Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup unsweetened chocolate (I used the Baker's brand)
  • 1/3 cup honey (or maple syrup, to taste)
  • 4 lbs. fresh strawberries (cleaned and greens removed)

Instructions

  • Slowly warm the chocolate in a small slow cooker or double boiler.
  • Once melted, stir in the oil and then the sweetener.
  • Dip your fresh strawberries (or other fruits) in the chocolate until covered.
  • Lay on a small, parchment lined cookie sheet or baking dish.
  • Place in the refrigerator for approximately 2 hours or until the chocolate hardens. You can also freeze overnight if you prefer frozen berries.
  • Remove from parchment paper and insert popsicle sticks to serve or transfer the berries to a gallon-sized ziplock bag.
  • Store in the fridge or freezer. (do not thaw if you freeze them. Keep them and eat them frozen.)
  • Not sweet enough for your tastes? Add more sweetener.
  • Too thick to really dip the berries? Stir in more oil until you get a nice consistency for dipping.
  • Too runny? Stir in more chocolate, a little at a time, until you get the thickness you want. Just be sure to melt completely before adding more.

  1. I just bought Enjoy Life Semi Sweet Mega Chunks and I think I’m going to try this! I like it because it’s dairy, nut, soy, and gluten free.The ingredients are Evaporated Cane Juice, Natural Chocolate Liquor (Non-Alcoholic), Non-Dairy Cocoa Butter. Tastes great and perfect when you need just a little chocolate. Not sure how clean all that is but I use it sparingly and like that there are so few ingredients! Have you tried it?

      Denise W – Yes, I have them myself. Those and the Sunspire brand are the closest you’ll get to clean. And like you say, if you use them in moderation, a little won’t hurt. Enjoy!
