When I first started dating my now-fiance, I learned it was a bit of a Valentine's Day tradition for people guys to patiently wait in line at a local candy shop for their famous chocolate covered strawberries. The shop sells a whole assortment of white, milk, and dark chocolate, -- and yeah, they're pretty amazing! So I can understand why they're considered a go-to gift for V-Day.
But the thing is ... the juicy, decadent treat is so easy to DIY! And if you have the time and the tools, why not do it at home? After all, something about giving homemade ones is extra heartfelt, right? Check out the super-easy recipe ...
