How to Make Mexican Hot Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

The combination of sweet strawberries, creamy chocolate, and a tiny kick of cayenne creates the ultimate trifecta of deliciousness. Chocolate contains a chemical that's known to spike feelings of excitement, making it the perfect seductive ending to a romantic meal.

Preparation: 5 Minutes
Cook: 5 Minutes
Makes 2


  • 1 3 ounce block semi-sweet dark chocolate, chopped or grated
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound strawberries, cleaned
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1.     Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a small saucepan, melt chocolate, stirring with fork or whisk so it melts evenly and doesn't burn. Add cinnamon, cayenne, and salt. When fully melted, remove from heat to prevent burning.
  2.     Holding strawberries by stem end, dip them in melted chocolate, coating them on each side.
  3.     Place dipped strawberries on prepared cookie sheet and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to set chocolate, or until ready to serve.
