Valentine’s Day Ready Chocolate Dipped Strawberries Recipe

This is the kind of Valentine’s Day treat your whole family will love! 

You may have noticed that I’m kicking it into high gear with the Valentine’s Day coverage. Yesterday we shared our tips for What to Wear for a Valentine’s Day photo shoot, to emoji Oreos and now, today, it’s all about the sweets again… I am talking about a, Valentine’s Day ready, chocolate dipped strawberries recipe to be exact!

This, easy to make, chocolate dipped strawberries recipe would make a perfect treat to serve to your loved ones on heart day…or any day really. I know my hubs would certainly appreciate them any day of the week! We typically stay in on Valentine’s Day to avoid the crowds and, instead, have our own little celebration after the kiddos go to bed!

These strawberries and a good bottle of wine are sounding like an awfully good  AND EASY plan…And if you’re feeling feisty and want to whip up dinner to go with those chocolate covered strawberries, this tortellini with rosa sauce looks divine. But I digress…
