Recipe for Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Honestly, these Gluten Free (and dairy free) Chocolate Covered Strawberries are so easy to make that I almost did not post this recipe.  But sometimes it is the simpler things that we enjoy most.

 

Like waking up to snow all over the ground.

Sometimes we have the time to prepare beautiful elaborate meals and treats. 

 

But other times, we have 15 minutes. 

 

I don’t think that these are any less special just because they are easy.  In fact, my family loves Chocolate Covered Strawberries.

 

So here is your really easy and quick recipe that will make everyone smile.

Ingredients

 

  • 1 pound strawberries with stems (the bigger the better) washed and dried very well
  • 6 ounces GF semisweet chocolate
  • Parchment paper

 

For the chocolate, I used Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Morsels that were sent to me by Enjoy Life.

I am a big fan of all of the Enjoy Life Chocolates for baking because they are not only good, but they are Certified Gluten Free.   They are also allergen friendly as they are dairy, nut and soy free! 

The Dark Chocolate Morsels worked particularly well with this recipe to give the strawberries an extra rich taste.   You can buy them online from Enjoy Life or you can order Enjoy Life Morsels Regular Sized Dark Chocolate -- 9 oz from Amazon.com.

 

Preparation

 

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

  • Rinse the strawberries and pat until completely dry.  Do not cut the stems off.
  • Heat the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl at 50 percent power for 1 minute.  Stir and heat at 50 percent power, stirring every 30 seconds, until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
