Have you ever had chocolate covered strawberries? OMG, they are awesome. Obviously that’s just my opinion but my opinion counts so it’s all good.
When my mom was pregnant with me, I guess she craved strawberries. There were 3 stores in town and every night she’d go to a different one, buy a quart of strawberries and a tub of coolwhip and eat them all that night. That might be why I like strawberries?
Now chocolate, I’m kind of a take it or leave it type. Yes, it’s okay and sometimes even good, but I’m a savory over sweets person. When it comes to chocolate, I really prefer the dark chocolate over milk chocolate which is totally different than pretty much everyone else in my family.
Over the weekend though, I got to eat some chocolate covered strawberries. We had chocolate (although I think it might have been dark chocolate) and white chocolate. I can tell you I prefer the chocolate covered over the white chocolate covered. The white chocolate covered are a little too sweet for me, but maybe that’s because I prefer savory…? But don’t get me wrong, they are both awesome. And so easy to make!!
Basically, melt your chocolate in the microwave or a double boiler works too. Dip the strawberries in the chocolate of your choosing. Then pour some of the melted chocolate of the other flavor into a piping bag, cut a small snip off the tip and drizzle with the chocolate. Let them cool on wax paper. Eat and enjoy! See, simple as that!
Now with Valentine’s Day coming up, go make your lover some chocolate covered strawberries. They’ll thank you (and maybe me 😂) for them.
