Almond Crusted Strawberries

Almond crusted strawberries

I love anything-covered strawberries and these are my absolute fave!

I mean, what could be finer than smothering one of your favorite fruits in chocolate and crunchy toasted almonds?

What’s even better is you can make these a few days before Valentine’s Day, or any other occasion, and they will be ready to please all your loved ones (and for a fraction of the cost of mail order).

I even added skewers to mine to make “strawberry pops” for the kids! They were a huge hit! Trust me…. anything on a stick just makes eating more fun 🙂

Did you know California strawberries are available year-round? It’s true! In winter, strawberries ship from always-warm Southern California; production moves north as spring emerges.

Here’s the easy recipe:

Ingredients: coconut oil, strawberries, almond slices, white chocolate chips

  • Fresh California strawberries
  • Bag of white chocolate chips
  • Coconut oil (you can use traditional shortening)
  • Slivered almonds

White chocolate chips and coconut oil in mixing bowl

Add the chocolate chips and the coconut oil to a double boiler, or just use a metal bowl over  a pot of boiling water. Melt over medium heat until thoroughly melted.

Ratio is 4:1, so every cup of chocolate chips, you should use 1/4 cup of coconut oil.

Roll the strawberry in the almonds to thoroughly coat.  Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and put in refrigerator to chill and enjoy!
