Wash the strawberries and dry VERY well with absorbent paper. Water and melted chocolate don't belong together! So it is crucial to fully dry the strawberries before dipping them into the chocolate.
Prepare a large chopping board covered with parchment - make sure it fits your freezer or fridge! Set aside.
In a small-medium microwave-safe bowl, add sugar-free dark chocolate chips (I am using Choc Zero), and coconut oil.
Microwave 30 seconds, stir and repeat until the chocolate chips are melted.
Stir until smooth.
Insert a toothpick in the center of the strawberry stem, then use the toothpick to dip the strawberry into the melted chocolate and rotate to cover all the sides.
Lift and twist the strawberry slightly to give some time to excess chocolate to fall back into the bowl.
Place the strawberry on the board covered with parchment paper, hold the stem and gently pull out the toothpick.
Repeat for the following 15 strawberries, leaving 1 thumb space between each strawberry as some melted chocolate will spread at their feet.
If you want to decorate the strawberries, sprinkle chopped nuts or coconut on the melted chocolate. For a white chocolate drizzle, wait until the chocolate layer is hard to apply
Put the board in the freezer for 10 minutes or in the fridge for 30 minutes to fully set the chocolate shell. I personally prefer the freezer, it sets the shell faster, and less chocolate runs to the bottom of the strawberries.
Remove from the freezer and store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 2 days. Don't overlap the strawberries for a better aspect.
Sugar-free chocolate chips are not all keto-friendly! Make sure the chocolate chips you choose for the recipe don't contain maltitol. It's not a keto-friendly sweetener and will raise your blood sugar level, which means it can take you out of ketosis.Best keto chocolate chips - I am using Choc Zero dark chocolate chips (affiliate link) for this recipe, but Lily's Sweet is also a great option.Coconut oil - use refined coconut oil to avoid coconut flavor in your chocolate. I don't recommend butter. The chocolate shell doesn't harden as well.
