One 1 lb box of strawberries, stems left on, washed
Approx 3 oz (Dairy free) dark chocolate chips, I recommend Enjoy life brand for the best results with melting dairy free chocolate
Optional 3/4 tsp coconut oil (helps prevent drying out)
Feel free to double the recipe
You will need:
Sheet pan, lined with parchment paper
Pat the strawberries dry thoroughly- if they are moist the chocolate coating wont stick.
Mix the chocolate chips with the coconut oil. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or bain marie method or microwave at 30 sec increments, stirring the bottom between increments to prevent burning.
Pour the melted chocolate into a bowl if it’s not already in a bowl. Place the lined baking sheet on the table by the dried strawberries.
Hold the stem of a strawberry and dip it in the chocolate, then twist coming out. Let excess drip off. Place it on the parchment paper lined sheet pan. repeat with remaining strawberries.
Place in the fridge until set, about one hour.
