Fresh strawberries, washed and dried
Gluten-free chocolate chips or chopped chocolate
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil (if needed for smoother chocolate dipping)
Toppings of your choice (e.g., chopped nuts, coconut flakes, sprinkles, or sea salt)
Prepare a Baking Sheet:
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. This will prevent the chocolate-dipped strawberries from sticking to the surface.
Melt the Chocolate:
In a microwave-safe bowl or using a double boiler, melt the gluten-free chocolate chips or chopped chocolate. If the chocolate is too thick, you can add a tablespoon of vegetable oil and stir until smooth.
Dip the Strawberries:
Hold a strawberry by the stem and dip it into the melted chocolate, swirling it to coat about two-thirds of the strawberry. Allow any excess chocolate to drip off.
If desired, immediately sprinkle your chosen toppings over the chocolate while it’s still wet. You can use chopped nuts, coconut flakes, sprinkles, or a pinch of sea salt for a sweet and salty combination.
Place on the Baking Sheet:
Gently place the dipped strawberry onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat the process with the remaining strawberries.
Let Them Set:
Allow the chocolate-dipped strawberries to set at room temperature or in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes, or until the chocolate hardens.
Serve and Enjoy:
Once the chocolate has fully set, your chocolate-dipped strawberries are ready to serve. They make for an elegant and delicious gluten-free dessert.
Enjoy your homemade Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries as a delightful treat for any occasion!
