HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!
Is it weird I think of Valentine’s Day as having a countdown like New Year’s Eve? HA!
Anywho… If you’re looking for a quick & easy Valentine’s Day surprise/dessert—I’ve got you covered!
This recipe is foolproof and you can whip it up in no time. Plus, chocolate covered strawberries are DELICIOUS!
I’ve made these for possibly 4 years now? Every Valentine’s Day, a few birthdays, and a few random days throughout the year… I’ve had random requests to make them—they’re THAT good!
So, here are the deets:
CHOCOLATE COVERED STRAWBERRIES
+ Line baking tray with parchment paper
+ Place candy melts in microwaveable bowl and place in microwave. DEFROST for 2 minutes and stir.(Very important: you want to defrost it... I didn’t do this once, I just put it in for 2 minutes like I was cooking it, and it burneddddd. And smelled nasty. It shouldn’t smell nasty. It should smell like heaven. ; ))
+ After you stir it, put it back in the microwave and defrost it for another 30 seconds to a minute. Continue steps 1 & 2 until chocolate is fully melted and smooth.
+ Hold strawberry by the stem and dip it into the chocolate, lifting and twisting it slightly so any excess chocolate falls back into the bowl.
+ Sprinkle the sprinkles (or nuts) onto the strawberry and place strawberry on parchment paper.
+ Repeat (& feel free to taste test a strawberry. It’s only right!)
+ Place tray in fridge (so the chocolate can set—this generally takes less than 30 minutes.)
I’m planning to whip up another batch before lunch while listening to this new playlist—SO GOOD!
