Part 1: Gathering the Supplies for Chocolate Covered Strawberry Decorated Cookies

To create these chocolate covered strawberry decorated cookies you will want to gather:

Part 2: Baking the Cookies and Setting up Your Icing Bags

  1. Roll, cut out, and bake your strawberry shaped sugar cookies according to your cookie dough recipe. You will be able to bake a lot of these cookies so feel free to create other designs too! I have some other great suggestions for Valentine’s Day cookies here: Valentine’s Day Tutorials
  2. While your cookies are cooling, make your buttercream frosting. Separate the frosting into 3 different bowls and add in the gel food dye to obtain your brown, red, and green frosting. You only need a small amount of green frosting compared to the brown and red, so adjust accordingly. Remember when creating red frosting, get your shade about 3/4 of the way to where you want it. Then, let it sit out with plastic wrap over it for a few hours (if you have the time) and the red will deepen in color!
  3. Set up your icing bags as follows: Place the green frosting into an icing bag with the tip #66 in it. Place the red frosting into a bag with the tip #3 in it and the brown frosting into a bag with the tip #5 in it. If you aren’t sure how to do this, no worries, just hop over to my Getting Started: Learn How to Decorate Buttercream Cookies page.

Part 3: The 4 Steps for Decorating Your Chocolate Covered Strawberry Sugar Cookies

  1. Your first step will be to outline and fill in the strawberry shape, not including the leaves. Use your red frosting for this step.
  2. Next, use the green frosting to pipe out leaves for the strawberry. You will want to align the tip so that the flat/wider part is facing up toward you. Check out the video tutorial for further clarification. You will notice that the leaves don’t want to form a nice tip. Use the pointed knife to move the frosting to create a nice point to each leaf. Don’t forget to create a couple of leaves over the strawberry as well.     chocolate covered strawberry decorated sugar cookies
  3. Now, take the brown frosting and outline/fill in the chocolate for the chocolate covered part of these chocolate covered strawberry decorated cookies. You can be a bit sloppy with the line work since you will be smoothing out the buttercream frosting in the next step. chocolate covered strawberry decorated cookies
  4. Once you’ve completed step three for all of your cookies, place your decorated cookies into the freezer for about 10 minutes. This allows the frosting to set in place, making it easier to smooth buttercream frosting. Once the cookies have frozen a bit, take a few out at a time and smooth out the brown frosting.  chocolate covered strawberry decorated cookies
