Chocolate Covered Strawberries Recipe
- 6 ounces of chocolate I use Trader Joes 72% dark chocolate bar
- 2 teaspoons coconut oil or any oil you prefer
- 16 ounces strawberries 15-25 depending on their size
Wash strawberries and lay out to dry on a clean dish towel. Be sure they are super dry before dipping them in the chocolate.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat and set aside.
Bring a couple inches of water to a boil in the bottom of a small saucepan, then reduce down to a simmer. Place any bowl that will fit on top of the pot without touching the water on the bottom to create a double boiler.
Break the chocolate into small chunks and add to the bowl with the coconut oil. Stir occasionally until the chocolate has melted down
Carefully remove the bowl from you double boiler and gently hold a strawberry by the greens and dip into the melted chocolate. Allow excess chocolate to drip off and then place strawberry on your baking sheet and repeat until you have finished all the berries.
Place strawberries into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to set up and then transfer into an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
*Chocolate covered strawberries are most delicious once they are closer to room temperature. Try taking your strawberries out of the fridge at least 15 minutes before serving.
**If you have any extra melted chocolate in your bowl, don’t throw it away. You can dip nuts, dried fruits, pretzels, etc. in the leftover, so look through your cabinets and enjoy.
