Every year for Mother's Day my Mom makes chocolate covered strawberries. I know Mother's Day is still a few weeks out, but I find myself craving her strawberries like crazy right now! I don't want to spoil my chocolate intake before the time comes that I have my hands on hers, so I got the idea to do peanut butter covered strawberries instead. I think I found a new favorite - perhaps my Mom and I can trade our versions this year!
These are great as a sweet contribution to a party, a homemade edible gift, a light after-dinner dessert, or an indulgent semi-healthy snack. Whatever you end up making them for or whoever you end up giving them to, be sure to save yourself a strawberry or two. You deserve to be treated for making them!
This recipe requires 1 lb of strawberries, which is your average container size sold in supermarkets. Depending on if you have many small berries or a decent handful of gigantic ones, you may or may not use up all of your peanut butter dip. That's fine - you can find other things to cover (pretzels or banana slices, perhaps) or even enjoy it with ice cream! Personally, I like the small strawberries because they are bite sized and in the end there is a more balanced coconut to peanut butter to strawberry ratio in every bite. Do what feels right for you though!
