Raw Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Who doesn’t love chocolate covered strawberries? I can’t believe I haven’t thought about doing a healthy version of this earlier!

(recipe from Rawfoodrecipes.com)

2 tbls Raw Coconut Oil, melted
1/4 c Cacao Powder
1 1/2 tbls Agave Nectar
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
10 organic strawberries

1) In a bowl, blend all the ingredients in the order above.  If the chocolate becomes too thick, put the glass bowl in a warm water bath to re-melt the coconut oil.
2) Holding the strawberry firmly by the stem dip 3/4 of the strawberry in the chocolate sauce.  Rotate in the chocolate but do not completely cover as you want to show a bit of the red from the strawberry.
3) Place a piece of wax paper on a cutting board for all the chocolate dipped strawberries to lay.
4) Pop in the freezer for 3-5 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.

The presentation may not be the most beautiful. I think my chocolate mix was not warm enough so the coconut oil became more of a thicker consistency. If I need to be conscious of presentation next time, I would make sure to remelt the oil. Regardless, this tasted de-lish. Had a great darkish chocolate taste.
