Making Chocolate Covered Strawberries for Teacher Gifts

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Decided to make chocolate covered strawberries for the kids’ CCD teachers’ year end gift.  There are six of them – what to do that’s special without breaking the bank??  I’d gotten some positively delicious berries at Costco earlier in the week and so this was a no-brainer.  The berries are quite easy to do especially with the chocolate pre-softened in the 90 degree weather here….it was the stupid candy boxes that did me in.  This girl will not be signing up for any oragami classes any time soon – this paper folding is for the birdies!  I managed to assemble 4 of the 6 with no damage and camouflaged any mishaps with some red, white and blue silk flowers and a nice little ribbon.  Martha’s got nothing on me!!!!

P.S.  This was a great way to get rid of that nasty 84% cacao dark chocolate shizzle I got at Trader Joe’s last Friday.  Silly me, I thought the little green nut-like thing on the package meant there were pistachios in there.  Imagine my surprise when I bit into a piece of this bitterest chocolate I’ve ever put into my mouth…..I mean, burnt coffee tastes better than this stuff.  So I bought some milk chocolate morsels and melted in the silly dark chocolate and made the berries semi-sweet…..waste not want not!!

P.P.S. for readers as silly as me, read on – I couldn’t resist putting the post through the Gizoogle translator….I think I’m addicted to this and may start filtering all of my writing through here….or not!
