    Little Bee's Note:

    I used to always make these with shortening and milk chocolate but I found a lighter version using Canola Oil(rich in monounsaturated fats)instead of shortening(mostly saturated fat) and when I made these for New Years Eve not only are they lower in fat but I think the dark chocolate(also lower in fat) really better enhances the flavor of the strawberries. I came across this while searching for appetizer's for guests watching their weight. My guest's have yet to try them but I have sampled one and they are fabulous!Great to serve during the Holidays, at Showers, or Wedding.

      I always used butter for my chocolate covered strawberries, so this was a nice change and so quick to put together! I used mint chocolate chips and they worked wonderfully, and the mintiness is just as refreshing as the strawberry! The chocolate didn't come out glossy for me, but I think that just depends on the chocolate. (I think my chips were a little older anyway) Still very pretty and very tasty! Thanks!

      And if you watch what chocolate you buy this recipe is dairy-free and vegan friendly!
