Men and women have one thing in common when it comes to gifts... They both love edibles, and especially chocolates. Have you ever wanted restaurant quality chocolate covered strawberries, but you thought it would be too hard to make them? Everyone has seen those guys/ gals darting last minute into the local Godiva store that sells them, especially on the big Valentine's Day.
Like most people, however, nobody likes forking out the $5 each price tag, especially when there is no guarantee on the quality of the strawberry, or the actual taste of the chocolate. For under $10, you can make them yourself using this super easy process.
So, here it is... the recipe on how to make them using your sweetheart's favorite chocolate. The time it takes to make these beautiful sumptuous desserts is around 15 minutes, and so therefore they make an outstanding last minute fix treat.
These will last in the fridge up to 3 days, and the best part of this recipe is that it works with just about any fruit. So if your sweetie is a non-strawberry fan, you can sub in rice crispy treats, graham crackers, marshmallows, apples, or just bout anything you can think of covering chocolate with.
