Vegan Choco-Strawberries

Strawberries in bowl

I was craving something sweet today but was really busy after coming back  from the farmers’ market and shopping.  I had already bought these beautiful strawberries and since I had a bar of chocolate, I prepared this delectable, but so simple, dessert in no time.

It took 5 minutes to melt the chocolate and 10 minutes to dip them in it.


By the time we had lunch, they had cooled and were ready to be devoured:)

I love the combination of black pepper and chocolate, without it being hot but just giving a bit of a tingle on the tongue.

The addition of salt enhances all the flavours.

If you do not have petimezi, you can substitute it with carob syrup or maple syrup and for those who are not vegan you can add honey.

  • 1 tbsp vegan margarine
  • A pinch of coarse sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Wash and drain strawberries.
  2. Line a baking tin or a tray with parchment paper and place a rack on top, for chocolate to drip in.
  3. In a double boiler melt the chocolate.  When it starts melting, add remaining ingredients and mix until the chocolate is smooth and glossy.
  4. Dip each strawberry  into the chocolate and place on the rack.
  5. Allow to cool and refrigerate before serving.

    Looks very delicious and yummy, children will love this one, simple but yet nutritious.

  8. yummy yummy recipe ever. i always thought like having straw berries with ice cream or with fruit salad or like that of a milk shake. But have not ever got this idea of having it with chocolate. A true delight. Though we know the numerous uses of eating straw berries, we get bored to continue eating them. But this is such an awesome idea that will wash away the boredom. Such a lovely idea and they are looking so tempting…… :*

  9. Vegan chocolate strawberries taste delicious. Thanks for sharing your recipe. The next time I make a batch I will use honey. It may not be vegan but it will still be very healthy.
