Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤️
This is such a sweet day and one to be shared with those we appreciate and love. Though we should spread and share love (for ourself and others) everyday, this is a great day to reflect and appreciate those in our lives.
When It comes to sharing and spreading love, one of the things that I enjoy most is sharing moments and gifts from the kitchen. I love cooking with my honey, making gifts from the heart and sharing food that nourished the body and soul.
If you’re still looking for a gift idea, want to plan a fun activity with the kiddos or you’re looking for a tasty treat to cook up this weekend, these strawberries are a great idea. Not only are they delicious and healthy, but they are super simple to make. I love to keep it simple in the kitchen.
I welcome you to try them for yourself and add any variations that you enjoy. There are a variety of topping options. Have fun with it and spread the love of sweet treats! ❤️
Wishing you a heartfelt day! ❤️
Dark Chocolate Covered Strawberries
1 Container of Strawberries
1 Bag Dark Chocolate Chips
2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
Optional Toppings: Chopped nuts, shredded coconut, sugar free sprinkles, etc
Line a platter or dish of choice with parchment paper.
Rinse and pat dry the strawberries. Make sure they are thoroughly dried.
In a small pan, over low-medium heat, combine chocolate chips and coconut oil.
While cooking, continue stirring the chocolate combination until completely melted.
Dip dried strawberries into warm chocolate and place them on the prepared sheet. If you choose to add toppings, do so while the chocolate is still warm. Keep stirring while dipping until you’ve covered all of your strawberries.
Refrigerate until chocolate is set. Once chilled, remove the strawberries from the parchment paper and serve on a platter of choice. Enjoy!
