Treat yourself without turning on the oven during these hot summer days.
|Makes approx 6 - 8 |
Sweetness - 1/3
Difficulty - 2/3
6-8 large ripe strawberries, stems removed
1 cup organic dark chocolate chips
dash of oil
6-8 ice pop sticks
Insert an ice pop stick over halfway into each strawberry. Place on a large plate and put in the freezer for two or three hours to harden.
Five minutes before you remove the strawberries from the freezer, add the shredded coconut to a small plate, and melt the chocolate chips in a saucepan over low heat. Stir with a spatula until melted and remove from heat. If the chocolate is thick, add a dash of oil to it. (Do not add water) Remove strawberries from freezer. Try to avoid handling them with their sticks.
Use the spatula or a spoon to cover each strawberry with chocolate. Roll it in the shredded coconut or sprinkle it on top while the chocolate is still wet. Allow to dry for a few seconds before placing back on the plate.
Freeze for another 30 minutes to set. Best served frozen, but also tastes great mushy!
