Chocolate Covered Strawberries. I’m Anthony Dias Blue with the Blue Lifestyle Minute sponsored by CUISINART. Valentine’s Day is coming and the time to find a gift is running thin. Make things easy on yourself with some chocolate covered strawberries. Deceptively easy (and cheap) to make, it makes for a grand romantic gesture, especially when paired with a bottle of Champagne and some well-placed rose petals. To make, melt your preferred chocolate (I like around 65% dark), in a double boiler with two tablespoons of coconut oil, or vegetable shortening. Once melted, dip your large, t op-quality strawberries into the chocolate using a toothpick. Chill until the chocolate is hardened and then arrange them temptingly on a plate (remember the rose petals) and reap the loving rewards you so definitely deserve. f’m Anthony Dias Blue sponsored by CUISINART – fine small appliances and cookware.
