Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, but that doesn’t mean you need to scramble for a last-minute gift! We have a simple and proven recipe for you to show your love to your loved ones. (Or, simply give us a call #773-275-8797 or visit us to buy some delicious beautiful vegan chocolate covered strawberries.) See below for the recipe.
1 Pound of Fresh Strawberries
6 Ounces of Dark Chocolate Chips (make sure it is vegan with organic sugar)
2 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil
*Parchment paper (wax paper)
First begin by washing your strawberries well, and then pat dry the strawberries using a paper towel. Once dried, refrigerate them while you melt your chocolate chips.
Pour your vegan chocolate chips into a microwavable ceramic or glass bowl. Add 2 tbsp. of coconut oil to the vegan chocolate chips and stir until all chocolate chips have been coated in coconut oil. Microwave the chocolate chips for 30 seconds, take the chocolate chips out and stir well. Microwave for another 30 seconds and stir again.
At this point, the chocolate chips might not be melted fully, but continue to stir and it will finish melting within the bowl.
Remove the strawberries from the refrigerator. Hold the strawberries carefully from the stem and begin to dip them into the chocolate bowl, they should be fully covered in chocolate. Carefully tap the strawberries on to the rim of the bowl to remove any excess chocolate drizzling down.
Line a tray or plate with parchment paper (wax paper) and place the strawberries on the lined tray or plate one by one. The parchment paper will prevent the strawberries from sticking on to the tray or plate. Now, refrigerate for a few minutes and enjoy with your loved ones!
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
