Here's a really cool idea for Valentine's Day: FAKE IT!
For real! Guys can be either really lazy about V-Day or over-think it and determine to learn new skills, such as cooking, on one of the biggest hyped calendar dates in the year, February 14th. That's probably not the best approach to making the date night more than being memorable for being bad.
Instead of trying to bake a cake or cookies, or dare yourself into making fudge, you could avoid a messy crisis and make your own Chocolate Dipped Strawberries.
TRUST ME, IT'S EASY!
You Will Need:
Strawberries (washed and thoroughly dried)
Candy Melts (pink and white)
Chocolate chips (semi-sweet is best)
Edible embellishments (there's time to order from Amazon)
Melt the Candy Melts and chocolate (according to the package) in their own container/bowl.
Dip strawberries into desired bowl and set aside.
Drizzle a different color "melt" onto the dipped strawberries.
Also, redip the strawberries in another "melt" at the tip and immediately dredge in edible glitter.
Set these in a tray in the fridge and take out to de-chill a few moments before eating.
These are fruity, gently sweetened with the chocolate and melts, and will look AMAZING with the edible embellishments!
Who is going to do this for their Special Valentine!?!?!?!
