We are in the LOVING spirit over here! To celebrate, we’ve created a dreamy chocolate covered strawberries recipe for you to dream up in your kitchen and share with your loves. Not only does cacao provide that addictively yummy chocolatey flavor, this star superfood also ignites your body’s joy and pleasure centers, elevating your senses and opening your heart.
This recipe uses our Cacao Magic Superfood Blend for even extra mood-balancing and energizing properties with a rich chocolate flavor. Chocolate covered strawberries make a pretty, bite-size dessert that everyone loves. They are beautiful and tasty, but also incredibly simple.
1 pint fresh strawberries
1 (10-ounce) package chocolate chips (semi-sweet, milk, vegan)
¾ cup Coconut Magic (or coconut butter of choice)
¼ cup Cacao Magic
1 teaspoon coconut oil
Cacao nibs & salt for decoration (optional)
Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, top with a wire rack and set aside. Line another baking sheet with parchment paper to use for cooling the dipped strawberries. If using any optional toppings, place those onto individual small plates.
Wash strawberries and then pat dry with paper towels and arrange on the wire rack to completely air dry to make sure chocolate adheres perfectly.
Add chocolate cups to medium microwave-safe bowl. Heat at 50% power in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval. Repeat until the chocolate is all melted and smooth. Set aside.
Using a microwave, small pot or double boiler, melt Coconut Magic (or coconut butter) to a liquid. This should be done on low heat to ensure it doesn’t burn. Stir in Cacao Magic and coconut oil. Whisk together chocolate in one bowl.
Hold each strawberry by the stem and dip into the melted chocolate. Then sprinkle on cacao nibs & salt if desired. Serve once the chocolate has hardened or store in the refrigerator. ENJOY!
