These Chocolate Covered Strawberries are so much fun! Skip the candy store this Valentine’s Day and make your own chocolate covered strawberries for someone you love!
All you need are fresh strawberries (the larger the better), some good chocolate and a tablespoon of a neutral-flavored oil. For the strawberries, you’ll want some firm, bright red berries with leaves. Wash and dry them well (otherwise the chocolate won’t stick).
For the chocolate, any chocolate will work. My favorite chocolate is the Ghirardelli 60% Cacao bar or some semi-sweet chunks. For the oil, we used refined coconut oil with no coconut flavor. Another vegetable oil like avocado oil or light flavored olive oil would also be fine.
If you’re looking for another delicious chocolate dessert, check out my Dark Chocolate Tart. Also, if you have leftover melted chocolate, add a bit more coconut oil and turn it into Chocolate Shell Sauce for ice cream!
