Chocolate Covered Strawberries



It is that time of year again! The time of love and flowers and chocolate, LOTS of chocolate! Have you checked out the Valentine aisle lately?  Crazy amounts of sweets!  

Well, here at the cottage we decided to do something a bit different.  Spend time with your loved one with a wonderful chocolate fondue pot of chocolate and some amazing strawberries!



If you don't like strawberries, no problem! You can use your favorite fruit.  We chose some great organic dark chocolate but it is really up to you and your own tastes.  We loved the idea of strawberries because they look like hearts.


We fired up the fondue pot (Don't have one? Click here and pick one up). Grab a bar of your favorite chocolate and lets sit and talk awhile.

We always do organic and we liked the dark chocolate because of the health benefits.  

Ingredients:

Chocolate Bar
Strawberries
Sprinkles or chopped nuts (if desired)

Directions:

 Place the pot on top and put in your chocolate chunks.  Place the fuel pot under the pot and use your lighter (we like this one ) to light it. When the chocolate is melted, skewer the berries with the provided skewers and dip into the warm chocolate. 

 Place on waxed paper to cool or enjoy warm.

They are so good and it is a fun way to spend the evening with the ones that you love.  

You can also drizzle them with white chocolate, add sprinkles, etc!  You could even put them in a pretty box to give to your loved one for Valentine's Day or their birthday.  

I hope you try this out and if you do, please let us know! We would love to see pictures of your edible work of art! You can post them to our Facebook page
