DIY Chocolate Covered Strawberry Hearts
I love making chocolate covered strawberries every year. They are my favorite Valentine’s day treat in our house. Actually, when I was pregnant with Isabella, it is all I wanted, and I didn’t know how simple they were to make. I finally made my own, and it became a tradition to make them each year. This year I made them a little bit different. I made chocolate covered strawberry hearts (you can even make them fancy with colored chocolate drizzled over or glittery dust you can eat), but I decided to keep it simple. I think when I make them again, they will come out even better looking than this attempt. But the steps are easy, and the treats are delicious. I will definitely make them again. Before we begin, make sure to pin this to your recipe board.
