Vegan Chocolate Ganache Dipped Strawberries

13 Feb

It’s almost Valentine’s Day and what better accompaniment to the day than chocolate dipped strawberries! The chocolate sauce in this recipe is silky, delicious and 100% vegan! Enjoy, Eoin!

You will need:
60g raw cocoa butter
60g raw coconut oil
30g raw cocoa powder
120ml of maple syrup
250g strawberries

For the topping –
Toasted coconut
Toasted almonds
Chia seeds
Etc,

Method:
In a heatproof bowl, place the cocoa butter, coconut oil, cocoa powder and 60mls of the maple syrup. Place it in a pot of water on the lowest setting and allow to melt. At this point, it may look separated as the oil won’t fully mix. Don’t panic!

Place the mixture in a jug and using a blender, blend and slowly pour in the maple syrup. This will give it that silky, melt-in-the-mouth texture you’re looking for.

Place it back on the heat to keep it warm until you use it.

Dip in your strawberries or a favourite fruit and have fun with the toppings!

Top Tips:
With the leftover chocolate mixture, why not place some in chocolate moulds and push berries or coffee beans into them and enjoy as a small dessert with drinks! (see pic)
