Here is the simplest recipe for Chocolate Covered Jimmy Strawberries.

Okay, I admit they don’t look as professional as Martha Stewart brand or Edible Arrangements brand, but they are so much fun and low cost/budget to make at home.


  • 21 Large Strawberries
  • 2 Cups approx, Dark Chocolate pieces (or leftover chocolate)
  • 3 tbsp Butter
  • 1 Cup Chocolate Jimmies


  1. Wash and dry strawberries with towel.
  2. Melt chocolate pieces in microwave on 50% power level till soft. Do not over micro. Add butter.
  3. Dip each strawberry holding the leaf stem into chocolate. Use a spoon to paste chocolate in left out spots.
  4. Immediately dip into the cup of jimmies and roll around.
  5. Place stem side down on tray.
  6. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
  7. Enjoy with Mom.

Here are some photos of the process:

    I used to have plain varyali but they stick to our teeth so dont have them. I used to have all the other things with it – like badam, kaju, chaar magaz etc. in Mumbai ages ago when I went on a visit there.

    By the way, in which State r u?

    I must say u r doing a good/great job for all of us. My hats off to u!

    Love Roshan Patel

    Yes, thats exactly what the jimmies look like. Of course they are made entirely of chocolate.

    I like Varyali, have you had roasted varyali? I roast raw varyali, add salt and enjoy them.

    Thanks Rita for your sweet explaination of Jimmies. I understand, v get them in Karachi, Pakistan too. I think they r multicoloured tiny varyali like things (sprinkles) that r put on cup cakes also

    Jimmy or Jimmies are little bits of chocolate sprinkles. We get them in US, probably you will find them in the icecream, cakes aisle. So I put the melted chocolate on the strawberries and dip them into the jimmies. See the photo, some are coated with jimmies and some without.
