The almonds:

The almonds are not listed as optional but they really are. If you have an allergy or just don’t like them, feel free to omit them. They are part of the nutrition label. They do make them pretty and taste very good with the chocolate and strawberries though. I like to do about half with and half without the almonds. It is pretty that way and sometimes there are some who would prefer them without. If you will do them all with almonds, you may need a few more than listed.

Could I use different nuts?

Other nuts could be substituted if you like. Just crush them up and use them as you would the almonds.

The optional sweetener:

The optional sweetener is not part of the nutrition label as I do not know what you would use or if you would use it. Most of us at my house like these without any added. One of us would like them a bit sweeter. There is always one. 😊 If you add sweetener, add it after the chocolate chips are melted and before you dip the berries.

Can Keto Chocolate Covered Strawberries be made ahead?

Yes! You can definitely make these a day or so ahead of time. Store them carefully in a covered container. Don’t pile them on top of each other. Do not freeze them.

Ingredients:

ingredients for Keto Chocolate Covered Strawberries

strawberries

 Lilly’s brand semi sweet chocolate chips

 coconut oil

 almonds

 liquid Splenda or your choice of sweetener, optional

 

Directions:

Wash your berries and dry them well. Leave the stems on. They give you something to hang onto and are pretty for serving.

Melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a double boiler on stove or microwave until melted. I used the microwave and did 30 seconds, stirred then another 20 seconds.

Crush the almonds.

Use forks or toothpicks to dip and swirl the berries through the chocolate, letting the excess drip off.

Dip into the crushed almonds or sprinkle them over the covered berries, whichever you prefer. Sprinkling will give you a lighter coating of almonds.

Carefully place the berries onto parchment or wax paper lined baking sheet and chill until ready to serve.

Notes:

The chocolate will cling to the berries much better if they are good and dry. Make sure you dry them well.

Being at room temperature is also best. The chocolate will not cling as well to cold or damp berries.

As you get to the end of the chocolate, it is a bit harder to make the strawberries look nice. I save those for the ones I will cover with the almonds to cover that.

Don’t forget to pin for later so you don’t lose the recipe!
