  8. Thank you Gina. It truly is a romantic wedding date. It's also our last childs birthday. She will be turning 10 this year. I think it was fate when we decided we were done having children and she came to us on our 6th Anniversary.

  9. I work in the grocery business and they are telling us there is going to be a shortage on strawberries for Valentine's Day. Which sucks since they are my favorites.

    Here's a good one to try. Chocolate covered jalapenos. Weird, but soo good. Spicy chocolate!

  14. @Missy- WOW! That's truly a special date for you!

    @FoodieGirl- Chocolate covered jalapenos? I can't quite picture that! I've had chocolate covered pretzels, marshmellows, bananas even! I guess you can cover anything in chocolate and it would taste good :)

    @WeightWatcherPoints- Isn't it nice to be reminded?

    @Paulette- Your welcome, thanks for realizing how much work it is!

    I think I want to make more now that I'm reading all these comments!

  29. When I make chocolate covered strawberries, I always find my strawberries turn runny. I don't know how to describes. It's like there is a moisture between the strawberry and the chocolate. I have tried each individually, or even washing them and spreading them out to dry over night. Is it because I keep my strawberries in the refridgerator and then are cold when I use them. That's the only thing I can think of. Any one have any suggestions?

    Made these tonight...the perfect treat, just the right amount of sweetness. I rolled one of my chocolate covered strawberries in a few sliced almonds..tasty!

  31. I wanted to make these for V-Day tomorrow, are they okay to store over night in the refrigerator?

    ReplyDelete
  32. you have to make sure they are dry and room temperature. before you dip in chocolate.
    If you put in fridge to harden make sure you take them out after 10 minutes..
