My local supermarket had a wonderful deal on strawberries this week. Not only were they are good price, but they were HUGE!!!! My first thought when I saw them was..."These would be perfect for CHOCOLATE COVERED STRAWBERRIES!"
Since I didn't have any healthy chocolate in the house, I ended up using the Chocolate BASE I used for the SNICKERS BAR recipe (found here) and I came up with this super yummy treat!
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
5 TBS Coconut Oil, melted
4 TBS Cocoa Powder
2 Teaspoons Maple Syrup (I actually think I did a full Tablespoon)
1/8 Teaspoon Salt
8 LARGE Strawberries
Melt the oil over low heat on stovetop or in microwave. Remove from heat and stir in the rest of the ingredients until smooth. Dip each strawberry into the mixture (I dipped a few time to coat the berry well). Place on wax paper and place in refrigerator. In about 15 minutes, you will have a yummy treat your whole family will love.
