Chocolate and Strawberries #Valentine'sDay with Driscoll's

With Valentine's Day just around the love corner, are you in the mood for something sweet? Well, I'm sharing some delicious Valentine's Day recipes for just such an occasion. Chocolate and berries - now there's a match made in heaven. Which one will you try? 

Chocolate and Strawberries:
Did you know 47.6% of consumers gift chocolate on Valentine's Day, making it the number one gift given on February 14th?

This year, show your love with strawberries! Strawberries are not only Valentine's Day ready with their rich red hues but naturally heart-shaped. It's no wonder that so many people just add chocolate covered berries to the end of the meal! It is easy to surprise friends, family or that special someone with recipes like a heart shaped Strawberry Napoleon or classic Chocolate Dipped Strawberries with Sprinkles. 

If you are are thinking about Valentine's Days recipes that are bright, flavorful fun and quick look no further. We have desserts of all kinds for a recipe round up and suggestions for celebrating any occasion.
