✎ Recipe Notes
- Stored at room temperature for up to 12 hours. Any longer and I recommend storing them in the refrigerator in an airtight container in a single layer so they don't touch.
- They last up to 48 hours in the fridge but are best when consumed the day of.
- Do not freeze them as the strawberries will lose their texture when thawed.
- Place the Christmas strawberries in holiday cupcake liners for extra protection and a festive presentation.
- Place them in a cookie tin or box and store them in the fridge until ready to gift. Avoid warm areas that can melt the chocolate.
