Tempt your valentine with a homemade, melt-in-your-mouth delicacy that will warm his heart and ignite his passion. You’ll have him eating out of the palm of your hand in no time!
Step 1: Melt a generous amount of chocolate chips over a low-heat oven. Use a double boiler to ensure you don’t burn the chocolate. Stir occasionally.
Step 2: Rinse your berries, making sure to check for bruises and dark spots. Leave the stems and leaves on for a more polished, finished straw- berry. After rinsing, dry each berry well.
Step 3: Line a cooking sheet with wax paper or parchment paper.
Step 4: Once the chocolate reaches a smooth, creamy consistency, turn off the stove to avoid burning the chocolate.
Step 5: Dip each strawberry completely into the chocolate, twirling them around so the berries get entirely coated. Set berries on cookie set to cool.
Step 6: Store berries in refrigerator until the chocolate has completely hardened.
Step 7: Once the chocolate has hardened, drizzle melted white chocolate in a zigzag pattern across each berry, or get crazy with a “tuxedo” pattern.
Step 8: Enjoy with the one you love!
