 Make some Chocolate Covered Strawberries for Valentine's Day. They are easy to make and the perfect treat for those of you who celebrate.

Those of you who know me in real life know that I hate Valentine’s Day with a passion. I am part of the team that thinks people shouldn’t be forced to show love on one particular day of the year, but since I became a mom my views about this made up holiday have changed a little. I show my kids that I love them every single day of their lives, but on Valentine’s Day I do usually tend to give in to societal norms because of them. This year, we are all going to enjoy some Chocolate Covered Strawberries to “celebrate” Valentine’s Day. Of course, chocolate covered strawberries are good any day, but these ones are a little more festive because I went all out for Valentine’s Day.
