The guy that runs the wrecker service salvaged the goods. One of our good friends was able to get a whole pick up bed full of strawberries. Then he was like Santa, delivering them all around town. And yes!! We made the list!! I ended up with 35 pounds. Yes POUNDS of fresh strawberries!!! OOHHHH YUM!!! I gave away 18 pounds. I cut the rest up and froze so I can make strawberry jam in a few weeks (My families FAV!!). While I was cleaning them, I picked out the prettiest berries.
And made Chocolate Covered Strawberries.
No Recipe (Super easy - - don't need one)
Not sure if I really even ate one before. But, it was Valentines weekend, so I gave it a whirl!
Oh My Gosh!!! Love them!!
Here are my pics....
All I did was melt some chocolate almond bark in a double-boiler. Grabbed the strawberry by the stem and dunked it.......... Placed it on parchment paper to set. Then I melted some white/vanilla almond bark in a zipper bag (just put it in boiling water). When it was melted, I snipped a small corner off and just drizzled it over the chocolate part. Soo stinkin easy!!
Perfect timing - - I was able to give a few of these babies out for Valentine's day!! What a special treat!!
I also tried to make cake balls. At the time of inspiration, I only had strawberry cake mix (wish I had chocolate....) I think in my excitement for making them, I didn't let them set up in the frig as long as I should have. It didn't affect the taste at all, but they just aren't as pretty as some I've seen you all do!! But...
Like I said - - the taste was NOT affected!! Now - -I just can't wait to try chocolate one!!!
I followed Bakerella's recipe and Jen at CraftOManiac..... Their's look a lot (A LOT) yummier!!!
Thanks for visiting!! Have a great day!!
