Homemade Valentines Day Gifts

Homemade Valentines Day gifts are the best!  They come from the heart, are made with love and taste great if they are chocolate dipped strawberries!

Browsing various Valentines Day ideas on the web, I thought, “Why not make our own traditions?”  Valentine treats are full of chocolate so naturally chocolate dipped strawberries was a good mix of healthy and celebratory.

Getting out the camera, I asked my boys how to make chocolate covered strawberries.  They explained it in the simple terms that only 6 year olds can.




So there you have it – chocolate dipped strawberries from a kids point of view.  In case you want a more detailed recipe here is the easy specifics on:

How to make chocolate covered strawberries:

  • 1 bag of dark chocolate chips    (Look for brands that do not contain preservatives and extra things.)
  • 1/4 cup of coconut oil
  • 3 pound of strawberries

  1. Melt the coconut oil in a glass baking dish that is suspended over a pot of boiling water as to not burn the chocolate.
  2. Add the bag of chocolate chips.  Stir, stir, stir  : )
  3. Dip strawberries.
  4. Place chocolate dipped strawberries on wax paper.
  5. Cool
  6. Share and ENJOY!

This was such a hit you can bet that we will be doing this every year!

Happy (early) Valentines Day!
