Vegan Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Happy Valentine's Day!

Below is a great recipe from PETA, vegan friendly chocolate covered strawberries. Dip in!



Ingredients

1 cup (8 oz.) sweet, dark, dairy-free chocolate chips or pieces (see note)
2 lbs. fresh, long-stemmed strawberries



Directions

• Line a baking sheet with baking parchment or wax paper.
• In the top of a double boiler over boiling water, melt the chocolate, stirring occasionally. When melted, turn the heat down to a gentle simmer. Dip the strawberries halfway into the melted chocolate, then carefully transfer them to the baking sheet, spacing them an inch apart from each other. Let cool a bit before serving.

Note: There are many good brands of organic chocolate. We like Green and Black’s, Rapunzel, Dagoba, and Tropical Source.

Makes 24 servings
