Dark Chocolate Dipped Strawberries:

YIELD: 6 Strawberries
PREP TIME: 10 minutes
TOTAL TIME: About a 1/2 hour to an hour (to let the chocolate cool and harden)

6 strawberries
1 bamboo stick or fork (if strawberries are not long stemmed)
parchment paper
½ cup non-dairy dark chocolate
1 tbsp coconut milk (optional)
toppings of your choosing: chopped nuts, chopped mango, seeds, sprinkles, truffle salt, crushed pretzels, chopped vegan marshmallows

Rinse strawberries with alkaline water or a ½ cap of apple cider vinegar and tap water.  (This keeps the strawberries fresher and kills mold spores and other bacteria.)  Boil about two inches of water in a saucepan.  Put the chocolate in a glass bowl that is big enough to fit over a saucepan.  Place bowl over the saucepan.  Stir chocolate often as it melts.  If chocolate is too thick for your liking, add coconut milk.  When the chocolate has completely melted and is to your thickness, put one strawberry on the end of the bamboo stick and dip in chocolate until all but the top of the strawberry is covered.  Place chocolate covered strawberry on parchment paper and (optionally) top with your favorite topping.  Continue the same with the rest of the berries.  When done dipping, carefully transfer to your refrigerator to cool (about 1/2 hour to an hour).  Then grab a glass of red, a good book and enjoy!!!
