I LOVE good, easy, simple, delicious treats!
(As if you didn't know that already.)
And the other day in the mail, I got fun stuff from Lucky Leaf to make some GOOD, EASY, SIMPLE, and DELICIOUS treats!
So, I baked up some Valentine's Strawberry and Chocolate LOVE!
This is a great alternative to chocolate dipped strawberries. Let's face it, strawberries aren't in season and they are really expensive where I am. Besides, it's difficult to get good strawberries when they are out of season. I'd rather wait a few months and then go pick my own.
This recipe is very easy to make. Hand it off to the hubby to make with the kiddos. Yes, it's easy enough for even the men to make!
And - this recipe sure does make A LOT of hearts! I cut out 35 hearts and took them all to my daughter's school. What a hit! Everyone loved them!
