Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

HOLY MOLY! The summer berries are looking (and tasting) super good! Chocolate-Covered Strawberries are a classic treat. Regardless of your dietary affiliation (paleo, vegan, vegetarian, raw, etc.) these delightful berries are always permissible. A fantastic addition for any gathering such as movie nights, romantic dates, birthday parties, potlucks, and picnics.

Pro Tip: Once you’re done dipping the berries, use the remainder of the chocolate to make these.
