Chocolate Covered Strawberries {Recipe}

24 Jul

CCS (2)Chocolate covered strawberries. The lovers’ dessert. So luxurious, delectable, decadent and perfect for literally ANY occasion. My love affair with chocolate covered strawberries started at a young age when I was convinced I was being healthy because I was eating fruit – who cares if they are doused in chocolate? They are still fruit! Fruit is one of my favorite food groups – so to pay homage to such tasty treats I have decided to share my secret recipe for this lovely dessert. You’d be surprised how easy they are to make! They will surely impress whoever you are making them for..

Ingredients:

  • Fresh Organic Strawberries
  • Hershey’s Chocolate Kisses (yes, seriously)

Directions:

1. Gently wash the strawberries and pat dry with paper towels – let sit for at least 20 minutes so they are completely dry

3. Melt the kisses in the microwave at 1 minute intervals – stirring with a rubber spatula in between

4. Dip the clean, dry strawberries into the chocolate all the way up to the greens (this is the fun part!)

5. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet

6. Repeat steps 4 & 5 until all the strawberries are done! If you want to get creative, you can drizzle them with another color chocolate! Below, I drizzled with pink for my nieces Baptism party

7. Refrigerate the berries until the chocolate has hardened — it only takes a few minutes

Once the chocolate has set up, your hard work pays off!

Enjoy with a glass of champagne 🙂

The Most Amazing Pink Juice Ever Created

24 Jun

This post is a little off topic for me, since I rarely post about my amazing domestic creations – but the juice I made last night was so incredible, delicious, and gorgeous I just couldn’t help myself. I have to share it with the world. I want everyone to be as delighted with this juice as I am. Life changing. Sheer JOY.

Behold: The Pretty Pink Juice (not just for women)

How did I make this amazing thing you ask? Well, I am totally willing to spill the beans

The Pretty Pink Juice (How To):

Ingredients:

1 medium beet (raw, but peeled)

2 large carrots (peeled)

2 celery stalks

1 red apple (any kind will do, except for red delicious. I despise red delicious)

1 handful of red grapes

1 splash of coconut water (stirred in – obvi not through the juicer)

Place all ingredients in the juicer, mix in coconut water, add a couple ice cubes and a cute straw and enjoy!

PS. I do not peel my apples, I just chop em up with the fun little apple slicer

PPS. Did you know you can just throw a top on your mason jar and keep this in the fridge for up to 2 days?? I learned that on Google so if you do that and die please don’t blame me.

I hope this fabulous juice recipe has inspired you to make one and become as happy as I was last night… have fun!
