An easy and quick recipe for Chocolate-Covered Strawberries by Josie Riviera

 I love Valentine's Day! The holiday is romantic and fun.  

Today I'm sharing my go-to recipe for Chocolate-Covered Strawberries. It's easy, festive and delicious.


1 pint (2 cups) fresh strawberries

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1 teaspoon vegetable oil


Rinse strawberries and dry on paper towels. Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper. 

In saucepan, melt chocolate chips and oil over low heat and stir frequently. Remove from heat.

Dip the lower half of each strawberry into chocolate mixture; and drip excess back into saucepan. Place on waxed paper lined cookie sheet. 

Refrigerate uncovered for 30 minutes. Store covered in refrigerator.

All his life, he’s followed a song. Is God showing him it’s time to put down roots?

Valentine’s Day is all about love. And God has a special plan for a small-town woman and a road-weary singer.
