Not only is it gluten-free and vegan, but it's also sugar-free, making it keto-friendly for those on a low-carb diet.
- 1/2 cup of dairy and sugar-free dark chocolate chips . We used sugar free dark chocolate chips by Camino brand as these 100% Cacao and were top 14 allergen free (including dairy, gluten, peanut and tree nuts). While it's possible to use white chocolate chips, we couldn't find any that were sugar-free.
- Fresh strawberries, washed and dried. Ensure they are ripe strawberries for the best flavor.
- Optional: 1/2 tbsp of coconut oil or Wowbutter for creamy texture.
- Microwave safe bowl.
- Parchment paper.
- Cocktail skewers.
- Preparation: Begin by preparing your strawberries. Cut off the green part and slice them in half. This will make it easier for dipping and give you more chocolate-covered surface to enjoy. A flat surface also enables easy placement of these on parchment paper.
- Melting Chocolate: In a microwave-safe bowl, place your sugar-free dark chocolate chips. If you feel like adding a little twist, mix in some chocolate chips and coconut oil for a smoother texture. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until the melting chocolate is smooth and creamy.
- Dipping Process: Once your chocolate is melted, it's time to dip! Hold a strawberry by the skewer and gently dip the strawberry into the chocolate, ensuring it's coated evenly.
- Setting: Place the chocolate dipped strawberries on a tray lined with parchment paper. This helps in easy removal once set.
- Chilling: Refrigerate the strawberries for about 10 minutes or until the chocolate has solidified. One indication for solidifications is that the chocolate surface becomes non-reflective.
- Serving: Once chilled, they're ready to be served! Feel free to enjoy life and share these delightful treats with loved ones, especially on special occasions like Valentine's Day.
