Chocolate Dipped Strawberries and Mandarins

Prep Time: 30 min


Organic Strawberries


Coconut Flakes (unsweetned)

Chocolate chips or your favorite chocolate bar

Get creative and enjoy playing with your food! The thickness of chocolate coating and additional toppings are totally up to you and your taste buds.

  1. Melt chocolate chips in double boiler on medium heat stirring the chocolate occasionally
  2. Wash and prep fruit, it’s best if strawberries are dry before being dipped
  3. Dip in melted chocolate
  4. Top with optional coconut flakes, crushed macadamia nuts
  5. Gently place on a tray or plate lined with aluminum foil or wax paper
  6. Place tray in fridge to set chocolate, or freezer if you want them fast!

Chocolate dipped mandarins with coconut flakes are one of my favorite finger foods to bring to potlucks. Fingers foods are fun great to share!!

I think the old saying “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach” goes for women too!

Happy V-Day!

With Love,

I don’t know why I did not make them more while living in the rolling foothills!!! Maybe the same reason I did not rock climb more while living in Yosemite…. the changing of seasons and my attention focused elsewhere…on boys and toys 😉
