Easter Chocolate Covered Strawberries - From Val's Kitchen

Strawberries. Chocolate. Two of my favorite things. The flavor of the two combined is the best of both worlds. The pair just looks and tastes like it was meant to be. Chocolate covered strawberries can be really pretty to look at. Dress them up in their Easter best and you may feel almost guilty about eating them. Until you take a bite, that is. Here’s how you make them.

Ooo I never thought about doing a color drizzle on chocolate covered strawberries!! These look awesome and I think me and my klutzy-ness could pull them off. I wonder what would be a good way to package them to give away.

I just don’t think there’s any way it can be wrong to pair a strawberry with chocolate. It completely works!

Those are really pretty and would be great to bring to a friends/relatives house for all to enjoy. My biggest problem would be not eating them all before I took them as a gift!
