Dark Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

Want to make your family a relatively healthy dessert that looks special yet is really easy to make?
Chocolate dipped strawberries make a wonderful gluten free and vegan dessert

They look spectacular, taste delicious, and can be made in just minutes. ( follow my tutorial below)

All you need are some good looking strawberries and a bag of semi sweet chocolate chips ( Dairy Free) In fact, this can be a fun project to make with your kids or grandkids. I made these with my grandkids. These special treats delight both young and old.

I always feel that there is something very festive about chocolate covered strawberries. They are a perfect dessert that don't pack on the pounds.

So, why not make them for your next special occasion or the next time you are asked to bring a dessert to someone's house.

Dark Chocolate chips ( Dairy Free)

Wash a container of strawberries and dry really well ( that is the secret)
Place half a bag of chocolate chips in a microwaveable bowl and microwave for 1 minute.
Open microwave and stir.
Holding on to the stems, dip the dry strawberries in the melted chocolate.
Place on waxed paper.
When all strawberries have been dipped, place in refrigerator for about an hour.

Dry them very well

Place 1/2-3/4 of a bag of dark chocolate chips in small a microwave proof bowl

Microwave for about a minute. check and stir or use a double boiler to melt the chocolate chips
Refrigerate for at least an hour until the chocolate is hard... enjoy...Place on parchment paper to avoid sticking
