ROMANTIC CHOCOLATE COVERED STRAWBERRIES

It’s that time of the year again. The month where grocery stores are filled with heart-shaped balloons, flowers, candies, teddy bears and ‘I love you’ cards. But what is Valentine’s without chocolate and strawberries? In my opinion, chocolate is one of the more seductive desserts, so it definitely goes well with the event. This dessert is easy and yet, inexpensive to make. Decorate it with some love, put it in a box, tie it with a bow and you got yourself a comparable ‘Edible Arrangements’.

I learned how to make these yummy desserts several years ago. As newlyweds, I did not know what to get him, since he has everything. So I thought what a better gift than to make something. Plus it was a bonus since he loves chocolate. Now once in a while when he craves for them, I make it. So it doesn’t have to be for this occasion but useful for any day. Add a glass of champagne makes it a perfect touch.

Ingredients:

1 container of strawberries
2 4-oz package of bittersweet chocolate, chopped
2 tbsp. shortening

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Rinse the strawberries and pat dry. Then set aside. Chop up the chocolate and place in a bowl. Add 1 tbsp. of shortening. Place over a double boiler and stir until chocolate is melted. Take the bowl off the double boiler and dip the strawberries into the chocolate. Here’s the fun part: decorate it with heart-shaped sprinkles, nuts or drizzle white chocolate over. The possibilities are endless. Enjoy! Here is the final result of my chocolate covered strawberries. Have fun with it and create it any way you like.
