Sides: Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

Do your little Valentine's deserve a little treat in their lunch box? Why not Chocolate Dipped Strawberries? Use dark chocolate for a more intense chocolate flavor and because dark chocolate is a potent antioxidant. Sorry milk chocolate lovers, the milk in milk chocolate interferes with the absorption of antioxidants and therefor cannot be called health food. Strawberries are high in vitamin C (even higher than oranges) which is great, especially this time of year.

Happy Dipping!

Look for more healthy Valentine treat ideas this weekend.
