Strawberry Chocolate Dipped

Whether fresh or frozen, sliced or baked, strawberries are so versatile and are always a crowd-pleaser.

If your mouth is already watering at the thought of a strawberry cobbler or a fresh tart, just wait until you check out these 13 strawberry desserts. They’re simply to die for!

1. Strawberry Cheesecake

Cheesecake is one of those perfect things in life that is made even better with a good topping. 

The best part of this dessert is that you can use either fresh or frozen strawberries, so it can be made year-round.

Plus, adding a sweet and colorful strawberry topping is not only delicious but (a little) healthier than lashings of chocolate! 

Try changing up which cookies you use to give this creamy and light cheesecake a slightly unique flavor. I think crushed ginger snaps would be a great flavor combination. 

2. Strawberry Chocolate Mousse Cake

If I worried you before by suggesting you should pick strawberries over chocolate, don’t fret. I have you covered with this beautifully balanced mousse cake.

With the crunchy Oreo crust and silky smooth chocolate mousse, it’s hard to stick to just one slice.

The fresh strawberries inside provide a little sweetness to balance out all that chocolate, along with a nice pop of color. 

And if that’s not enough, this mousse cake is topped with an ultra-luxurious chocolate ganache for an extra chocolate kick. 

With just a 10-minute prep time, the worst part will be waiting for the mousse to set before digging in. 

3. Easy Homemade Strawberry Shortcake

If you’ve never made homemade biscuits before, trust me when I tell you, now is the time.

These biscuits come together with just four easy steps. When baked in a snug little group, they’ll rise to provide a light and fluffy base for your shortcake.

Don’t forget the sugar on top for a lovely little bit of crunch.

The combination of warm biscuits with a juicy strawberry filling and a dollop of whipped cream will leave you feeling like a Southern Belle. 

4. Strawberry Ice Cream

You need not worry about tempering eggs to have delicious and creamy homemade ice cream. This recipe has just six ingredients and is easy enough to make with kids.

Blitzed, sweetened strawberries are the base for this sweet and simple dessert.

Combine puréed strawberries with heavy cream, milk, vanilla, and a little salt, before adding the mixture into an ice cream maker.

In just 30 minutes, you’ll have a soft and perfectly pale pink sweet treat. 

5. Strawberry Shortcake Cookies

If you’re looking for something that travels well, is easy to make, and combines all the goodness of strawberries and cream into one bite, these cookies are a must-try.

Use cold butter in your cookie dough to make the cookies extra tender and biscuit-like.

If you have a little trouble incorporating the chopped strawberries, don’t be afraid to add them at the end once you have formed your cookie dough balls. 

6. Strawberry Cobbler

Cobbler is one of those desserts that is so simple to make, but is always a favorite.

This kid-friendly dish is another strawberry option that will come together fast.

If you’re not afraid to get your hands dirty, you can make the cobbler top without a mixer.

Because of its rustic look, you can even have the kids help with topping the fruit filling.

Try experimenting with additional fruits to keep this dessert fresh and different every time. I love to add peaches or apples for a slightly different take.

If you’re feeling a little indulgent, try sprinkling some chocolate chips in before adding the cobbler top.

7. Homemade Strawberry Cake

This recipe will give you a cake bursting with strawberry flavor by incorporating an easy-to-make strawberry compote into the batter. 

Adding cream cheese to the strawberry frosting helps to cut down on the sweetness without taking away from the fresh fruity flavor.

For some added pops of color, mix in some finely chopped strawberries that will fleck through the frosting for a lovely red and pink finish. 

8. Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Whether you’re looking for the perfect topping for your homemade strawberry cake or just a simple and elegant sweet treat, you really can’t go wrong with chocolate covered strawberries.

Be sure to use high-quality chocolate, as cheaper chocolate will not melt right and can leave an uneven finish.

Also be sure to use the freshest strawberries that are undamaged and completely dry. 

Want to take it up another level? Try striping your chocolate covered strawberries with a little white chocolate, or sprinkling them with chopped nuts.

9. Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Brownies

Brownies are such a family favorite and are just as good solo as with a topping. If you’re looking for a way to up your brownie game, this recipe is for you.

It’s as simple as baking a batch of brownies and topping it with as many strawberries as possible. Then top them with a generous helping of chocolate ganache. That’s it!

10. Strawberry Shortcake Truffles

These sweet little truffles are made with dehydrated strawberries, to really pack in as much flavor as possible.

You can find dehydrated strawberries in most major grocery stores or online.

Making this dessert really couldn’t be any easier. It calls for store-bought cookies, cream cheese, chocolate, and strawberries. It can be made in less than 10 minutes. 

If white chocolate is a little too sweet for you, dip them in dark chocolate for a richer bite. 

11. Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Is there anything easier than store-bought, ready-to-go pie crusts?

Pastry can be a tricky thing, even for seasoned bakers. Have you ever tried making a flaky pastry? It’s not easy. 

The star of this pie is the filling, but if you want to make your own pie crust, more power to you!

Still, the real reason people will come back for more is the insanely good combination of sweet strawberries and slightly sour rhubarb. 

12. Strawberry Tart with Pastry Cream

With a crisp base and smooth vanilla pastry cream, this tart is perfected by adding fresh sliced strawberries.

Top it with a simple glaze for shine, or some chocolate shavings for an extra little indulgence. 

If you want to make this tart ahead of time, be sure to brush the pastry case with white or dark chocolate to prevent the pastry cream from soaking in and softening the case. 

13. Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas

Looking for something out of the box?

This unusual dessert is packed with strawberry cheesecake before being fried and rolled in cinnamon sugar.

If that’s not enough, try drizzling some melted chocolate or Nutella over the top for even more flavor.
