Hi Ya’ll! Valentine’s is this coming Sunday. My husband and I don’t go all out. We prefer to stay I with a nice meal and maybe watch  a movie. Sometimes he does bring me a bag of  my favorite dark chocolate dove or a big bag of kisses for my bedstand jar.

I am a huge fan of chocolate. Why not this year instead of flowers or expensive gifts make some Chocolate covered fruit. It is a healthier alternative  as long as we don’t eat the entire box at one sitting. They also look lovely as a centerpiece on a romantic table.

Chocolate Strawberries have been around a while. They are juicy and chocolaty goodness. I love them Here is an easy recipe.

Use Dark chocolate instead of the milk and you have an added antioxidant.  A drizzle of white chocolate or sprinkle with silver dragees or dip in edible gold or pink glitter to dress them up.

I think the chocolate Oranges are cool too. When I looked up a recipe i found this one that was an orange peel filled with chocolate

This looks so easy

Take the orange section and dip them in melted chocolate and you have a double chocolatey,  citrus treat… remember if you use dark chocolate its antioxidant so you’re getting vitamin c and an Antioxidant. I think  Grapefruits would be good  like this as well.

Now all the stores sell a variety of chocolate covered fruits such as pomegranate, dried cranberry(crazins) and blueberries. Let’s not forget how good raspberry is with chocolate! Of course there is the staple chocolate raisins and all sorts of chocolate nuts and pretzels.

So this year instead of  buying just chocolate make it a little healthier with nuts or fruit!

What do you want for Valentine’s this year?

Happy Valentines day!!

  1. Chocolate oranges are yummy! My sister loved strawberries especially. I live in strawberry country but don’t care for them as much as some other fruits. For Valentine’s Day one of my Snickerdoodles made me an awesome felt picture with love and bejeweled bling. It made my day.
