Shopping today at Trader Joe’s I found beautiful & delicious long stemmed strawberries, and their Pounds Plus chocolate bars for 4.99 each! The strawberries were 5.99 per dozen (Limited Edition brand). I used the Pounds Plus 72% to dip the strawberries, and Pounds Plus Milk Chocolate to decorate. Unfortunately, they didn’t have any white chocolate. I miss the days when they used to have bins of dark, milk and white chocolate, broken into gargantuan chunks, wrapped tightly in plastic wrap! When I asked an associate, he said they don’t have white chocolate at any other time except for Christmas! I really wanted to know why, but my friend who I was shopping with gave me the “Mary, don’t start look”! I had to go to Lucky’s for Ghirardelli white chocolate chips for melting (2 bags for 5.00, they are usually 4.29 per bag!!!). Awesome deal! I spent today dipping strawberries with my friend Don on his birthday, and we decided to take pictures of the process and share it with you.
Gotta go check the oven!…….
