  • 1 pound of fresh strawberries
  • 8 ounces of dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil (optional)
  • Sprinkles, chopped nuts, or other toppings of your choice

Cooking Instructions

  1. Rinse the strawberries under cold water and pat them dry with a paper towel.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the chocolate chips in 30-second increments until they are completely melted, stirring after each interval. If the chocolate is too thick, add a tablespoon of coconut oil to thin it out.
  3. Hold each strawberry by the stem and dip it into the melted chocolate, making sure to cover it completely.
  4. Place the chocolate-covered strawberries onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  5. While the chocolate is still wet, sprinkle your desired toppings over the strawberries.
  6. Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes or until the chocolate has hardened.
  7. Serve the Chocolate Covered Strawberries chilled and enjoy!
