A Yummy Valentine's Day Treat

When we were doing our grocery shopping, we found these large strawberries still on the stem.  Since it's getting close to Valentine's Day, they had a whole lot to choose from.  The way I choose my strawberries is not just by looks, I smell them.  If they don't have that beautiful strawberry smell, I don't get them.  I kept going back to the large stemmed strawberries, made in the USA.

So, we have yummy looking and smelling strawberries what should we do with them?  Normally I would be happy with just cutting them up and adding a little sugar or just eating them whole.  Can't do that this close to Valentine's Day.  We had to do chocolate covered strawberries.  I didn't want to go through the hassle of melting chocolate so, I bought the new Jif Whips.  I bought the chocolate and peanut flavored kind.

Came home and cleaned the strawberries (check out my post from yesterday on how to clean fruits).

After they were cleaned, I put them in a container in the fridge.  Yesterday I decided to try out the Jif Whip.  It wasn't too bad.  Tasted like a chocolate covered strawberry that had been rolled in peanuts.  Very easy to either dip your strawberries in or take a knife to and spread on the strawberry.  Give it a try!  It reminded me of the Shari Berries I got a few years ago from my husband for Valentine's Day.
