Chocolate's in the air -Sweet treats- Happy Valentine's Day !!

Edible bouquet

Chocolate covered strawberries,Oreo cookies and marshmallows

If it's Valentine's Day there has to be chocolate  in the celebration.These chocolate covered strawberries,marshmallows and Oreo cookies are a breeze to make and super to taste.
Tip: Use the highest-quality chocolate you can buy. Good chocolate has a glossy sheen and a smooth taste.

Ingredients: 1 cup Ghirardelli semi sweet chocolate chips
4 tbsp heavy cream
8-10 strawberries
8-10 Oreo cookies
8-10 large marshmallows
bamboo skewers

Directions: Melt the chocolate and the heavy cream in a double boiler ( Fill a pot with 3 inches of water.Bring it to a boil.Place a thick glass bowl on top of the  pot .Add the chocolate  and heavy cream in the bowl and keep whisking with a fork till it melts and forms a smooth glossy velvety liquid.The  chocolate should only melt with the steam from the water i.e the water should not touch the bowl.Turn off the heat and let cool for 2 mins. Dip the strawberries last or they'll get cooked  in the hot chocolate.. Skewer the fruits and marshmallows .Dip in the chocolate and allow to dry on a wax paper. Cut a cantaloupe in half and use it as the base of your edible bouquet to arrange the skewered strawberries and marshmallows. You can use any other fruits of your choice. Get the kids to pitch in .They'll love it. Enjoy your creation.!!!
