Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and there’s nothing I love more than chocolate covered Strawberries! They’re simple to make, delicious, and kind of healthy… (the fruit has to count for something, right?) Last year Luke made me about 2 dozen strawberries and it was the best gift ever. I’m a simple girl to please! If you’re low on money, or just know your significant other would love food for Valentine’s Day (who wouldn’t?), then strawberries are a perfect option.
You can get fancy and melt your preferred chocolate using a double broiler, but I simply bought some dark and white chocolate specifically for dipping fruit in and heated it according to the directions. You can even jazz your strawberries up with sprinkles, crushed cookies, mini chocolate chips, because more chocolate is always better, or melted caramel. The possibilities are endless. I stuck to just using chocolate, but after writing that last sentence out I really wish I had experimented more!
Now, Luke is away at school so I may have just eaten all the strawberries and not bothered to wrap them up, but there are plenty of ways to package these little guys up! A box lined with parchment paper and tied with a bow is a cute option. You can also put them on a Valentine’s Day themed plate and then wrap the plate in cellophane and a bow. Play around with it a little and see what you like best.
I hope this post gave you some inspiration for a sweet little Valentine’s Day gift. Even if they’re in addition to a gift you already bought for your significant other, everyone loves food 😉 I’m going to go eat the rest of my strawberries now, happy Valentine’s Day!
