“Paleo” Dark Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

Scrambling to put together a sweet treat for Valentine’s Day? Well, even if you’re not, dark chocolate covered strawberries are a relatively guilt-free little indulgence for any special occasion (or dinner party!).  They couldn’t be simpler to make – I hesitate to even call it a “recipe.” :) Hope you like ‘em!

‘Paleo’ Dark Chocolate-Covered Strawberries
Quantity: 12 strawberries
Time:
15 minutes
Paleo Grade:
C (it’s a treat, but if you use good dark choco, it’s not too bad!)
Vegetarian Adaptation:
None needed!

  • 12 large long-stemmed strawberries
  • 1 3.5 oz. bar of dark chocolate (I used Ghirardelli 86% this time – yum.)
  1. Rinse and thoroughly pat dry all your strawberries… set aside.
  2. Next, break the dark chocolate bar up into small chunks and place them in a small bowl.
  3. Time to melt the chocolate! Feel free to use a double boiler if you like, but I prefer microwaving for 30 seconds at a time, stirring between each burst. Microwave until just melted, being careful not to scorch.
  4. When it’s good and melty, just dip each strawberry and lay out on a piece of wax paper (on a plate). When you’ve dipped ‘em all, just place in the fridge to set!
  5. Refrigerate until you’re ready to serve and enjoy! Happy munching!
