I am two things for certain: a dog person, and a chocolate person. I don’t believe you can be indifferent about either. So, the prospect of eliminating chocolate from my diet killed me. Luckily for us, we don’t have to! Below is a quick and simple recipe for a delicious chocolate dessert.
Soy-free, dairy-free chocolate chips (http://www.enjoylifefoods.com/chocolate-for-baking/?cat=chocolate_for_baking -Whole Foods carries them!)
1 spoonful of Earth Balance natural buttery spread -Also Whole Foods
Rinse and thoroughly dry strawberries.
Boil a small pot of water.
Put your chocolate chips and butter into a glass bowl.
Once the pot of water has boiled, turn off the heat and place the glass bowl on top of it. Stir with a spoon until all of the chips and butter have melted.
Hold the strawberries by their leaves and dip.
Place them on parchment paper to harden and enjoy an hour or two later!
In the case that you have a chocolate craving you’d prefer to satisfy with less work, buy a chocolate bar! Trader Joe’s carries a milk chocolate candy bar that is soy-free and organic. It is not, however, dairy-free.
