Cornish Strawberries with Dark Belgian Chocolate

Updated: Jun 15

One of the best flavour combinations if you ask me ... sweet, juicy Cornish strawberries and decadently dark Belgian chocolate. A match made in heaven! When strawberries are in season you can't beat their beautiful freshness and deep flavour. We are lucky here in Cornwall that we produce the best home-grown strawberries. They are fabulous by themselves, dipped in a little caster sugar (as we used to have them in my childhood) or dripping in melted chocolate. As I have mentioned before (in my Chocolate Ganache post) always use a good quality chocolate and make sure it is a minimum of 54% cocoa solids. You can, of course, also dip them in milk or white chocolate too!

Cornish Strawberry & Belgian Chocolate Recipe

A very simple recipe and quick to make!


1 x punnet strawberries


  1. Wash the strawberries and pat dry with kitchen roll.

  2. Line a baking tray or plate with baking parchment.

  3. Melt the chocolate in a glass bowl over a pan of simmering water or in the microwave in a microwavable bowl.

  4. Holding the green tips, dip your strawberries in the melted chocolate and swirl in a circle to coat evenly.

  5. Place on the tray or plate and leave to set.

Notes: if using a microwave, do it in short bursts as you may need to give the chocolate a stir. You can set them in the fridge but the chocolate may lose its sheen so I prefer to leave them to set at room temperature. For extra decadence, coat the strawberries in dark chocolate, leave to set, then coat in white chocolate and leave to set again!If you'd like to keep up with news, recipes and exclusive offers from The Little Home Bakery sign up for my newsletter here.
