If ever there was a vegan dessert that was easier than the rest, this is it. This recipe in all honesty needs no recipe, it’s just too classic and easy, and you can do whatever you want with it! Jess had some left over strawberries and delicious vegan chocolate chips so we knew what we had to do, no questions asked. The great thing about these is you can have them plain, just with the chocolate, rolled in nuts or whatever you want! How do you like your chocolate covered strawberries?
We thought we’d spice ours up a bit by rolling them in chopped candied pecans and holy crap, we almost didn’t have enough pecans to use because after we candied the pecans they were just too good to stop eating. But make sure you try and save some for the recipe cause they were fab with the strawberries too.
This recipe is the first of many of Jess’s wingin’ it recipes. Sort of just make it up as you go and use as much of each ingredient as you need.
- Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips
- *Candied Pecans for topping
- Constantly stir the chocolate in a heat safe bowl over boiling water. (probably a good idea to use a metal or wooden spoon, instead of plastic or rubber like we did. It wasn’t pretty.)
- After rinsing and drying the strawberries dip in melted chocolate and place on sheet of wax paper to cool.
- If you want to add toppings dip the strawberries in the topping after dipping the strawberries in the chocolate and before the chocolate cools.
Love love love these. Simple easy and fun to make! I love that you can do whatever you want with this recipe. Jess and I tried these with just the chocolate and also rolled in the candied pecans and I looooved them with the pecans. So good. Wish we had made more cause they were so awesome. It was a little tedious waiting for the chocolate to melt properly but I think mostly cause I was just excited to eat it. Also be careful when melting the chocolate, it has to be constantly monitored and stirred, and don’t use a plastic spatula!
Chocolate covered strawberries were always such a treat for me. I remember paying like $1.50+ at fancy chocolate shops for just one. It got to a point where I decided it was time to figure out how to do it myself. This is the first of the “wingin’ it” recipes. I never make them the same, I never measure out anything, I just go with it. This one gets a biased A+ from me, delicious!
