I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

Always a classic!
All you need is chocolate and some nice big strawberries!

Once you wash the berries make very sure that they are completely dry before dipping, otherwise things just won't go right.

Melt some semi sweet or dark chocolate in the microwave, 20 seconds at a time, until almost melted. Add a little solid shortening (Crisco). I added about 1/4 tsp to 4 oz of chocolate. Stir until completely melted then dip the berries in one at a time. Set them on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Melt some white chocolate for the drizzle but melt it very slowly as white chocolate for some reason has more tendancy to seize. Once it's nice a smooth spoon it into a small plastic baggie, snip the corner and drizzle.
Sprinkle on some coloured sugar before the chocolate sets.
Keep refrigerated until 30 minutes before serving.

Make a bunch...they go fast!
