[dropcap custom_class=”normal”] S [/dropcap]o I have some updates for you guys! Fiest one is, I decided to stop that plugin that was reposting old content. Why? Well, wasn’t working out the way I thought.
I thought it would help me with SEO and force me to update those old posts. It didn’t. I got actually overwhelmed and could not update those posts like I wanted. So back to the old I will update and post when I can.
Another update is Wine and Lipstick! The second post is The Sex of It All With A Salted Caramel Kahlua Layer Shot. It is getting a nice reception like the first post on it did. So because people like the vice and due to requests, that blog will have a cocktail every post.
I thought I do an occasional cocktail recipe on it. I also know that what you think at first for blogging can turn directions. You have to let the blog speak and that is what direction it went in. So please check out Wine and Lipstick, you might find it entertaining if you like the Sex in the City show.

- Pull the strawberry out and give a little shake to remove the excess chocolate.
- Put the strawberry onto the wax paper lined cookie sheet.
- Put the strawberries in the fridge for about 30 minutes after you get them dipped.
- Next, using about a cup of the pink candy melts, put them into a metal bowl, like you did with the milk chocolate ones.
- Bring the water to a boil again and place the bowl on the hot water, like you did up above with the milk chocolate.
- Once the pink is all smooth and melted. take the strawberries out the fridge.
- Take a fork and dip into the melted chocolate.
- Shake the chocolate on the fork back and forth over the strawberries. so you can "stripe" them.
- Once they look good. Place them back in the fridge for other 30 minutes.
- Once the chocolate is set up on the strawberries, Serve them up and ENJOY!
- The secret to chocolate covered strawberries is make sure the strawberries are dry when you dip them. You can rinse them off, but just be sre they are dry. If wet the chocolate doesnt like to stick as well.
- I recommend just before you dip the strawberries, just take a paper towl and do quick patdown on them to make sure they are 100% dry.
