Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Does anyone have a tried and true recipe?

This seems like a perfect LC Easter dessert.

I wasn't happy with my last chocolate dipping sauce.

I just melt hershey's sf chocolate chips and dip the strawberries in the melted chocolate, or drizzle the chocolate over them if you want less chocolate per strawberry. You can add a drop or two of oil if the chocolate is not thin enough to suit. You can also use a sf dark chocolate bar the same way.

Hi Barbo, I use any low carb chocolate but we don't dip them. I mix mascarone cheese with liquid sweetner (to taste). Sometimes I put grated orange peel in the cheese also. Then I cut a slit in the strawberry and fill with the cheese mixture. Next I drizzle the melted chocolate over it. I use different chocolates, sometimes white and chocolate or all chocolate. Sometimes orange flavored if I can find it. We love these and are having them for Easter dessert this year.

I like to use Dove 71% cocoa chocolate bars and melt in a chocolate melter and then dip.

There's also a recipe on here called Stuffed Strawberries that is like Wishin's method. I like it too.

I just made these up because the strawberries needed to be eaten and it sounded yummy. Quick, easy and delicious!!

I bar of Lindt 70-90% cocoa or your favorite chocolate bar
Splenda to sweeten or your favorite sweetener
1 1/2 tsp coconut oil
Strawberries with stems attached

Melt in microwave in 10 second increments until melted.
Dip strawberries into the chocolate and lay on waxed paper to harden.

Enjoy!
