The second treat I made just to prove that a homemade Valentine treat can be simple and frugal. A local bakery is selling a dozen (12) chocolate covered strawberries for $25! At this time of year the grocery stores always have deals on fresh strawberries. I bought a package for $2. There were 18 strawberries, but for comparison I will only count the 12 largest in the pack and call the others extra. I had some chocolate on hand already and used about $2 worth. I am up to $4 for a dozen large chocolate covered strawberries. I have nothing against anyone spending $25 for 12 strawberries. It is just not for me.
Then since I still had chocolate left over, I covered some pretzels and pecans.
Hope you have a happy and thrifty holiday!
