Chocolate covered strawberries are one of my absolute favorite treats!  Not only for Valentine’s Day but really any time of the year.  And I have a pretty good idea that you may also love a deliciously dipped strawberry into sweet dark chocolate with fun different toppings sprinkled on top!  So, of course, I wanted to share How to Easily Make Healthy Chocolate Covered Strawberries with the Prettiest Toppings just in time for this love-inspired holiday. Not only are they delicious, they are simple to make and much healthier than the chocolate strawberries you buy at the store or bakery.

I have two different recipes for you to choose from, both are vegan, dairy-free and great options.  One is a bit easier I would say than the other, and the other one you’re making your own superfood chocolate!  The choice is yours – you can’t go wrong with either one!

Homemade Chocolate Covered Strawberries with toppings

Recipe One

(easier option in my opinion; plus the chocolate remains smoother)

Ingredients:

Toppings:

  • Coconut flakes
  • Crushed raw cashews
  • Mini vegan chocolate chips
  • Organic pastel sprinkles (purchased at Whole Foods)
  • Pomegranate powder
  • Dried culinary + edible rose petals (you can find at a local spice shop or order online)
  • Peanut Butter (sugar and oil free)
  • Candied ginger pieces

Directions:

  1. Wash strawberries and allow to thoroughly dry before dipping.
  2. Using a double boiler, melt chocolate over the stove until it becomes a smooth consistency.
  3. Stir often.
  4. Add in sea salt and cinnamon and stir well.
  5. Remove pot to another burner, and begin dipping your strawberries.
  6. Make sure to add your toppings quickly as the chocolate will begin to harden.
  7. I listed all the different toppings I used, but feel free to use any that sound fun to you!
  8. Place dipped strawberries on a cutting board (make sure will fit nicely in the fridge) with parchment paper on top and place in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes.
  9. Enjoy!  And share with your loved one or sweet friends and family!
