DIY Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Ok here’s my first try at making chocolate covered strawberries. How did I do? You can be honest at least give me an E for effort and actually trying instead of saying I can’t.

I don’t know what made me decide on chocolate covered strawberries but I knew it couldn’t be that hard. I also love to Do it Yourself (DIY) in the kitchen activities and here’s to many more until I become a pro next thing you know I’ll be charging $3 a strawberry 12 at least (joking but serious)

Are you looking for a DIY activity for the hubs or your man and haven’t thought of anything. Let’s hope your man likes chocolate and strawberries (what are the odds) look a bit fun to have a serious conversation, but hey bae I still love you type of setting. Does romance always lead to the bedroom? (21 + up) maybe he’ll be more shocked and surprised you saved him money (shrugs)

This isn’t a How-To make chocolate covered strawberries recipe it’s more of an I wanted to make chocolate covered strawberries and show you that you can make them too. It’s pretty much self-explanatory I don’t have any tips & tricks to the chocolate I did add a little milk (stir) to keep the chocolate from sticking.

My 1st time trying Villa Jolanda MOSCATO & Strawberry Sparkling bubbly a champagne like wine. It felt like New Years all over again because this is really considered “popping a bottle” but only for $11.99 how much did your New Year cost you? This Sparkling wine is best served with sweets & pastries.

For the dipping chocolate, I used Baker’s it’s real milk chocolate so it’s yummy and good I actually put the chocolate into my Deco Chocolate Fondue I know right had to get fancy I couldn’t just use a bowl and melt the chocolate in the microwave. You can do so much with the Fondue it’s not just for chocolate maybe you want to heat dip, and sauce the possibilities are endless.

Zucco’s Family Restaurant (something for everyone)

Zucco’s Family Restaurant something for everyone!

Ready for some Mediterranean Dining. Want the full experience of Greece without having a passport? Sound good right in fact it sound very good, so leave your passport at home and fly down/up to Zucco’s serving the most tasty dishes from Appetizers, Soups & Salads, (my choice was a Greek Salad & Clam Chowder) Gyros, Burgers, Grinders, Pasta, Casseroles, Vegetarian, Chicken, Veal, Pizza, and many more. Zucco’s hold a seating of 180 seats. No matter what time of the day you stop by there is never a wait. Come check it out and stop by.

Plan on having a party “Private Party Room” for any occasion. You’re not afraid of clowns are you? Guess who will be stopping by every Thursday 5-7pm “Bowey The Clown” kids menu is only .99 bring in the children to be entertained.

I’ve asked around for different reviews on what other customers had to say. I found it interesting to get one from my sister who said “she want to try the Veal Parmesan” unfortunately I didn’t try the Veal Parm I took a slight turn and went for the “Blackened Mediterranean Chicken” $15.99 fresh Chicken breast with Spinach and Tomatoes in a spicy cream sauce over Ziti. I enjoyed it, but I felt it was a little to creamy and could have been drained a little more. At least for my liking someone else might think different.

Drink up the Cranberry $2.59 which is a little more than your average juice or soda beverage (no free refills) “their clientele is more so elders who don’t usually drink all their beverage” Brenda (my waitress). Isn’t this drink just so fancy? I was not expecting this I was looking for a regular tall glass. I didn’t think it was going to be enough and it is more than enough. If your anything like me you are still trying to sip your drink on the way out just so it don’t go to waste.

As a customer walked by my table he stated “This is a nice place” my waitress Brenda added “she wished it got busy for lunch” Without knowing their advertising service after what the waitress replied Zucco’s can probably use a little more marketing.
