I usually think things through before plunging in head first.. I really do, but this time I didn’t put all my brain cells into it. Pinterest is awesome, if you use it correctly. It shows you awesome ideas and as long as you don’t get sucked in forever, you find some pretty cool ideas to ‘pin’ for later.. but sometimes… oh sometimes you have to say… I NAILED IT!
Chocolate covered strawberries for Valentine’s day?
Great. Check Pinterest… oh wow, this looks so easy. I’ve melted these coating things before.. it says to pat the berries dry, okay, I’ve got this! It will be a great treat for my hubby and the kids!
I even have both colors of the coating, I can do the drizzle, they’ll look great!
I ended up cutting the stems off because the berries were still 1/2 white on top, because it’s February (hello) — so I had to use tongs to roll the things in chocolate. So how did they turn out? Basically eventually ending up with glopped on chocolate that looked…. less than appetizing!
