Dark Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Here is a delicious, sexy, and healthy libido boosting recipe for you and yours this Valentine's weekend! The chocolate in this recipe is an ancient powerful aphrodisiac that also improves your mood and makes you more loving and romantic.
1 1/4 cup raw chocolate (cacao) powder
1 cup raw organic honey
1/4 cup melted virgin coconut oil or other cold-pressed oil
1/8 t. sea salt
1 tsp organic vanilla extract
16 ounces organic fresh strawberries (Strawberries should always be bought organic due to the high levels of pesticides)
Melt the coconut oil by putting the jar in a bowl of warm/hot water. Set aside and let the coconut oil liquefy. In a small bowl, mix together the chocolate powder, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract, and sea salt until well combined and smooth. Place in the refrigerator to chill for 10 minutes.
Line a large place with parchment. Holding the stem, dip each of the strawberries into the chocolate sauce, placing them on the plate as you work. Place the plate in the freezer for 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy this with that special someone!
