Valentines Day Edition- Recipe to Try: Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Ingredients

4 ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 pound strawberries (about 20), washed and patted dry

Directions

  1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. In a microwave-safe glass bowl, microwave the chocolate, stopping and stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth.
  2. Holding a strawberry by the stem end, dip it in the melted chocolate, letting the excess drip off, then transfer to the prepared baking sheet. As you set the strawberry down, slide it ½ inch to the side to prevent the formation of a chocolate “foot.” Repeat with the remaining berries.Final-Chocolate-Covered-Strawberries-Side-View-300x224

pizzaa

Have you ever had a lazy day, where you were just too tired to really make anything at all? I have had PLENTY of those! This is probably one of the first pinterest recipes that I have ever tried! It is funny, easy and definitely a great finger food dish to try! It is great for the football or basketball season when you have company over and you want to make a dish for the masses. I sometimes make it  this when I am wiped out by all the things  I had done that day, I will throw this in the oven for a quick bite.  All you need is 3 ingredients for the basic pizza muffins and any additional ingredients, is if you want to have additional toppings. Any guy, girl or kid ( with supervision and help of course) could make this easily! I always feel better about eating these because it is mini portions 😉

 

What You Need:
-Pillsbury Refrigerated Pizza Dough, (but sometimes I use Pillsbury Biscuit Dough as well)
-Pizza Sauce or Marinara Sauce
-Shredded Cheese
– Toppings -( i.e.- Pepperoni, sausage, etc… – whatever topping you choose)
-Cupcake Tin (I happen to use  muffin tin so the pizzas became bigger)

  • Non Stick Cooking Oil Spray

Directions:
1.)Preheat oven to 375 degrees  and spray the tin with non stick cooking oil spray the cupcake pan.
I separated the dough into 4 equal parts; there wasn’t enough to do more but maybe you could get 6 in cupcake pan. Push the dough into the molds; try to make the dough cover the sides.

2.)Within dough spoon  pizza sauce,  then top it off with cheese and pepperoni.

4.) Now get ready to have SOME AMAZING TREATS!
