Last year on my Instagram Stories I shared how to make chocolate covered strawberries, and y'all went BONKERS over it! Is it just me or does nothing say Valentine's Day more than chocolate covered strawberries? They are not only a classic V-Day treat, that also one of Bubba's favorites of all time. But, let's be straight here, if you are buying them from a store you're basically dipping into your emergency fund to do so. They can be so dang expensive! $3+ for a tiny strawberry? I think not.

All you need are 2 ingredients and a few minutes to make your own for a FRACTION of the cost.

Here's how you do it:

INGREDIENTS

  • Almond Bark or any other melting chocolate (but Almond Bark is my favorite!)
  • Strawberries and/or raspberries
  • Optional toppings: White chocolate, crushed nuts, sprinkles, etc.

DIRECTIONS

  • Clean and dry your berries. The chocolate will coat the strawberry better if it is dry. Tip: the colder the strawberry, the better.
  • Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl for 60 seconds. Stir. Continue microwaving in 15 -20 second increments, stirring each time, until completely melted. Be careful not to let it burn.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  • Hold the leafy top of the strawberry or use a bamboo skewer to dip it in the chocolate and roll it to coat completely.
  • Roll in, or sprinkle on, optional toppings before the chocolate hardens.
  • Drizzle white chocolate on top for added pizzaz.
  • Place on cookie sheet and chill the coated strawberries in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  • Store in the fridge until ready to eat.
