Before starting my blog, I taught elementary school for 7 years, so I know how hard teachers work for our kids. This simple chocolate covered strawberries gift can be made from start to finish in about 20 minutes, and combines two of my favorite things- strawberries and chocolate!
I’ve also designed some free printable tags for you to download to add to your gift. Let’s get started!

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Teacher Gift
- Strawberries, washed and dried thoroughly
- Chocolate almond bark, chocolate melts, or high quality chocolate
- Chocolate melting pot
- Mini baking cups or treat cups (big enough to fit a strawberry inside of)
- Plastic clamshell container (the kind you get at a restaurant to take your food home in)
- Small paper doily (optional)
- Red Baker’s Twine or string
- Hole punch
- Printable gift tags
Step 1. First you need to make the chocolate covered strawberries. Follow the directions on the back of the chocolate packaging to melt the chocolate.
I always use a Chocolate melting pot because it keeps the chocolate at the perfect temperature for dipping and melting, and you don’t have to worry about reheating the chocolate or having it get hard too fast. Mine has been a lifesaver!
Dip clean, fresh strawberries into the chocolate by holding the stem, dipping almost the entire strawberry into the chocolate up to the green top, tapping off the excess chocolate, then placing on wax paper to cool. Repeat to fill the clamshell container.
Step 2. Once the chocolate is hard on the strawberries, place each berry in a mini baking cup. Place the baking cups inside the plastic container.
Step 3. Print out the free printable gift tags I created. Cut out a tag then punch a hole in the top.
Place a small doily on top of the container. Wrap some red twine or string around the container and doily, then tie a knot. Thread the end of the string through the gift tag, then tie a bow.
That’s it! Now you’ve got an easy teacher gift that I know your child’s teacher will love! You could also add a gift card to the top if you wanted to give a little something extra.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. For more crafts, projects, printables, and parties, I’d love for you to stop by my blog, Make Life Lovely, and say hi!
