1 16-oz. container strawberries
½ c. 60% cacao dark chocolate baking chips*
1½ T. coconut oil, divided
½ c. semi-sweet chocolate chips*
¼ c. white chocolate chips
¼ c. pecans, very finely chopped
*Use either 1 cup dark chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate chips, if preferred
First, the strawberries must be completely dry before dipping. Otherwise, the chocolate will not adhere correctly. For best results, allow the strawberries to air dry for at least an hour before dipping in the melted chocolate.
Second, to avoid chocolate that breaks apart and falls off the strawberries when you bite into it, be sure to add some form of oil to the melted chocolate prior to dipping. If you don’t have coconut oil, you can use an equal amount of melted butter or a neutral (tasteless) oil, such as sunflower oil, instead.
