Happy Valentine’s Day!
One of my favorite Valentine’s Day treats (or any day for that matter) is chocolate covered strawberries. Until I began my Meatless Monday journey I never gave much thought to what type of chocolate I used to make these delicacies. But I have learned that even non-dairy eaters can enjoy chocolate covered strawberries, by using vegan chocolate! So whether you prefer a vegan or more traditional lifestyle (try Hershey’s) you can enjoy this recipe.
Vegan Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
4 ounces (about 3/4 cup) 365 Everyday Value® Semi-Sweet Vegan Chocolate Chips
Line a plate with wax paper or parchment. Place chocolate chips in a glass bowl or measuring cup and microwave on high, 1 to 2 minutes, or until melted and very smooth, stopping to stir about every 20 seconds. One at a time, dip strawberries into melted chocolate and place on the prepared plate. Refrigerate about 10 minutes to harden. Store covered and refrigerated up to 1 day.
