Ingredients & Substitutions
There are only 3 ingredients in this Vegan chocolate covered strawberries recipe so they are all important.
Use fresh ripe strawberries for best results. Look for strawberries that are a bright red color with no discoloration or bruised spots. Strawberries that are white around the stem are not sweet enough.
For the chocolate chips, use your favorite brand. For Vegan and dairy free, use a Vegan version. I love Enjoy Life dark chocolate chis because they are Vegan and melt well.
The coconut oil adds a nice shine to these berries. It also helps thin out the melted chocolate mixture. In addition, coconut oil is hardened when chilled so it allows the chocolate coating to harden quickly.
Chocolate is not naturally Vegan, but there are a handful of great options to buy. These brands all make Vegan chocolate chips.
Double check ingredients to ensure they are Vegan since some of these brands also make non Vegan varieties.
How to Make
First, wash strawberries. Dry them completely. Then, line a large plate or pan with parchment paper.
In a microwave safe dish, add dark chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave in 30 second increments, stopping to stir between each increment.
Once smooth and creamy, dip each strawberry into the melted chocolate mixture. Next, place on parchment paper.
Repeat process for all strawberries.
Place plate in fridge. Chill for at least 20 minutes or until chocolate coating has hardened.
Finally, serve Vegan chocolate covered strawberries!
Expert Tips & Tricks
Use fresh ripe strawberries for best results.
After washing, dry berries completely before dipping. Any extra water will prevent the chocolate coating from sticking.
When making the chocolate mixture, microwave only 30 seconds at a time. Then, stop and stir until smooth and creamy. Mine only needed 2 increments, for a total of 1 minute in the microwave.
Allow the chocolate coating to fully harden before serving.
How to Serve & Store
Serve Vegan chocolate covered strawberries once the chocolate coating has hardened completely.
Store in the fridge for up to 2 to 3 days. They are best eaten in the first 24 hours of making them.
While these strawberries freeze fine, they do not thaw well. The strawberries become mushy when thawing.
