These low-carb and keto chocolate covered strawberries are such a refreshing treat. They’re light, fruity, chocolaty, and so quick and simple to make.
Since this is a smaller recipe, we simply recommend melting the low-carb chocolate chips in the microwave in 30-second increments (to avoid burning the chocolate). Once it’s melted, just dip the strawberries and then put them in the fridge to cool. And that is it!
The trickiest part is dipping the strawberries. We found that large strawberries are difficult to dip due to weight. However, medium-size strawberries seem to work best. We use toothpicks to dip the strawberries, but you can use whatever method is easiest for you. Our philosophy is that they don’t have to look perfect, they just need to taste delicious!
- Get started: Wash and dry strawberries. Be sure strawberries are completely dry before dipping. Smash or chop peanuts with chopping knife and place in small bowl. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Melt chocolate: In a small bowl, heat chocolate chips and coconut oil in 30-second increments in microwave. After each 30-second increment, take out and stir. Stop this process as soon as chocolate chips stir to a smooth consistency.
- Dip: Insert a toothpick into the top of each strawberry. Dip each strawberry into the chocolate and slightly turn so chocolate wraps around strawberry as you pull up. Then, immediately dip each chocolate covered strawberry into the crushed peanuts (if desired). Place each strawberry on the parchment paper.
- Finish and serve: To set chocolate, leave strawberries at room temperature for 30 minutes or refrigerate for 15 minutes. Serve after chocolate has set.
Chocolate covered strawberries may be kept in a covered container in the refrigerator for a few days.
