A Valentine’s Treat You Won’t Regret in the Morning

It’s that time of year again for couples to make an excuse to recognize their love with cheesy Hallmark cards, fattening treats and an over-priced night on the town. It may sound like I am being a bit cynical, but the truth is, I’m just being realistic. It’s a cliché to say that every day is Valentine’s Day at Edible Epiphanies, but I sure do enjoy a lot of love here, and those of you in happy, solid relationships out there can agree that this can and should be the case!

What may tend to stray on this lovely holiday is your diet. You may think: What’s an extra Godiva chocolate or a second slice of cake on this one day that I can let it go and my better half won’t judge? While I highly advocate splurging a little every now and again, you can still enjoy some decadent treats without going overboard and feeling full of regret later.

One of my all-time favorite go-to treats for Valentine’s Day is the beautifully simple chocolate-covered strawberry. This delicious and not-too-unhealthy treat is perfect for any Valentine in your life. While I typically opt for the basic recipe, this year, I decided to give it a little something extra.

Black-and-White Drizzled Strawberry Recipe:

Thoroughly wash a dozen fresh strawberries (leave the stems on), lay them on a paper towel and pat them dry. Set aside.

Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.

Pour one cup of milk chocolate chips into a bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds. Take out and stir with a fork, and microwave for another 30 seconds until completely melted. Set aside. Then pour one cup of white chocolate chips into another bowl and do the same.

Dip one clean, dry strawberry into the milk chocolate until ¾ of the strawberry is completely covered.

Place onto the aluminum foil-covered cookie sheet. Repeat with five more strawberries and place them one inch apart.

Do the same with the other six strawberries, except instead of dipping them into the milk chocolate, dip them into the white chocolate. You can place them on the same pan if there is room.

Put the sheet of the strawberries into the freezer for one hour until the chocolate solidifies. When they are ready, pull them out and set aside. Re-microwave the leftover chocolate in the bowls to soften.

Take a fork and dip it into the milk chocolate – drizzle over the white chocolate-covered strawberries by drawing a line back and forth over the strawberry. Do the same with the reverse flavors and you’re done! They will need another hour or so in the freezer to solidify.
