This chocolate covered strawberry bouquet is a great homemade gift idea for Valentine’s Day. Maribel TV on YouTube shows how to make this edible bouquet with bright pink chocolate and decoration. It is important to use room temperature strawberries so that the chocolate will stick well. The strawberry bouquet is creative and edible arrangements would charge so much when you can make it at home for the fraction of the price.
- 25 strawberries, room temperature (or depends on the size you’d want your bouquet)
- bright pink (or any color) candy melts
- sprinkles, for decoration (heart-shaped sprinkles or Valentines related)
- white chocolate melt, optional (for decoration)
- wooden skewers
- tissue paper
- plastic wrap Straw
First, melt the chocolate in the microwave and begin by dipping the tip of the skewer into the melted chocolate. Then, insert the stick into the top hard part of the strawberry so they are secure. Cover the whole strawberry with the chocolate and stick it into the styrofoam to dry. Continue to watch Maribel TV tutorial on YouTube for full instructions and details.
Next, once the chocolate is finished and designed, take the decorating paper and fold it in half. Depending on the size of the bouquet, you may need one or two. If you’re using two different kinds of paper, make sure they are stacked and the outer wrapping paper is long to cover the sticks. Use plastic wrap to hold a few of the skewers, then combine them into one.
Overall, I love this chocolate covered strawberry bouquet and it’s super romantic and girly. It’s a thoughtful gift and it saves money if you make it yourself. Plus, you can design it however you like and personalize it to be more special.
