Where To Buy Chocolate Covered Strawberries In Las Vegas
We had our wedding at the MGM 2 weeks ago and the chapel sent us up champagne and chocolate covered strawberries along with rose petals shaped in a heart on the bed while we were out...it was awesome! Since they did this as an apology for a limo mixup, I am not sure what the cost of that service is...but I am sure it is available....just ask at your hotel.
where to buy chocolate covered strawberries in las vegas
Blaire Churches: Must haves: the eclairs, the cream puffs, the cookies and cream cupcakes, the lemon cake cookies (UHMAZING), and the chocolate cake with the strawberries all through the middle (I forget the name)
Last Friday, my coworker (hi, Chris!) told me that he was going to buy a chocolate covered strawberry at Godiva for his fiance, but Godiva was going to charge him $7. SEVEN dollars for ONE strawberry!!! Can you believe that? Yes, I realize it's probably because of something called Valentine's Day, but that's just a robbery in my eyes, especially when making chocolate covered strawberries at home is relatively easy.How do you make chocolate covered strawberries at home? Read on!Lucky for me, this weekend Harris Teeter had strawberries and chocolate on sale! Two boxes of strawberries for $4.99 and two packages of Ghirardelli chocolate chips for $5.00! That means you can make about 50 strawberries for $10.00 and still have some chocolate left over.Ingredients25 strawberries1/2 bag (or about 6 ounces) Ghirardelli Premium Baking 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate chips I realize that many of you will tell me I should have used bars of chocolate, but chips are just so much easier for me. Of course you can choose whichever chocolate type/brand/variety you like!1/3 cup white chocolate chipsDirections1. Set up a double boiler: put a little bit of water in a pan, bring it to a simmer. Put a metal bowl on top, making sure it doesn't touch the water. Add your dark chocolate and stir using a spatula till it melts. Take it off the heat. If you have a microwave, I decided not to buy one since my new condo didn't come with it, you can melt your chocolate in a microwave.2. Dip your strawberries. I used toothpicks. Scroll below to see how that turned out!3. Set your strawberries on parchment paper. Note: I found it rather difficult to peel off the strawberries from the parchment. I also used wax paper with the same result. What worked best, was to pop them in the refrigerator for about 10-15 minutues.4. After the chocolate hardens, give it about 45 minutes, melt the white chocolate. Add it to a Ziploc bag, cut the tip and drizzle over the strawberries.You'd think this would be easy, right? WRONG. The chocolate began to harden almost as soon as I put it in the bag. And it was really hot! I ended up using a kitchen towel to hold the bag and drizzled as many strawberries as I could.5. Let the white chocolate harden. This would only take about 10-15 minutes.So what did I do with all these strawberries? Well, I ate a few. Or maybe a bit more than a few. But I left the rest of them for Sunday (yesterday) because I had some of my friends come over. According to SassyRadish, I was supposed to leave them out covered with a towel. But to me it seemed a bit dangerous. So I put them in the refrigerator over night.Wrong! Don't do it. The berries start to release some of the juices as they sit in the fridge and it's just not pretty. Plus, I probably should not have used toothpicks....as that too allowed the moisture to be released. They still looked ok, and tasted ok, but ok is not good enough when you have people coming over.So I went back to the store, bought more strawberries and dipped those in dark chocolate sans toothpicks and sans white chocolate. The photos in here are of the ones I made on Saturday prior to refrigeration.Lessons learned: Don't use toothpicks. Don't use white chocolate unless you really love it. Make these the day you'll serve them. Don't pop them in the fridge, unless you do so only for about 15 minutes to harden the chocolate before serving it.If you are celebrating Valentine's Day, enjoy it!!!!PS it was just brought to my attention that I spelled "tomato" wrong in all of the watermarks in this post...oops! I'm just going to leave them the way they are, but luckily can change it for the next 3 posts. Thanks Dusty!!
Hello, I found your blog off Google. I too had the same experience the first time. Since then I have found a few tricks and now it is so easy. At Hobby Lobby they have a 2lb bag of milk chocolate chip melts for $5.99. They also carry microwaveable melting trays, 3 for about $3-$4. You fill the tray up with chips and microwave for 30 sec stir and microwave again. This step usually takes 3-4 times. Then dip the strawberries and place on wax paper. I cool the strawberries first that way they harden faster plus pull off easier. They taste awesome!!

In our house, any excuse to make chocolate covered strawberries is a good excuse. And with the 4th of July rapidly approaching it only made sense to create some patriotic 4th of July chocolate covered strawberries! What I like the most besides the fact that it is strawberries and chocolate is that this is easy. I love recipes that are easy to make but look good. These look patriotic and they are perfect to take to a 4th of July BBQ.
Then, in what some might consider a foolhardy effort to top his previous Cirque masterpiece with another water-based dreamscape, he conceived and directed Le Reve, Las Vegas' first arena-style aquatic spectacle. Many changes were added after the show opened to mixed reviews - which inevitably compared Dragone's efforts to his previous work on O - but Steve Wynn asked Dragone to return in the spring of 2007 to revamp Le Reve. After a monthlong hiatus, the show reopened in April with new choreography and a greater atmosphere of luxury amid new seating and a deluxe VIP seating option that includes champagne, chocolate-covered strawberries and video monitors offering peeks backstage and from the ceiling looking down at the round lake-stage.
