Seriously this is probably my most favorite dessert ever, Dark Chocolate Strawberries. There is something about the flavor of dark chocolate combined with the sweet, juicy taste of a plump organic strawberry that just makes you feel all giddy inside. I love this time of year when the fruit is so plentiful and amazing in taste. These are so simple to make.
Place 1 cup of dark chocolate chips over a double broiler. You can use semi sweet but I prefer dark. Make sure the water just simmers and does not boil.
While the chocolate is melting take out your strawberries and wash them good. Strawberries are heavily sprayed with pesticides so I would suggest buying them organic if you can.
I cut the top off so I can just throw the whole strawberry in my mouth. Plus I think it is really hard to wash the stems and goodness knows what has touched those stems
Add 1 Tablespoon of coconut oil to your melting chocolate and stir.
Place some parchment paper on your counter so you can lay the dipped strawberries on it.
If you have any popsicle sticks or cake pop sticks handy I would use these to puncture the strawberry with so they are easy to dip in the chocolate. You can also use a fork or your fingers its just a lot more messy.
Stir the chocolate good and then dip away. You can grind up some nuts and roll these in nuts after you dip them as well. Yummy. I have also added raspberry extract to the melted chocolate before. YUMMY
PS these are my go to dessert while doing the 21 Day Fix.
