Chewy chocolate brownies topped with strawberries and chocolate ganache are the perfect dessert for Valentine’s Day or summer picnic.
When I was a little girl I loved making Valentine’s Day boxes for school. It was one of my favorite activities and I’m pretty sure that I had an awesome boom box, box for at least three years in a row. It was always so exciting to see everyone’s boxes and to give and receive Valentine cards.
As I got older I still liked Valentine’s Day, I guess I am just a big lover of love. I like the colors and treats and flowers. I love the idea of giving some extra love to those you love the most. I know that we should share our love everyday, but for some reason the whole novelty of it is just fun.
When Myron and I started dating we celebrated our first Valentine’s Day together. I got him a watch that he still has and he bought me a bouquet of roses and a gift card to Barns and Nobel. I thought it was so thoughtful of him because he knew how much I liked to read. I’m pretty sure we went to dinner or something that night but what I remember most is that he took the time to think of something that I would love.
I think that is the secret to making Valentine’s Day a success. Don’t worry about the money, but make it thoughtful and fun and it will turn out perfect.
Speaking of perfect, lets talk about these chocolate covered strawberry brownies.
Don’t they look so good? Give them a try, make some for your Valentine.
