February 27th is National Strawberry Day and what better way to enjoy this delicious berry than having it covered in chocolate!
Pistachio Chewy Bite Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
4 Setton Farms Pistachio Chewy Bites
12-14 fresh strawberries, washed and dried
1 cup dark chocolate chips
2 teaspoons cocoa powder
2 teaspoons refined coconut oil
Dash sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Finely chop Setton Farms Pistachio Chewy Bites and set aside.
In a double boiler add chocolate chips over medium heat. Or fill a 2 quart pot with 1 inch water, covered with a heat-proof bowl. Place chips in bowl and allow chocolate to melt, about 5 minutes.
Whisk in cocoa powder, coconut oil, sea salt, and cinnamon. Smooth with a spatula until uniform and lower heat to a simmer.
Dip strawberries into chocolate mixture and transfer to a baking sheet, lined with parchment or wax paper. Sprinkle generously with chopped Setton Farms Pistachio Chewy Bites.
Let cool for about 10 minutes, and then transfer to refrigerator for about 1 hour to overnight to set up before serving.
