Clean Valentines Day Chocolate Covered Strawberries

berryIngredients

20 whole strawberries
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 tablespoon coconut oil

Directions

Add 1/2 cup water to bottom double boiler and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Add chocolate chips and coconut oil to the top boiler and stir until smooth and completely melted. Remove chocolate from heat and set aside.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. While holding strawberries by the leaves, dip into the chocolate. Lift and allow the excess chocolate to drip off. Set strawberries on parchment paper until all strawberries are covered.

Put the Strawberries into the fridge for about 30 minutes.

NOTE: Don;t have a double boiler? Make your own.

The best way to melt chocolate without a double boiler is to use a sauce pan with some water in in and then put your chocolate into a glass bowl on top of the sauce pan, your own homemade double boiler. you can also use a metal bowl or another sauce pan, just so your chocolate is suspended above the hot water. I’ve done this many times and it works great
