This dark chocolate sauce has the most intoxicating rich chocolate flavor.  So make, eat, and love!


  • 2 tbls Raw Cacao Butter or Coconut Oil, melted
  • 1/4 c Cacao Powder
  • 1 1/2 tbls Maple Syrup or Agave Nectar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Powder
  • 10 Strawberries


1. In a glass bowl, blend all the ingredients in the order above.  If the chocolate becomes too thick, put the glass bowl in a warm water bath to re-melt the cacao butter or coconut oil.

2. Holding the strawberry firmly by the stem dip 3/4 of the strawberry in the chocolate sauce.  Rotate in the chocolate but do not completely cover as you want to show a bit of the red from the strawberry.

3. Place a piece of wax paper on a cutting board for all the chocolate dipped strawberries to lay.

4. Pop in the freezer for 3-5 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.

Serve on a white plate as this will bring out the color and draw the eye to the red strawberries and dark chocolate.
