Paleo Friendly Dark Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

Even the kids will eat a strawberry dipped in dark chocolate. 
paleo, grain-free
Red Ripe Strawberries dipped in 70% cacao chocolate. Brings colour to a tray of Grain free "dainties".

Had the girls over for a ladies night and had to put out some treats. Thought I would try dipping strawberries in dark chocolate because who doesn't like that and I needed some colour on the tray (I went a little chocolate crazy so it was a sea of brown). Even the kids liked it. I will work on getting them a bit fancier next time but they looked okay for my first shot. They would also look great rolled in some nuts, coconut or drizzled with a bit of white chocolate.  

And remember dark chocolate and cocoa are rich in cell protecting antioxidants - naturals compounds found in fruits, vegetables, and nuts. They can play a role in fighting cardiovascular disease, premature aging and cancer. It also has a low glycemic index so it won't send your blood sugar soaring. Just eat in moderation and try to buy dark chocolate that is a least 70% cacao.

What I did (for about 12 strawberries and 4 dried apricots)

2 squares - Baker's brand premium 70% cacao baking squares

I cut the chocolate into small pieces and put in a small microwave safe glass bowl.  I washed the strawberries leaving the stems on and made sure they were very dry. I microwaved the chocolate for 30 seconds, stirred it, put it in the microwave for another 30 seconds, stirred again, and microwaved for 20 more seconds. You will have to adjust this for your microwave/chocolate but basically just put it in for 20 or 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between and making sure you take it out as soon as it is all melted. Next dip each strawberry and place on a piece of waxed or parchment paper and place in the fridge until ready to serve. Enjoy!
