Pistachio and Chocolate Dipped Strawberries Recipe

I love chocolate dipped strawberries and right now strawberries are finally coming into season here on the east coast. Now is the time to buy fresh ones at a great price and enjoy them! You can easily make your own at home which save you money and trust me, homemade always tastes a lot better than store bought!

Looking to make some? Check out this recipe courtesy of Pistachio Chewy Bites. It will make 4-6 servings. Visit their web site to learn more about their foodie products and to pick up some additional easy-to-make recipes.

Pistachio and Chocolate Dipped Strawberries Recipe

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
1Ž4 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.
