There is perhaps nothing more decadent than a luscious ripe strawberry dipped in yummy chocolate. Making these yummy treats has become a Valentine’s Day tradition for me. I started by surprising my mom with some several years ago, and last year I made them for my boyfriend. As Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I thought I’d share my take on this romantic delicacy.
It is an impressive, delicious, healthy, and oh so easy recipe! To make these treats you’ll need some nice sized strawberries (I would recommend Costco’s!) chocolate melts of your choice (I love the Ghirardelli dark chocolate) and some different decorations! Before you get down to the business of making these yummy treats, I would recommend that you set out some bowls with whatever you may be rolling your strawberries in. Sprinkles will look adorable, and pistachio covered ones are to die for!
Now is where the fun starts! Simply heat up the chocolate in the microwave with a bit of canola oil (that’s what makes them nice and shiny!) One your chocolate is all melted, dip, roll, and repeat! Just one more tip, you should NEVER serve anything that isn’t perfect, so be sure to snack on any that may have gotten messed up somehow 😉 Do you have any yummy Valentine’s Day traditions?
