Dark Chocolate-Covered Strawberries (Vegan)

Whenever I go to friends or family for dinner I always like to bring SOMETHING.    It seems lately that everyone is craving just a simple healthy treat. A go-to of mine is dark chocolate covered fruit. They are such a simple, guilt-free, and delicious treat! They are always all gone. Do you know the benefits of dark chocolate? Dark chocolate actually contains many really healthy compounds. Read labels though, many are loaded with other ingredients!
