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:
- Your favorite wine.
- Big plump juicy strawberries.
- Chocolate for dipping.
- Jimmies, Mini Marshmallows, Caramel, white chocolate and anything else you want to use on them.
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.
That’s it, simple simple! Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!
