Quick post today, but these amazing dark chocolate covered strawberries deserve their own post whether they’re easy or not.
If you’ve ever made chocolate covered anything before, you know that it’s sometimes hard to get the chocolate thin enough to create a smooth coating. The trick is to use a bit of organic palm shortening (or Crisco, but seriously, don’t touch that with a ten food pole) when melting the chocolate.
You can roll the dunked strawberries in unsweetened shredded coconut (shown), crushed peanuts or almonds, of, if you’re really feeling crazy, sprinkles. Who doesn’t LOVE chocolate covered strawberries? These make a great treat for Valentine’s Day!
Sugar Free Chocolate Covered Strawberries
- 12 clean, fresh strawberries (make sure they’re dry)
- 6 T sugar free dark chocolate chips (I used Hershey’s)
- 1/2 T organic non-hydrogenated palm shortening (I used Spectrum)
