How long does chocolate covered strawberries last in the refrigerator?

The shelf life of refrigerated, chocolate-covered strawberries depends on how ripe the berries are at the time of dipping. Very ripe berries should be dipped 8 hours or less before serving and eaten with 24 hours. Less ripe berries will last 2-3 days in the refrigerator. To keep them from “sweating”, place a paper towel at the bottom of a storage container. Sprinkle baking soda on the paper towel and put the plate of berries in the container. Cover. The baking soda will absorb any extra moisture.
