I love easy recipes.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone familiar with the blog. There’s an entire page devoted to this type of recipe: Over 100 healthy dessert recipes that can be made in 5 minutes or less.

So these chocolate strawberry bars are perfect for me: Just a few ingredients, and the recipe can be made in—you guessed it!—under 5 minutes.

They kind of remind me of Strawberry Klondike Bars… just more like fudge in the middle than ice cream.

(This also points out to me the fact that I currently have no Klondike recipe on my website. How can this be?! Must change soon! But I digress…)

Chocolate Strawberry Fudge Bars

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Fudge Bars

  • 1/2 cup melted coconut butter
  • 1 1/4 cup sliced strawberries (160g)
  • just under 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon, optional
  • 1 tbsp agave or pure maple syrup
  • chocolate coating (see recipe instructions)

First blend just the berries in a blender or food processor until smooth. Add the salt, cinnamon, coconut butter, and sweetener, and blend again until smooth.  Smooth into a plastic container, and freeze until firm. Cut into bars or bites, and return to the freezer. (You can even insert popsicle sticks if desired.) You can either eat these bars plain OR cover them in melted chocolate chips or the following chocolate coating: Mix together equal parts cocoa powder, virgin coconut oil, and pure maple syrup until a thin sauce forms. Dip in the strawberry fudge, then immediately set back in the freezer to harden. Leftovers should be stored in the freezer for up to two weeks.

Side Note:

I’m working on a personal post I’ve been thinking about publishing for a while now… some of you can probably already guess the topic.

Hopefully it will be up next! If you’re only interested in reading recipes, please rest assured they aren’t going anywhere. I’m also starting to plan the recipe theme weeks! So if you have any particular theme weeks you’d like to see, feel free to leave requests in the comments.

  1. These look delicious! Looking forward to reading your personal post. Always nice to get to know the author of the blog better :)

  2. These look fantastic Katie! I love simple treats that can be whipped up in minutes ^ ^ Especially when dipped in chocolate! Intrigued by the more personal post, and looking forward to reading :) Wishing you a lovely Thursday :) x

  3. Erika says:

    It’s early, but did I miss the step where you mix in the coconut butter? I’m assuming it’s right after you blend the berries and add the other ingredients, but wasn’t sure. Looks yummy!

  4. Kathryn says:

    This looks so good, but what do you do with the coconut butter? It has no place in the instructions. I’m guessing it goes in with the strawberries…

    1. Sorry about that. Fixed now! :)

  5. Amanda says:

    Might need to whip these up today! Looking forward to reading the personal post soon.

  6. Love the use of coconut butter and the fact that these are vegan! Decadent :)

  7. Ella says:

    oh my goodness YUM! I have a batch of the raspberry version of this fudge in my freezer now. can’t wait to try it with strawbs!

  8. Molly says:

    Hi Katie, do you usually make your own coconut butter or buy it? I’ve looked for it at a few places, including Trader Joe’s, but I’ve only found coconut oil. Do you have any suggestions for where to find inexpensive coconut butter or a recipe for how to make it? Thanks!
    Molly

    1. Kinzie says:

      I know you asked Katie, but the only one I’ve seen to buy is Artisana Coconut Butter. Vitacost sells the 16 oz jar for $10.79. I bet fancier stores like Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s would carry it, too. (And Amazon carries MaraNatha and Nutiva varieties as well.)

      I tried to make it once with raw coconut flakes, but it didn’t turn into anything resembling butter. I used a high powered blender – maybe a food processor would work better.

    2. Amber says:

      Hey Molly!
      It’s super easy. If you have a food processor or a blender just take a bag of unsweetened coconut flakes or shreds, empty the bag or half the bag (depending on how much you want) of unsweetened coconut into the blender or food processor turn on said machine and it will whip the coconut into a beautiful yummy butter! If you want you can scrape down the sides of the blender or food processor periodically.

    3. Deborah says:

      I found some last week at Wegman’s in Rochester, N.Y. in the natural food section (Nutiva Coconut Manna). I wouldn’t call it inexpensive, though! It was $7.49 for 15 ounces. I used it to make some Light Summer Berry Yogurt Pies for our 4th of July picnic!

    4. Alpine Pedestrian says:

      Here’s the link to Katie’s directions to make coconut butter:

    5. Jessica says:

      I have actually just seen it at walmart before. They carry coconut butter.

  9. Polina says:

    Looks so fresh and delicious! I want to steal some:) And as for me – I do like the way you writing and that sometimes you post not only recipes – for me it’s more about the person behind the scene and I’m glad to meet this person.

  10. Edie says:

    You can get wonderful coconut butter from Tropical Traditions online.

  11. These look fabulous!! I can’t wait to try my hand at them! :)

  12. Christi says:

    This looks great! I might try this with the black raspberries I just picked from our yard, but I’m wondering if the seeds might too much.

  13. D says:

    Hello,

    I’d like to request a recipe for a vegan soufflé please! I’ve never tried one before.

  14. They look pretty and sound yummy :) Strawberry lover’s delight. Thanks for another easy idea!
    I’m looking forward to learn more about you personally, too.

  15. Mary Frances says:

    These sound so simple and quick! You can just whip some up and then get out to enjoy the sunshine.

  16. danielle says:

    I cant believe you turned my favorite ice cream treat (klondike bars) into something I can enjoy without feeling guilty about it.

  17. Jeannie says:

    Once again you’ve made something that makes me want to leave my desk and head to the grocery store, immediately! FYI, I do enjoy your personal posts as much as your recipes; it’s always good to see the personality and story behind the work you do here.

    P.S. For a copycat Klondike recipe, might I recommend that you replicate the mint version? Or even better, the “Reese’s” Peanut Butter Klondike?

  18. Jen says:

    Looking forward to your personal post. I hope everything is ok.

    1. Cck says:

      Oh yes, all is okay!!

  19. These look amazing! I have it on my to-do list to browse your recipes and make some this weekend :) especially after my sweet tooth this week! I would love to read your post! It’s always nice to “know” the people you follow a bit ya know?

  20. Emma says:

    Noooooooo! Please, please go back to having the entire post included in the email! My “filter” at work blocks any “social-media-related sites” (I teach high school) and it keeps the full pages from popping up whenever you click on the title of the link. Drives me nuts– please, please, pretty pretty PLEASE !!!!

    1. Cck says:

      Wish granted. It was fixed almost immediately after I got this morning’s email. I had changed some settings the day before but never intended for the emails to have been changed.

  21. Shonalika says:

    I just put up a ridiculously simple recipe and felt a bit silly doing it – until I remembered that on a regular day I’m far more likely to try simple recipes by other bloggers than complicated ones. Such as these. They look so cute and simple and utterly delectable. Its only the dipping part I’d struggle with xP

  22. Filmibuff says:

    Can’t wait to try this over the weekend. I have a whole bottle of Artisana coconut butter and a basket of strawberries sitting around. This sounds and looks delicious.

  23. Rachel says:

    Do these need to stay in the freezer? Or just to set and then can leave them out?

    1. Anna says:

      I believe you will need to leave them in the fridge or freezer as the coconut butter will melt when left out

  24. Your blog is beautiful, Katie! I look forward to read your personal post. I would also LOVE it if you had a ‘raw’ week, where you only shared with us raw recipes :-)

  25. Candice says:

    I have some Earth Balance coconut oil peanut butter that I think would be yummy for this. Could I use that instead of coconut butter and would the measurement be the same?

    1. I’ve never tried, so I really can’t say. You can experiment! :)

  26. Gee says:

    Always looking forward reading your personal posts, they are so nice to read! Is it somehow linked to the light re-styling your blog has recently undergone? If I can be honest I liked the old one better (reading the newest post in the homepage > having to click to go to an other one), but I guess it is to “maximise” you pageview, so if it will allow you to profit a bit more from your hard work, I’m honestly not gonna complain! :) Thanks for the recipe btw, also because easy recipes -> less dishes to wash afterwards 😛

    1. Still in the process of redesigning, so things will not stay exactly like this! :)

  27. This looks amazing! Agreed on simple vegan desserts, they’re fabulous!

  28. Heather says:

    Not to be a party pooper, but I actually don’t like the taste of coconut… is there something I can sub in the place of the coconut butter? These look really delicious and I’d love to try them bur I don’t know enough about the consistency/behavior of coconut butter in a recipe to figure out how to sub it myself.

    1. Heather says:

      haha, “but” not “bur” oops

    2. EVA says:

      Don’t worry, I’ve been pooping parties (and my own) because of my hate for coconut! I always want to buy a vegan cheesecake, but alas….the tastebuds always win.

    3. Maria G. says:

      I’m guessing you could use cashew or almond butter, but I’m not the creator of the recipe! :)

    4. Anna says:

      Maybe a nut butter like cashew butter? Since cashew butter doesn’t solidify when cold, I would add a bit of coconut oil as well. If you don’t like the taste of coconut, you can get the neutral tasting coconut oil.

  29. EVA says:

    This is MUCH more innovative, so screw the Klondike! I don’t even think I’d coat it in chocolate; the straight-up strawberry sounds so refreshing even in these colder than usual summer days we’ve got going on.

    I’m super pumped for this “theme week” business! I’m down for any theme, but I’m secretly hoping for a “remake” week, such as recreating candy bars and such.

  30. Gen Piaremor says:

    Looks so awesome and so delicious. I do love strawberries and chocolates. Nice to know they are one. Looking forward for more interesting recipes.

  31. Maria G. says:

    How about a week with the theme “Copycat Recipes”? How to make favorite unhealthy commercial treats the CCK way!

  32. Teresa says:

    I’d personally love to see a breakfast recipe theme week!

  33. Gemma says:

    These bars look so colorful and yummy! :-)
    Wouldn’t mind to munch on these bars right now even though I’ve just had lunch. Hee hee.
    Yummy as usual!
    xoxo

  34. Fabulous. These look fabulous! I love theme weeks; maybe an oatmeal theme week, or a nut butter theme week where you make lots of different types of nut butters? Or a banana soft serve week?
    Can’t wait to read your personal post. I love it when bloggers open up and share about themselves. It make the blog more interesting when you know that the blogger is more than their blog, if you know what I mean.

  35. These look so delicious and they are super duper easy! I’m totally craving these right about now….

  36. becky says:

    can you us frozen berries for this? I have a ton I’ve froze so if you can do you just put them in while they’re froze?

    thanks

  37. These look delicious Katie and perfect for summer! I went strawberry picking the other day and have lots of strawberries I need to use up!! :)

  38. HH says:

    I haven’t made these, but they look perfect. I don’t really like strawberries (weird, right?) so I’ll have to try with cherries or raspberries… I think a week of loaf-cakes or breakfast baked goods would be great too!

  39. Chelsea says:

    Just whipped these up. I skipped the cinnamon and used vanilla extract. They’re freezing right now. The purée was so good I had to stop myself after the fourth spoonful. Strawberries and cream yum. So easy!

  40. Nikki says:

    How about a week where Greek Yogurt is the star?

  41. Vic says:

    These look amazing!

  42. AnnaBananaBelle says:

    yum i love Klondikes! Maybe you could do like a fruity week which would include recipes for like fruit cobblers and crisps and pies and stuff like that. I would love to see something like this!

  43. These look amazing!! Love how easy they are too. Easy recipes are the best recipes! Can’t wait for the personal post either!

  44. I’m really glad you did this most recent post. I don’t understand how people can think you’d be promoting unhealthy eating when I love your website because it gives me healthy alternatives to allow me to continue with my healthy lifestyle and still treat myself (and feed my chocolate addiction 😉 ). So I just wanted to say keep doing you because you have for a fact one girl in your corner!

  45. eliza says:

    just popped a batch in the freezer made with fresh Okanagan cherries! thanks for the great idea :)

  46. I love the color, such a great recipe!

  47. Alicja says:

    Can I use frozen strawberries? ^^

  48. Rose Nelson says:

    These look amazing! I can`t wait to make. So funny, I literally just posted a vegan Klondike recipe on my blog! Check it out if you like :)

  49. Rachel says:

    Katie,
    These are delicious! My husband loves them. After I made these I then made more with bananas instead of strawberries. They are absolutely amazing. I ate the whole batch… by myself… I used 2 large very ripe bananas. This recipe is outstanding in my opinion Thank you!!

  50. Chloe says:

    My favorite chocolate combo is chocolate and coconut, so I’d love to see a coconut themed week! :-)

  51. Valentijn says:

    I love fudge, thanks for the recipe.

  52. Jackie says:

    Hi Katie! I’m making these right now. If they turn out amazing and I love them (ha, what do I mean “if”, of course they will be amazing!), do you mind if I share the recipe on my blog, but of course link back to this page a few times? Much love, thanks for all your recipes xx

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      The following is from Katie’s FAQ page. Hopefully it helps!

      I’m ridiculously happy when someone tries one of my recipes. I do ask, though, that you link back to the recipe instead of posting it on your site unless you’ve made major changes. I have big plans for some of my recipes. But please feel free to use any of my photos as long as you give credit.

  53. Magen says:

    That’s so yummy Katie! Looks very simple and easy to whip up. :) That would also be delish doing banana in the middle.

  54. Maxine says:

    I am allergic to coconut anything. It’s makes my skin EXTREMELY itchy. What can I use as a substitution in your recipes?

  55. Phyllis says:

    Hi Katie!

    First I would like to say thank you so much for wonderful recipes! I spend my free time looking through over and over again for new receipes to try out and I have tried a few. They are so good :)

    I would like to ask if I can replace coconut butter with anything else? Like soaked cashews or something? If yes, do you have the ratios? Its really hard for me to find coconut butter where I live. Thanks a million Katie :)

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      You can always experiment! If you experiment with soaked cashews, please report back for others to read of your results!

  56. Sarah says:

    Is it possible to do this with other fruits such as bananas as well?

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      Sure, why not?

  57. Lizzie says:

    This is a fantastic recipe. Thanks

    They look great. Thank you for sharing it with us.
