Chocolate Covered Stawberries

Every spring I look forward to the price of berries dropping to a reasonable price. I still consider them a splurge, but one I'm willing to work into our budget.

And even better than juicy berries are ones covered in chocolate! We're having some friends over tonight for date night, including dinner and games. As we work our way closer to spring break, weeks seem to take forever! So, to celebrate Friday and date night, here are some chocolate covered strawberries!

I dipped some strawberries and drizzled on some red melts. I quickly made up little tags (using the font Kravitz, free here), popped the strawberries in lollipop bags and stapled it all shut. Ten minute favors (not counting the time it took the chocolate to set up) for a Friday night date.

What occasion could you celebrate with some chocolate dipped strawberries?

One more thing-- save those empty strawberry cartons. I have an idea for re-purposing them coming up on Monday!


  1. mmmmm....they look so yummy! And what a cute idea to put them in little lollipop bags! Love it.

  2. It looks amazing! Can I ask you more about the free font. Do you just download and use in Word? I guess I am nervous about downloading it for some reason. Would love your expert advice! :)
