Chocolate covered strawberries (vegan, dairy-free, nut-free)

It is always the saddest feeling when you bite into the first strawberry of a big box and taste…nothing. No flavor. No sweetness. Nada. Those deceptively vibrant berries lured you in (likely when they’re not in season) and now you’re left with a whole box. PLEASE do not throw them out. There is always a way to make them worthwhile. One of my favorite ways to turn a dull berry into a delicious berry is chocolate.

Now, of course you can melt some dark chocolate and dip away, but that gets messy and requires a microwave. I love to make my own chocolate dip and you only need a few ingredients!

Chocolate dip:

-3 tbsp cocoa powder (Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa Powder will change your life)

-3 packets stevia, or sweetener of choice

-1 tsp coconut oil (I recommend Artisana Organics)

  1. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix well
  2. Add in 1 tbsp of hot water and stir, repeat and add additional tablespoons of water until the consistency is thick and dip-like. I usually use 3-4 tbsp of water.
  3. Dip your woebegone strawberries in your delicious, rich chocolate dip and enjoy!
