Chocolate strawberries

Hands up if you love chocolate? But wouldn’t it be good if it was good for you? I haveĀ some news….it is, if you eat the right type šŸ™‚ Music to your ears right?

The tip is to go for dark chocolate, rich in cacao as this is where the goodness liesĀ but the higher the percentage of cacao,Ā the better.Ā  Not only does this meanĀ it willĀ have a higher content of antioxidants and magnesium,Ā it will alsoĀ contain less sugar.Ā  If you are used to eating milk chocolate you may want to start off with 50% cacao and work your way up but once you have got used to that bitter taste you’ll find you can go darker, and you may even find you’ll be able to tolerate 100% pure cacao like I used in this recipe šŸ™‚

I love chocolate but strawberriesĀ dipped inĀ chocolate is even more dreamy! Plus you get double the health benefits from the strawberries too which are a great source of vitamin C which helps to boost the immune system and promote healthy skin.Ā  TheyĀ make a great ‘guilt free’ snack when craving something sweet and take less than 5 minutes to prepare.

  • All you need to doĀ isĀ break up a bar of dark chocolate in to a glass bowl and placeĀ it over a saucepan of water.
  • Bring to the boil until theĀ chocolateĀ melts.
  • Dip the strawberries in to the chocolateĀ and place in the fridge to set for a few hours.Ā  You can even sprinkle some desiccated coconut or crushed almonds on to the chocolate too if you fancy it šŸ™‚

There are so manyĀ good brandsĀ ofĀ dark chocolate but my favourites for this type of recipe includeĀ Conscious Chocolate, Seed and Bean, Raw Halo or Madecasse which I used for this recipe.
