Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Chocolate Covered Strawberries are the best dessert. This recipe is fancy and romantic, but super easy to make and they turn out perfect every time.
Servings 8 servings
- 2 pounds strawberries the bigger and redder, the better (I always buy organic)
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
If you wash your strawberries, be sure that they are 100% dry. To do this, you can lay them on a clean dish towel on the counter and rotate a few times to let the air dry them.
To melt the chocolate, combine the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a glass measuring cup (or some other kind of microwave save dish). Microwave on 50% power for one minute. Stir. Repeat until melted. Mine took 2min 30sec to melt.
Line a baking sheet or your counter with parchment paper. One at a time, gently hold the strawberry by the leaves and dip them in the chocolate. Allow as much chocolate as possible to drip off back into the glass. Set the strawberry on the parchment to dry at room temperature.
Makes about 24 strawberries (depending on the size of your berries).
