This Is The Best Last Minute Valentine For Your Love.
Day 24. Recipe 24.
We didn't pick up a card; the drug store shelves only hold a few pathetic tchotchkes, and the florist just ran out of roses. It's late on Valentine's Day. How do we say "I love you!" when we only have a few minutes to spare?
And a few sprinkles of love.
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
- parchment or waxed paper
- 1 pint fresh strawberries
- 1/8 teaspoon coconut oil
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- heart sprinkles (optional)
Step 1: Lay a piece of parchment or waxed paper on a cookie sheet. Wash and gently dry the strawberries. Place them on a paper towel to wick away moisture thoroughly.
Step 2: In a small microwavable bowl, heat the coconut oil and the chocolate in 15-30 second intervals until the chocolate is melted and stirred smooth.
Step 3: Dunk a strawberry in the chocolate and cover 3/4 of a strawberry leaving the stem and 1/4 of the strawberry uncovered. Place on the paper, sprinkle with small candy hearts (optional) and repeat with the remaining strawberries. Let dry for 1 hour.
Who said a last-minute Valentine gift isn't extra special?
Happy Valentine's day!
Until tomorrow friends!
