So, here are my suggestions for a nice Valentine’s Day. First it starts with fresh fruit. You can use whatever fruit floats your boat but I am partial to strawberries. I was able to purchase these for $2.88! Score!
Next I found some dark chocolate. Yes, you can indulge in Dark Chocolate- did you know that it is full of antioxidants and having a little every day is actually GOOD for you! Yes it is. And I believe in indulging when it is beneficial!
Finally, I melt the ORGANIC chocolate and dip the strawberries!
A very nice and tasty treat that is simple to make and is oh so delicious and decadent! For that extra special touch I add champagne - Barefoot Bubbly Moscato Spumanti champagne is not only tasty but inexpensive too! It is on the sweet side because Moscato is used but it is very nice paired with dark chocolate covered strawberries!
If you are not interested in alcoholic beverages, I enjoy sparkling cider and this one is my favorite!
All of the items that I purchased are available at Walmart and to make a very special Valentines treat you will spend between $8 - $16 depending on if you chose an alcohol or non-alcoholic beverage. I’ve tried both and you can’t go wrong with either choice!
Heat chocolate - use either microwave (my preferred method) or double broiler. I use the microwave with an entire slab of chocolate and set it for 30 seconds. I check on the consistency and if needed I’ll put it on for another 20 or 30 seconds.
I then dip the strawberries in the chocolate and place them on wax paper. The chocolate will set on the strawberries in less than 10 minutes but if you are in a hurry you can place the dipped strawberries in the refrigerator.
Disclosure: I was given a gift card to Walmart to purchase the items in this post and as a Walmart Mom I've been compensated for my time to write and purchase the products for this post.
