Easy Chocolate Covered Strawberries

If you are a chocolate lover like me, this is a quick and easy dairy- free recipe that will be sure to satisfy your sweet tooth! I use coconut oil in this chocolate recipe because I love the numerous benefits of it. Coconut oil contains medium-chain triglycerides which increase 24 hr. energy expenditure by as much as 5%, potentially leading to significant weight loss over the long term. So go ahead, eat more than one because you can feel guilt-free eating these delicious chocolate covered strawberries.

With Valentines Day right around the corner, skip the commercial roses and give your sweetheart something that you made with love.

1 dozen whole, fresh strawberries

1 cup of dairy free semi-sweet chocolate chunks (I used Enjoy Life)

1 tbs of organic coconut oil (I used Dr. Bronner’s)

Directions:

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Combine coconut oil and chocolate chunks on low heat in saucepan. Stir constantly until melted. Dip each strawberry into chocolate and place on parchment paper. Place in fridge for 15 minutes. Enjoy slowly with your loved one.
