Everyone loves a chocolate covered strawberry, and now you can share a totally dairy-free version, made with just three ingredients.

Also, use the best strawberries you can find–the combination of ripe strawberries and delicious dark chocolate is a match made in heaven!

How to Make Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Making the Vegan Dipping Chocolate
To make a simple vegan melting chocolate, you only need two ingredients!
The best dark chocolate chips you can fine, with some coconut oil mixed in to help the chocolate stay together when you bite into the strawberries.
If you’ve ever had a chocolate covered strawberry that crumbled to pieces after the first bite, you know how important this is!
Dipping Vegan Chocolate Strawberries
To begin, rinse your strawberries and then pat them dry very well–you don’t want any amount of moisture left on them because the chocolate will not stick well if there is.
Line a baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.
Place the chocolate chips and the coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 30 second increments, mixing in between, until smooth.
Holding the stem of a strawberry, dip it into the chocolate mixture, swirl it around to coat as high as you can, then pull up and transfer to prepared pan to set. Some stems may be weaker on some strawberries, you can always hold the top of the berry instead, you just won’t get coating all the way up to the top, which is okay too!
Place in the fridge to set (at least 15-30 minutes), then enjoy!
