What You Need

  • 12 to 16 Strawberries
  • 1/2 cup of Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 1 tsp of Vegetable Oil
  • Crushed peanuts (optional)
  • Parchment paper
  • Skewers

DIRECTIONS

Melt the Chocolate

Fill the bottom of a medium saucepan with an inch or two of water and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Set a heatproof bowl over the simmering water and add the semi-chocolate chips and vegetable oil. Let the chocolate melt, making sure to stir occasionally to avoid any lumps. Once the chocolate is at a smooth consistency, simply remove the bowl from the heat.

Time to Dip the Strawberries

Step 1: Gently rinse strawberries and dry on paper towels. Make sure you dry the strawberries completely or the chocolate won’t stick properly. Line a cookie sheet with waxed or parchment paper. You can also use a styrofoam board if you want to create a more professional look.

Step 2 & 3: For more control when coating the strawberries, pierce each strawberry with a skewer.

Step 4: Dip each strawberry three-fourths of the way. Lightly shake each strawberry over the chocolate mixture to get a smooth coating. Gently sprinkle the crushed peanuts (or toppings) while the chocolate is still wet so it slings to the chocolate dipped strawberry.

Step 5: Lay each dipped strawberry onto the cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or gently stick each strawberry skewer on the styrofoam. Tip: If you use the styrofoam method, make sure to take off as much excess chocolate as possible to avoid it dripping down the strawberry.

Step 6: Now pop them in the refrigerator uncovered for at least 30 minutes or until chocolate is firm. After this time, keep them in a plastic container in the refrigerator until they’re ready to eat.

And voila, you’re done!

Create the Happy Galentine’s Day Lunch Boxes

Putting together these cute lunch boxes are so incredibly easy but add that little extra touch. Now we went for small Chinese-takeout boxes in different variants of pink, as well as a pack of ‘sweetheart candy’ foam heart stickers to seal each box.

To assemble, fill each box, making sure to alternate between each item. We went with the following setup:

  • 1 box of two (or three, depending on size of takeout) pinwheel sandwiches
  • 1 box of 2 Chocolate covered strawberries
  • 1 box filled ¾ of the way of the Sweet & Spicy mixed nuts

Repeat the process until all the food has been distributed evenly.

Next, simply close the boxes, add a foam sticker to the top, and put it in a basket, paper bag or gift bag. You can also include a bottle of water or juice too.

I used to cook for my wife from time to time, but I have never tried to make her a lunch box before. It’s going to be a huge surprise for her when she gets her valentines gift tomorrow. I gotta find a secret kitchen to prepare it so that she won’t know that I am preparing lunch.
