Have You Ever...?
...made chocolate covered strawberries? Well, I did for the first time yesterday. Boy, are they good! I'm sure I must have eaten them before, but I don't remember them. I wanted to make some to serve on Valentine's Day. If you've never done it, I highly recommend it. It's so simple, and so tasty. Just do a search on 'chocolate covered strawberries recipe' and you will get all the information you need to make it happen.
I used semi sweet chocolate chips and white chocolate chips. I improvised on the chocolate drizzling and because I was running out of time, I made a few boo boos. They were still tasty.
The second thing I made were red velvet heart shaped mini cakes with cream cheese icing. These are about the size of 4 regular sized cupcakes. I ended up putting them on a bed of cool whip. Man, oh man, were they good. The cool whip really set them off. This was my first time making heart shaped food.
I think my dolls would enjoy some of these treats, too, so I will probably recreate them in dolly size. I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day!
