If you think going vegan or giving up dairy means that you have to give up chocolate covered strawberries, or even desserts in general, you are so wrong! You can quickly, easily make inexpensive, dairy-free chocolate covered fruit at home in just a few minutes. You don't have to be a cook to make these and you can have the kids help out too.
Plus, these are way cheaper than the ones you buy at one of those chocolate stores in the mall or a restaurant. Who wants to spend $3 or more on one chocolate covered strawberry anyway? My local Kroger grocery store has 2 pound packs of strawberries on sale this week for $3.
Nondairy chocolate chips (usually the organic store brand ones, Enjoy Life, Ghirardeli semi-sweet are all nondairy)
1. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave, stopping to stir them every 30 seconds or so so they do not burn OR melt them in a double boiler.
2. Dip your strawberries in the chocolate or twirl them and set on a piece of wax paper or parchment paper to dry.
