Weight Watchers Friendly Chocolate Covered Strawberries #ValentinesDesserts

Wine Soaked Chocolate Covered Strawberries!

 

Welcome to the 12 Days of Valentine’s Desserts! Last month, we shared with you our 12 Days of Christmas Desserts. That was a big success, so we figured we would do it again! So here we are sharing some of our favorite Valentine’s Day desserts. Be sure to come back every day and see what we have to offer.

When I think of Valentine’s Day, I think of wine, chocolate and strawberries. It’s strawberry time again right now in Florida and what better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day (and our 20th anniversary) than with wine soaked chocolate covered strawberries. I love it when I can combine all my favorite things and still fit it into my Weight Watcher’s plan. Find out more at Just Plum Crazy!

You might be thinking that is going to be a long drawn out and time consuming recipe. But the truth is that it couldn’t be any simpler.

Wine Soaked Chocolate Covered Strawberries Ingredients:

Start by soaking your strawberries overnight in your favorite wine. Since I am on the Weight Watchers program, I am using Skinny Girl California Red. After soaking them overnight, I let them drain on a towel or some paper towels for a little bit until they are dry.

Next, dip into your chocolate dip. I bought the ready made dip but you can make your own if you want. I dipped them all in the chocolate and then dipped them right in the garnish while they were still wet.

I then placed them on waxed paper (actually, I used saran wrap because I didn’t have any waxed paper) and put them in the refrigerator.

    My hubby and I had a homemade fondue bar for Valentines day. I wish I would have known to soak the berries in wine first before chocolate! This sounds so tasty!

    I love chocolate covered strawberries. Soaking them in a good wine just adds to the great flavor. Thank you for sharing

  16. It sounds and looks good. I don’t understand what soaking them in wine does. Maybe flavor the berry?

  17. I love fruit dip. I usually get the caramel or I think it’s some kind of cream cheese type dip. I like it on green apple slices. I love the combo of sweet and tart together.

  18. Linda Manns Linneman says:

    I am happy that these strawberries are even approved by weight watchers. I need to start watching my weight. Thank you for sharing

  19. Seems a bit interesting to try I am not a wine drinker though, but always can be good in fruit and strawberries would be great to try with.

  25. That sounds really good! I have never made them by soaking in wine first.

  26. Do the berries actually absorb any of the wine? I’d like to try this. The only wine that I ever drink is chocolate wine. I’m curious to see how it turns out. I think I’ll try a caramel or white chocolate dip.

  27. Jane Ritz says:
