Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Chocolate Covered Strawberries



– 1 box white cake mix – strawberry soda – 1 teaspoon Strawberry Extract Chocolate Frosting Ingredients: – 1 cup Butter softened – 4-5 cups Powdered Icing Sugar – 1/2 cup Cocoa Powder – 3 Tablespoons Milk – 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract or Strawberry – 1/2 teaspoon Salt – Chocolate Dipped Strawberries Ingredients: – 12 Strawberries – 1 cup Chocolate Melting Wafers

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a muffin tray with cupcake liners and set aside.


In a large mixing bowl, beat the dry cake mix, eggs, oil, water, strawberry soda and strawberry extract with an electric mixer on low speed for 3 minutes.


Scoop with the cupcake batter into the prepared muffin tray and then bake for 15 -17 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the muffin pan for 10 minutes.


In a separate bowl beat together the butter, powdered icing sugar and cocoa for 2-3 minutes until everything is mixed well together.


Add the milk, flavor extract (and salt if you are using). Beat until the frosting becomes thick and smooth.


Place the frosting into a piping bag with a large star tip. Pipe the frosting onto a cooled cupcake. Then make the chocolate covered strawberries.


Melt chocolate by placing wafers into a glass container and placing in the microwave for 20 seconds at a time, stirring each time.


Hold strawberries at the top and dip them in the melted chocolate. Put dipped strawberries on wax paper to dry, about 1 hour.


Cut strawberries in half for topping on the cupcake.


Serve and enjoy.
