Since having kids, I noticed that my food cravings have become rather moody. I swing in the afternoon, craving something sweet. Then right after, have a serious salty hankering. My husband does not appreciate my sweet & salty cravings. He thinks it’s odd. But, the kiddos are on my side. Sweet and salty rocks!

Chocolate covered strawberries are a classic treat for Valentine’s Day. Definitely classier and more sophisticated than a box of sweethearts!

Notes

Serving Suggestions: Serve on popsicle sticks or skewers for the kids or with champagne for the adults!

Cooking Tips: Use a good quality chocolate or you will have a grainy mess.

Make sure your strawberries are completely dry before dipping them into the melted chocolate. Otherwise, the chocolate will not stick to the berries.

These will keep in the refrigerator for 1-2 days. Just take them out of the refrigerator 30 minutes prior to serving for caramel to soften a little.
