1) Make Chocolate Covered strawberries

These are so easy to make. The cost of the ones at the store are ridiculous. All you need is good melting chocolate and nice big strawberries.

First Melt the chocolate

Then Dip the strawberries a little over 3/4 of the way

Lastly put them in the freezer or fridge to allow the chocolate to harden

2. Design a fun dessert “charcuterie board”

Here are a couple that I have made

These dessert boards are fun for the whole family to make – get creative!

3. Put together an awesome S’mores platter

I have step by step instructions for you HERE

S’more family fun please!

4. Have a foodie fondue night

Fondue is super easy to make – all you need is a fondue pot and sterno or a double boiler.

For the Chocolate… You can use chocolate chips or melting discs

For the dippers … we use strawberries, bananas, marshmallows, gluten free pretzels , and small pieces of cake or brownies

Everyone thinks fondue is fun!

5. Make homemade heart-shaped Pizza

Full transparency – I hit the easy button on these pizzas pictured and they are from Lidl. But homemade pizza is easy and fun to make and tastes SO much better.

Once you have a great crust – top with whatever sauce and topping your family likes.

Here is a great pizza dough recipe adapted from my son Landon’s favorite – the Fannie Farmer cookbook

You will need:

1 1/3 cups warm water

1 pkg of dry yeast
4 cups flour ( as well as some more to flour your working surface
2 t sea salt ( I always use pink Himalayan salt)
2 T oil ( we use avocado oil)

To Make Dough

Dissolve the yeast In 1/3 cup warm water. Let it hang out for 5 minutes.  Add 2 cups of the flour, the oil, 1 cup of warm water and the salt; mix it .  Add more flour, 1/2 cup at a time, mixing well until it holds together.  On a floured hard surface work the dough until it is smooth.  Place in an oiled bowl, covered with a kitchen towel, for a couple hours to allow it to rise.   Once it has doubled, punch it down with your fist and divide into two balls.  Shape the dough out on the pizza pan, to make two dough hearts

Pre-heat the oven to 400

Assemble pizzas

Cook for 20-25 minutes or until nicely browned and bubbly
