How To Make Quick And Easy Chocolate Covered Strawberries For Valentine’s Day [VIDEO]
My wife really doesn't like to eat sweets. She will drink Coke, or Mountain Dew but not sweets. But this is her one weakness and I try to make them for her on Valentines Day every year. So I found this recipe and accompanying video so you can make them super quick for your sweety! This is exactly what I used to make mine and they turn out great. These can be very expensive at the store, and this is a great way to save a few bucks and still say...hey, I like care or something. Plus the video is less than 2 min, perfect for guys with short attention spans. Oh, and don't use coconut flakes, that's just nasty.
Here is a list of what you will need.
12 large strawberries, ripe but firm, with green stems and leaves attached
12 oz. semisweet chocolate chips or morsels or a 10-ounce bar of dark chocolate
A cookie sheet
A microwave-safe dish
A wooden spoon
Coconut flakes (optional and somewhat yucky IMHO)
Crushed pistachios (optional)
Melted white chocolate (optional, but super classy!)
A fork (optional)
