Paleo Dark Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

These strawberries are a treat, but if you use good dark chocolate, it’s not too bad. Whether covered, dipped, or as part of a dark chocolate bar, dark chocolate fruit has always been a favorite of many. Dark chocolate, in moderation of course, is actually good for you and is loaded with antioxidants.
Scrambling to put together a sweet treat for Valentine’s Day? Well, even if you’re not, dark chocolate-covered strawberries are a relatively guilt-free little indulgence for any special occasion. Chocolate-dipped strawberries are the classic Valentine’s Day treat. You can also dip dried fruits, shortbread, even marshmallows.
  • 12 large long-stemmed strawberries
  • 4 oz. bar of dark chocolate
  • 2 tsp coconut butter
Rinse and thoroughly pat dry all your strawberries. Next, break the dark chocolate bar up into small chunks and place them in a small bowl.
Melt the chocolate and coconut butter over a double boiler on low. Just dip each strawberry into the melted chocolate and lay out on a piece of wax paper. Holding the strawberries by their stems, dip them into the chocolate so they are about three-quarters covered. Place in the fridge to set and refrigerate until you’re ready to serve. Enjoy!
