Recipe Directions

Stir raw chocolate powder into coconut oil until well mixed, then add agave and mix together well. If you want to make a smaller batch, just use equal amounts of all three ingredients. To make chocolate-dipped strawberries: wash strawberries and pat dry. Dip into the chocolate mixture, put on a sheet of wax paper and refrigerate. You can keep the leftover chocolate dip in the fridge, just make sure you stir it up again when you’re ready to use it – the agave nectar separates to the bottom.

aquarius77 - It may stick to the nuts better if they're cold before dipping.

I tried this and LOVED it! :) It really hits the spot when my heart longs for the darkest of dark chocolate, haha.

Wow! Thanks for all the compliments :)
Fee - I got rid of all my chocolate molds when I started to eat raw; now I'm thinking about buying new ones...
Renoir - I haven't tried it with dates, but I would think it should work out just as well - you just might have to mix it all in the food processor or liquefy the coconut oil and do it in the Vitamix if you have one, just so it all gets blended smoothly - let me know if you try it that way:)

Would this work with blended dates instead of agave?

I made a third of the quantity and poured it into the insides of last years Chocolate Advent calendar and then froze it. It made fantastic mini chocolates which I stored in the freezer in a tub once they were frozen enough. I used carob though and they were Grrrreat (as Tony the tiger says about frosties!!) Thank you, Ill be making these again.

This looks fantastic! I even have strawberries and almonds so it looks like they are going to be covered in dark chocolate! Mmmmm...

You're welcome! I'm glad you like it. I have been making food so my son will like it, but after the comments about darker chocolate, I'm thinking I need to make myself a separate batch :) I used it as a frosting for raw brownies - yummy :)

Thanks again, Angie. You have saved me from a 2 year on an off love affair with non-raw chocolate covered almonds, ruining my raw world. These are as good as it gets--of course they are a little gummier before freezing, but I've been trying to come up with something that would work for awhile. I also used slightly less agave with a good result--liking that more intense darker chocolate taste. Many thanks1

For almonds, I like to have the chocolate semi-stiff and then put them in the freezer. The agave never freezes hard, but it sets up better cold.
If you are not eating 100 % raw, you could use maple syrup in place of the agave, and it will get harder. You just have to liquefy the coconut oil with the maple syrup and add the chocolate last. Then, have whatever you want to dip be cold (I used to put it in the freezer for 30 min. or so), dip, put on wax paper & put back in the freezer to set up. Once it is set, you can keep the stuff in the fridge.

Brilliant! Haven't tried it yet but this could just solve my problem with chocolate covered almonds! I'll post how they turn out.

This also works well as a chocolate frosting when left at room temperature.

Coppertone! That's awesome! Does it smell like coconut? Glad you both liked it :) My son is still laughing about the suntan lotion idea.

Oh my gosh! This is so delicious! I just cut back on the agave nectar since I like intense dark chocolate flavor. I dipped strawberries and they immediately hardened (not like the picture, I guess due to less agave nectar). My non-raw daughter loves them, the smell reminds her of Coppertone suntan lotion, LOL.

Thank you for posting this - and just in time for Valentine's. Ray and I used to make dipped strawberries for each other before moving to raw and I haven't tried them since. I cannot contain my excitement!!!
