Does this sound familiar…

kids -(at approximately 7 pm) “Mom, I need to bring treats for our class party.”

Me – “Sure, when is the party?”

kids – “Tomorrow.”

Me – “Of course it is.”

I shouldn’t be surprised, it happens to me all the time.

This is my favorite kind of holiday treat…fast and easy – for those nights the kids spring class parties on you right at bedtime – please tell me I’m not the only one.

 

We always have strawberries at home, and Ghirardelli chocolate makes anything just that much better.  The premium baking chips  melt easily, produce a smooth finished product (no extra oil needed), and of course taste delicious.  That and a few tooth picks are all you need for a super fun Valentine’s Day treat.

 

 

hull and halve berries, arranging side by side to look like a heart, and use the pick to hold them in place

you can dip the berries in to the melted chocolate, but I found the by spooning the chocolate over the berries, the finished heart was more uniform

**remove the tooth picks before the chocolate hardens {they come out  MUCH easier with the chocolate still warm…trust me}

Let’s face it,  Valentine’s day is ALL about the chocolate, and these hearts are a fun twist on a holiday classic.

plus, it’s fruit, so you can eat as many as you want
