Tip #5: Think Outside of the Box with Chocolate Covered Strawberries

With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, your customers are likely requesting the classic, delicious chocolate covered strawberries. Have you considered also creating something to satisfy those non-traditional romantics?

We’ve compiled just a few ideas to add some fun and variety to a tried and true favorite 

Go Tropical - Cover your strawberries in chocolate and then dip them in a tropical topping such as coconut, dried fruit bits or even lime or lemon zest. 
Pile it On – Many confectioners create candy and caramel apples that are layered with goodness, so why not apply the same principle to your strawberries. Maybe you could do a layer of chocolate, then caramel and then sprinkle a few nuts.
Add Some Color – Use colored sugar crystals to create a rainbow of strawberries. Dipping them in white chocolate first will make the colors stand out but milk and dark chocolate lovers might want some color, too.
Combine Classics – Dip your strawberries in chocolate and then cover them in classic favorites such as sprinkles, chocolate morsels (for those ultimate chocoholics), cinnamon red hots or candy bar pieces.

Do you do something different or creative with chocolate covered strawberries? Leave us a comment. We'd love to hear about it!
