Ingredients
  • 1-2 lb (*see note) large strawberries, washed & thoroughly dried
  • ½ cup (75 grams) raw cacao butter (**I recommend Sunfood Superfoods)
  • ¼ cup raw cacao powder (**I recommend Holy Kakow)
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup (I used Costco Organic Amber Grade A)
  • Optional toppings: unsweetened cacao nibs (my favorite!), unsweetened shredded coconut, raw shelled hemp seeds, finely chopped nuts (such as pecans, walnuts, peanuts, almonds, or macadamia nuts)
Instructions
  1. Find a small metal mixing bowl that will fit over a small saucepan. Fill the saucepan with an inch or two of water and bring to a boil. Place the mixing bowl over the top to create a double broiler.
  2. Add cacao butter to metal mixing bowl. The cacao butter will slowly melt. Be careful not to let any water drop into the cacao butter.
  3. Once the cacao butter has melted, whisk in the maple syrup and cacao powder until no lumps remain.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Dip strawberries into chocolate and transfer to lined baking sheet. Sprinkle immediately with optional toppings.
  5. Cool in refrigerator at least 1 hour or until chocolate has hardened.
Notes
*Once the chocolate sauce starts running low, it is more challenging to make the dipped strawberries look pretty. If you care about appearance, use just 1 lb of strawberries, then to use up the rest of the chocolate, drop nuts/seeds into remaining chocolate and cool on parchment-lined baking sheet. If taste is more important to you, then buy 2 lbs of strawberries and use the chocolate to make as many dipped strawberries as you can!

**Quality of ingredients is very important in this recipe. Higher quality cacao powder and cacao butter will yield more robust flavor.
