Indulge: Chocolate covered romance

Arguably, one of them most sensual and delicious treats during the most romantic season of the year, are chocolate covered strawberries.  Chocolate covered anything, really. That, and champagne, and we are sold on this holiday!

Whether you are going out or staying home to cook for two, we love to add a little chocolate and bubbles into the mix.  The best part is that you can make them in advance so even if you go out, they are ready to be devoured when you come home.

Get 6 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate – morsels melt faster3 ounces white chocolate
1-2 baskets of strawberries
Bottle of Champagne!

Line a tray with parchment paper and clean strawberries for prep.  Put the chocolate in two separate bowls.  Heat in low increments of time, starting with 30 seconds, and stir with a spatula.  Dip some of the strawberries in the semi-sweet chocolate and some in white, then place on the parchment paper.  Take a fork or knive, dip it in the melted white chocolate and drizzle on top of the dark, and vice versa.  Wah-la!  Chill your champagne over night, and you have the perfect evening treat for you and your honey to enjoy!
