Vegan Chocolate Covered Strawberries and a GIVEAWAY
It's less than a week before Valentine's Day and I'm already behind on sharing tasty dessert recipes for you. I've got some good stuff lined up! Today I'm sharing delicious vegan chocolate covered strawberries that you can whip up easy peasy. This would be especially fun to make with kids as there isn't any equipment required - just a parchment paper lined tray, a pot, bowl, and a whisk. At first glance it looks like I used white chocolate for these, but no, it's a coconut coating!
Also, if you haven't already, be sure to enter my amazing raw chocolate giveaway! See details later in this post
I've nicknamed these Zebra Berries! lol.
Vegan Chocolate Covered Strawberries
1 container of fresh strawberries
1 cup dark chocolate of your choice
2 teaspoons coconut oil
Melt the chocolate and oil in a bowl set over a pot of hot water on the stove (set to low heat).
1/4 cup melted coconut butter
1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
A few tablespoons of water
Optional: 1-2 drops of stevia (I don't think it needs it though as the coconut butter is naturally sweet).
Whisk all ingredients together until smooth starting with 1 tablespoon of water and adding a bit more at a time while whisking. Its ready when the mixture is smooth. For dipping purposes, keep the mixture just warm enough to keep it fluid. If it cools down too much and starts thickening, place it into a bowl of hot water while whisking just long enough to make it smooth again.
Assembly Version #1: Chocolate with coconut
Dip a strawberry into the melted chocolate and then place it on a parchment paper lined tray. Repeat. Place into the fridge. When the chocolate is set, drizzle the coconut coating over each one and place it back into the fridge to harden. Optional: sprinkle with beet root powder as I have in the photos.
Assembly Version #2: Coconut with chocolate
Dip a strawberry into the coconut coating and then place it on a parchment paper lined tray. Place in the fridge until it firms up and then drizzle melted chocolate on top. Set in the fridge.
If you haven't already, make sure to hop over to my last post HERE to enter my Raw Chocolate Giveaway! I've teamed up with Rawmio to bring you some incredible treats for Valentine's Day. This is a really generous giveaway guys! I'm SO exited for whoever wins.
They're giving one of my lucky readers a whole big tray of their brand NEW filled raw chocolate hearts - yes 54 hearts!!! I
The winner will also receive a jar of Rawmio's raw superfood spread which I've tried and is really delicious!
You can ENTER in my last post HERE.
The only thing I did beside eating most of the superfood spread straight from the jar was to make these raw chocolate cups! The spread is mostly made of stone ground almond butter along with goji berries, hemp, chia, and sweetened with coconut sugar. For the filling I simply mixed it with melted coconut butter (almost equal parts).
Okay, now go and make the chocolate covered strawberries!!!
Wishing you a great rest of the week 🙂
