Raw Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Hearts-8

Happy Valentine’s Day!!! I hope you all have been enjoying the beautiful weather and with Valentine’s Day around the corner, I know your planning on some kind of outside fun in the sun this weekend. I sure am. This is one of my favorite months out of the year as it’s all about love. We are encouraged a little more to love our bodies, practice self-care, and of course indulge in chocolate! It doesn’t get much better than that.

Lately, I’ve been experimenting with homemade chocolate. I’ve made different variations using cocoa butter, coconut oil, raw cacao powder, vanilla, natural sweeteners, and nut butter. So far even the mess-ups have been a success. I can’t wait to share what I’ve been creating, especially for all you chocolate lovers. Right now I’m super excited to share these sweet treats, just in the nick of time too. Raw Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Hearts, made with love.

The twist with these chocolate-dipped strawberries is that they are shaped in small bite-size hearts. They are quite simple to make once you get an idea of what you’re doing. Just cut the strawberry in half, using a toothpick, stick both pieces together. Simple as that. Depending on the strawberry you might need to trim a little bit of the edge on each side where they touch.

After you have all your strawberries assembled, it’s time to make your chocolate. For this recipe, you will need it.

Also toothpicks, parchment paper, and a wide bowl. This recipe made about 12 hearts, I can’t give you the for sure amount as I couldn’t help eat a couple as I was dipping them. 

Don’t have a Valentine, well no worries, that’s just more for you to enjoy! Believe me, they will be gone before you know it.
