Ahh…Chocolate…I love pretty much anything chocolate! If you are Chocolate Lover…you are going to LOVE this post! I’m very honored to call Susan Branch, an amazing author and artist, my friend. When I tweeted her that I couldn’t find my Valentine Love Book, she quickly replied and offered to email me her Chocolate Menu and Chocolate Eclairs Recipe! I tried to order a new book on Amazon, but unfortunately they are out of print. I’m so excited that Susan offered to share them with me…and you!

I decided to add these Gourmet Chocolate Dipped Strawberries to the Chocolate Menu! Valentine’s Day is tomorrow and these would make the perfect Valentine’s Day gift or for any special celebration.

I’ve been making Chocolate Dipped Strawberries for many years, with just a few simple ingredients you can make these little decadent treats. After seeing the recent commercials for Gourmet Chocolate Dipped Strawberries, I knew I needed to give them a try and share them with you.

The topping ideas are endless, for these I used crushed Oreos, Peanut Butter Cookies, and Sprinkles. I think it would also be fun to match the sprinkles to your birthday party theme or maybe a Bachelorette Party.

But for today…we decorated them for Valentine’s Day. Wouldn’t your sweetie love getting a box filled with these Gourmet Chocolate Dipped Strawberries? I know I would!
