This technique works great with other freeze dried fruit powders and different silicone molds, like our peach mango white chocolate flowers!
How to make strawberry white chocolate hearts
Our strawberry white chocolates are super easy to make! Just a few steps to make these allergy friendly chocolates:
- Grind some freeze dried strawberries into powder in a small blender or food processor (we use a NutriBullet).
- Melt your dairy free white chocolate, this is easier using a double boiler method than a microwave. We use the Nestle Simply Delicious white chocolate chips. I just use a heat-safe bowl inside a saucepan with a little water.
- Once your white chocolate has melted, allow it to cool. It will be liquid still but not hot.
- Whisk in your strawberry powder.
- Pour into heart shaped silicone molds, chill until set. Then store in an airtight container.
It takes a little time to melt the white chocolate and chill to set everything, but overall it’s a very simple process and is super easy to make.
Some people don’t like the taste of the Nestle Simply Delicious white chocolate chips. We don’t mind them, but if you don’t like the taste of that brand, Pascha makes rice milk white chocolate you can use instead, and No Whey! makes a dairy free white chocolate as well.
Variations for our strawberry white chocolate
There are quite a few ways to make this recipe a little bit different if you want to try some fun variations!
If you’d like to add a little more holiday decoration to these for Valentine’s Day, you can sprinkle on some pink and white sprinkles onto the top of the chocolate before it sets. Or mix the sprinkles in with the chocolate before you pour it into the mold for a little crunch in your chocolate.
We used these really simple heart shaped silicone molds from Walmart for our white chocolate hearts, but you can have fun with it and use candy molds in different shapes like flowers or emojis.
You can even pour this chocolate into strawberry molds for a fun spring party treat or Mother’s Day gift!
Another fun way to make these a little different is by covering them with a layer of dark chocolate after the white chocolate has set so they’ll look like a layered chocolate truffle.
If you’d like to make these strawberry chocolates sugar free, you can make your own dairy free and sugar free white chocolate to use in this recipe. So far I haven’t found a dairy free and sugar free white chocolate available for sale.
Peach and mango white chocolates
We recently tried this same method using freeze dried peach and mango slices mixed together then powdered for a fun Easter/spring variation!
We poured the peach and mango white chocolate into flower silicone molds to make some pretty light yellow flower chocolates with a light fruity flavor.

Strawberry White Chocolate Hearts (Dairy Free)
- ½ cup dairy free and allergy friendly white chocolate chips (I used the Nestle brand)
- ⅓ cup freeze dried strawberries
- Put freeze dried strawberries in a food processor or blender and process until powdered. You won't use all the powder, just set aside 1 Tablespoon of powder.
- Melt the white chocolate in the microwave in 40 second increments until melted, or melt using the double boiler method. I use a bowl inside a saucepan with a little water, this seems to work better than the microwave.
- Once melted, remove the white chocolate from the heat and allow the white chocolate to cool for about 20 minutes. It should still be liquid but not hot.
- Whisk 1 Tablespoon of strawberry powder into the white chocolate and pour into silicone heart molds.
- Refrigerate until set, then store and serve at room temperature.
