Description

These peanut butter chocolate dipped strawberries are an easy to make dessert for Valentine’s Day, or for any peanut butter lover.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 12 large strawberries, rinsed and dried
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter (the runny kind)
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (can also use dark chocolate chips)

Instructions

  1. Wash and dry strawberries, leaving tops intact.
  2. Microwave peanut butter in microwave-safe bowl for 20-30 seconds, or until warmed and runny.
  3. Dip a large spoon in peanut butter. Roll each strawberry in spoon to cover.
  4. Place strawberries on cooling rack, and store in freezer at least 20 minutes, or until peanut butter has hardened.
  5. When peanut butter has hardened, add chocolate chips to a microwave-safe bowl, and heat for 30 seconds. Stir, and continue heating in 30 second increments until it has fully melted. Let cool for 1 minute.
  6. Using a spoon to facilitate, coat each strawberry in chocolate, and  enjoy immediately, or refrigerate for up to 2 days.

Notes

  • Use a fork to pierce strawberry to help with coating.
  • If you want your chocolate and/or peanut butter to be a little more runny and glossy, add a teaspoon of melted coconut oil to each after heating.
  • You can make these vegan-friendly by using dairy-free chocolate chips.
