Chocolate Covered Strawberries

This dessert recipe is the perfect combination of bitter and sweet.

Chocolate covered strawberries on a plate
2 lbs Strawberries with stems
2 cups Dark chocolate (chopped)
2 tsp Coconut oil
1/2 cup Ground pistachios

Wash and dry the strawberries and set aside. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place the chocolate into a heat-proof bowl and place over a pot filled halfway with water. Heat the pot over medium heat.

Add the coconut oil to the chocolate and stir until melted.

Dip the each dry strawberry into the chocolate 3/4 of the way up and place on the parchment to set.

Once all of the strawberries have been dipped and the chocolate has set slightly, sprinkle with the pistachio dust.

Let set completely at room temperature and serve.


The natural sugar in strawberries is the perfect way to cut the bitterness in dark chocolate. Top off this classic Valentine's Day treat with pistachios for added health benefits (and crunch!).
