Valentines Day is coming soon. So for those of you who aren't usually romantic with your spouse throughout the year here is your chance. Don't do the same typical things that you usually do on Valentines Day, like going to dinner or movie. Step outside the box do something different, like cook a romantic dinner, make some sexy deserts, like chocolate covered strawberries with champagne. If you're not the cooking type, treat yourself and hire a chef. Godiva always has a great variety of chocolates and chocolate coered strawberries. For the the ladies, don't forget your sexy lingerie for your guy. If you are a lingerie girl your guy is use to treats. Those women who are t-shirt, cotton pajama kind of girls, surprise him with some sexy lace. Men love a woman is lingerie, especially his woman. Create the mood with some massage oil candles like Jimmy Jane. We know that men are simple, so it doesn't take a lot to please them. This Saturday Latres Lingerie will be passing out complimentary chocolate covered strawberries and champagne.
Chocolate Covered Strawberry Recipe
6 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
3 ounces white chocolate, chopped
1 pound strawberries with stems (about 20), washed and dried very well
Put the semisweet and white chocolates into 2 separate heatproof medium bowls. Fill 2 medium saucepans with a couple inches of water and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Turn off the heat; set the bowls of chocolate over the water to melt. Stir until smooth. (Alternatively, melt the chocolates in a microwave at half power, for 1 minute, stir and then heat for another minute or until melted.)
Once the chocolates are melted and smooth, remove from the heat. Line a sheet pan with parchment or waxed paper. Holding the strawberry by the stem, dip the fruit into the dark chocolate, lift and twist slightly, letting any excess chocolate fall back into the bowl. Set strawberries on the parchment paper. Repeat with the rest of the strawberries. Dip a fork in the white chocolate and drizzle the white chocolate over the dipped strawberries.
Set the strawberries aside until the chocolate sets, about 30 minutes.
