Paleo Chocolate Covered Strawberries - Sweets for your Valentine's Day Sweetie!

                                    What I Gather: Paleo Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Valentine's Day is almost here! We usually celebrate with a simple dinner at home and a special dessert. Before we discovered Paleo, we usually picked up a box of chocolates, a few cupcakes or some cookies. Following a Paleo way of eating doesn't mean we have to give up our sweet treats, though! 

These chocolate covered strawberries are made with only four ingredients and are perfect for sharing. You can prepare them before dinner and let them chill while you cook a romantic meal together. By the time you are ready for dessert, you'll have a plate full of perfect, decadent chocolate covered strawberries. You can even customize them by rolling them in finely chopped nuts or shredded coconut before chilling.
