Notes

I have found that the best brand of melting chocolate is the Ghirardelli Chocolate Melting Wafers.. To avoid sweating or leaking, it's best to make chocolate covered strawberries the same day you plan to serve them. But you can keep the dipped strawberries at room temperature for as long as ten hours, without having an issue.. The strawberries will keep longer if you keep them in a cool, dry place, The eyes and yelow candy hearts can be found at any craft store or on Amazon.

This Valentine’s Day, show your special someone how much they mean to you with thoughtful gifts like handmade chocolate-covered fruits! Not only do these treats taste amazing, but they look beautiful, too – making them ideal presents for any occasion. With a careful selection of quality chocolates and creative combinations of fruits and flavors, there are endless possibilities when creating or buying these tasty gifts.
