybrids and cultivars. The most common strawberries grown commercially are cultivars of the Garden strawberry, Fragaria ananassa. Strawberries are a valuable source of vitamin C.

A perfect little red heart, the strawberry is an edible Valentine. Touted as an aphrodisiac fruit since the times of ancient Rome, the strawberry was a symbol of Venus. In the French countryside, there was once a tradition of serving newlyweds cold strawberry soup to help promote the aphrodisiac of honeymoon romance. There’s also a legend saying that if you break the strawberry in half and share it with a member of the opposite sex, you will soon fall in love with each other.

Often a chocolate strawberry is synonymous with being an aphrodisiac. Although no scientific information is available to confirm this belief, chocolate has been proven to increase the energy levels of an individual who consumes the delicious treat.

Chocolate Strawberry


  • Strawberries - large and are not over ripe
  • Chocolate - use an expensive variety or simply purchase a package of chocolate bits or chips.
  • Before beginning the process of making your chocolate strawberry, it is important to rinse off the strawberries and then dry the fruit by simply patting them with a paper towel. It is critical that the strawberries are completely dry as any water that finds its way into the chocolate will spoil the process.
  • Then, place the unpackaged chocolate into the mixing bowl and place into the microwave on the highest setting for around 30 seconds. As the chocolate is being melted, cover your cookie sheet with a layer of waxed paper.
  • Following the 30 seconds of micro-waving remove the glass bowl and stir the chocolate contents with the rubber spatula. To ensure that the chocolate is completely melted, place the glass bowl back into the microwave and repeat the micro-waving one additional time. Stir again the mixture with the rubber spatula. The resulting chocolate mixture should give the appearance of being like a chocolate creamy soup.
  • You're now ready to begin dipping the strawberries into the chocolate mixture. Taking the strawberry by the leafy area or by the stem, dip the strawberry into the chocolate and turn the fruit so that all sides are evenly covered with the chocolate mixture. Then, pull the strawberry out of the chocolate and allow any excess chocolate to drip off back into the mixing bowl.
  • After completing this step simply place the chocolate strawberry on to the wax paper that is lining the cookie sheet. After all of the strawberries have been dipped into the chocolate, place the cookie sheet aside and allow the chocolate to set for a couple of hours.
