Strawberries dipped in a mix of white chocolate and coconut with just a hint of coconut oil are a ” melt in mouth” delish treat ! When my sunday supper team decided to do a trick or treat theme I knew this was wanted to make. I saw this recipe for strawberry ghosts in the “Taste Of Home” website and loved it. I made some modifications to the recipe. I added coconut oil instead of shortening. I also added shredded coconut flakes which gave the strawberries a nice rough aged ghostly look. Added bonus they tasted great. Turned white chocolate into gourmet white chocolate. I got my kids involved which was great. My 9 yr old decorated the faces and was so proud of her efforts I didn’t have the heart to display the ones I decorated ! The best way to get the chocolate all smooth and to a dip consistency is to use a double boiler where the chocolate does not touch heat directly. I did not have a double boiler, so I made one. I put a shallow dish with water on the stove and heated it. I then put the chocolate in smaller dish and placed it in the pan with the boiling water. Worked great and I had my own double boiler. All in all, we had a great time making these treats and I hope you enjoy making them too !
Nutrition Wise !
One cup of strawberries contains over 13% of the RDA of dietary ﬁber which is so essential for so many things including keeping digestion regular and curbing overeating It is a low-calorie fruit bursting with Vitamin C . Coconut oil has healthy monounsaturated fats which do not stored by your body but get burnt as fuel for energy. Chocolate is just icing on anything you eat and when you add it to berries makes a decadent reasonably healthy dessert !
