Getting my Valentine’s Day on with homemade chocolate-covered strawberries! This cost about $6 to make vs $24 for the pre-packaged ones from Von’s (seriously, wtf?).
And it only take about 15 mins. Oh yeaaaaahhhh
Protip: Sprinkle them with a little gray sel de fleur or other fine-grained sea salt while the chocolate sets. The salt will heighten the berry’s sweetness and the chocolate’s depth.
Toss everything into a blender, starting with 1/2 cup of milk. Blend together, 30-60 seconds. Taste and adjust: thin it with more milk; make it sweeter with more dates, etc.
Make extra, because this tastes like a dark chocolate and strawberry truffle. Meaning, you’ll want to chug it.
