Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

By Alisa Fleming

Take juicy, red strawberries and add dollops of your favorite sensuous, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate and what do you end up with? One of the most palate-pleasing aphrodisiacs in the world — and an arrow for Cupid’s bow.

So go on: surprise your sweetheart this Valentine’s day with a classic, decadent dessert. With just a few simple ingredients you can create these lovely bites for 2.

 

Method

  1. Put 2 tablespoons allergy-friendly semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips in a small bowl and heat in microwave on High.
  2. Stir in 2 tablespoons sunflower seed butter and 1 teaspoon coconut oil and microwave on High for 15 seconds. Whisk until smooth.
  3. Hold strawberry by the stem and dip in chocolate mixture. Place on parchment paper in freezer to firm up.
  4. Repeat with more strawberries, thick banana slices or fully dunk raspberries or blueberries.
