Homemade Valentines Day Cards And Chocolate Covered Strawberries :)

I have been quite busy over the past day or so, whoosh! I have been feverishly making my sons Valentines Day Cards for his class, along with a cute little thing for his teacher AND I had to go and make us some chocolate covered strawberries toΒ  nibble on as we sweat over these crafts!

Wanna see what we have done?

First off, I searched the internet for free printable Valentines Day Cards/Crafts and came across the “Toad-ally Awesome” V-day cards and HAD to do this for my sons class πŸ™‚

“Toad-ally” cute, right?!? I thought so!

I just used HP Photo Paper, cuz that is all I had and then I went to 4 different stores last night, to find those froggies!! I finally found them at the Dollar Store, yay!!!

I then went to Picnik (which will be closing on April 19th for no apparent reason other than to irritate me I believe…) and added the font that says “From: Zaden“. You can find out EXACTLY how to make these adorable Valentines Day Cards and get the printable template, by visiting “Crap I’ve Made“. I love that site, it toad-ally rocks, LOL (can’t stop saying that!).

Then, I did that cute I Heart Minnie Printable Valentines Day Box, for my sons teacher! I filled it with a goodie or two πŸ™‚

Next, I got it in my head to make some delicious chocolate covered strawberries! The strawberries were totally big, red and juicy at the store and the price was great! So, I grabbed two plastic cartons of them and then I headed to the baking isle where I found something I have never seen before…

Baker's Dipping Chocolate

Baker’s Dipping Chocolate and it is microwavable!!! Why on earth have I not spotted this before?! It is my newest BFF! It has chocolate chips in it and you just peel off the top and microwave it until the chocolate is melted, easy peasy!!!!

Then comes the fun part! I just washed up those strawberries, dried them and dipped them!!

I lined a cookie sheet with wax paper so that the berries would not stick, and once they were all dipped I placed them into the fridge to chill for about 15 minutes.

Oh. My. Goodness. They were GOOD. I mean REAL good. Like I paid someone to make them, good! Mmmmmmm….

“Happy Valentines Day!!!”
