Make the cutest and healthiest Valentine’s Day Dessert for your loved ones – and it’s easy! These are Chile Chocolate Covered Strawberries! If you know me, you know I hate to cook, and frankly I am scary in the kitchen! Yes, now that I am a wife and mom, I try to cook something at least once a week, because we all know pre-made food at the store and eating out isn’t the best for you, but man it’s hard! Especially when you don’t have a lot of time and you don’t have any recipes memorized! I know that when I do cook, my husband is very appreciative and happy!
So on that same note, I know the way to my hubby’s heart is through his stomach, and he has a huge sweet tooth, so that’s exactly what he will get this Valentine’s Day! My girlfriend Shenae Grimes, who happens to be an amazing actress and blogger over at LostInLaLa.com, is helping me out with this one! She loves to cook and bake and is actually good at it! AND she loves making healthy stuff that still tastes amazing – yay! Shenae did a little research and came up with this easy recipe for Chile Chocolate Covered Strawberries and made them with me!
Check out the recipe below (ingredient list above) and then head on over to Shenae’s blog today to see me return the favor! I gave her some cute styling tips for date night on Valentine’s Day! And even though I tend to dress much girlier that she does, I gave her a few ideas of how to spice up her look for a special occasion!
