Just sending warm wishes to all my readers and passerbys.
My husband and I personally don’t celebrate Valentines. Aside from my oldest doing a Valentines exchange at school, there is no celebration.
I will be on my second day of dipping Strawberries at work for the masses to buy their sweethearts or eat with a glass of champagne on their own.
I would honestly recommend purchasing your own fondue pot and melting chocolate yourself. Or you can use a bowl and microwave your chocolate (but you would need to eat/use it pretty quickly)
If you are single this could be something fun to do with friends. If you want to impress a sweetheart, it can be a fun and a sexy activity rolled into one. And you can dip more than Strawberries. Small cake bites, other fruits like bananas, oranges, grapes, melon, kiwi, marshmallows, pretzels, chips. You name it it can usually be dipped and taste pretty decent. Forget all the fancy dinner reservations and stay home for dessert.
Rather than spend a whole lot of money for half a dozen to 1 dozen strawberries already dipped try DIY.
Again, Happy Valentines Day!
