Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Happy Valentine’s Day!! Chocolate coma here I come….
Ahhh that fateful day when the outcome rarely meets the expectation. Ok girls…you all know what I mean right?!?
We as woman expect our men to somehow read our minds and figure out just exactly what’ll make us feel they appreciate us. But really we’ve set the bar so high in our minds, that frankly they really can’t win!
How many times have you said to the guy in your life that you didn’t really want anything for V-day or to go out because it was a silly Hallmark holiday, but secretly in the back of your mind you’re hoping he steps up and does some kind of big sweeping gesture to show you that you the greatest thing to walk the earth. Well. FORGET IT!!!
Men aren’t like us. They don’t play mind games or say things that mean something else. They say it like it is and take everything at face value. It’s kinda what makes men great no? Try and look at the day to day things he does that shows you how much he loves you everyday! But hey…ok…a piece of jewelry ain’t bad either!! lol
I decided on the simplest of and most traditional of romantic treats for Valentine’s Day. Chocolate covered strawberries just make me smile. Everyone loves them and they taste great with champagne AND anything that goes well with champagne has my vote!!
It’s funny how many times I bring these somewhere and people swoon and say they have never made them but always wanted to know how. Well here it is…super simple!! I crave champagne and chocolate strawberries everyday!
- 20 strawberries
- 1-1/2 cups white chocolate melting wafers
- 1-1/2 cups milk or dark chocolate melting wafers
- Wash and completely dry strawberries.
- Melt chocolate at 60% power on 30 sec intervals until fully melted.
- Lay wax paper on a cookie sheet. Dip 10 strawberries in white chocolate and 10 strawberries in dark chocolate. Using a fork drizzle alternate chocolate on each strawberry.
- Before drizzling, and once the first chocolate flavour is fully set, you can double dip into the alternate colour. Be creative, use sprinkles, edible glitter or coloured sugar.
