Vegan Chocolate Dipped Strawberries



Vegan Chocolate Dipped Strawberries are great for semi-formal or formal events.   Substitute dairy cream with unsweetened coconut milk, and make sure the chocolate you use is vegan.  Use vegan semisweet baking squares, vegan dark chocolate disks, or vegan chocolate chips. Check ingredient labels for non-vegan ingredients such as milk fat, whey, and casein, among other things.
