Dark Chocolate Strawberries
With Valentines Day only a week away, I thought it would be appropriate to make my favorite, Dark Chocolate Strawberries. These delicious little devils took a total of 5 minutes to mix and dip. The dark chocolate sauce has the most intoxicating rich chocolate flavor. So make, eat and love!

* 2 tbls Raw Cacao Butter or Coconut Oil, melted
* 1/4 c Cacao Powder
* 1 1/2 tbls Maple Syrup or Agave Nectar
* 1/2 tsp Vanilla Powder
* 10 Strawberries
In a glass bowl, blend all the ingredients in the order above. If the chocolate becomes too thick, put the glass bowl in a warm water bath to re-melt the cacao butter or coconut oil. Holding the strawberry firmly by the stem dip 3/4 of the strawberry in the chocolate sauce. Rotate in the chocolate but do not completely cover as you want to show a bit of the red from the strawberry. Place a piece of wax paper on a cutting board for all the chocolate dipped strawberries to lay. Pop in the freezer for 3-5 minutes for the chocolate to harden. Serve on a white plate as this will bring out the color and draw the eye to the red strawberries and dark chocolate.
