Valentine’s Day is celebrated on February 14. It is a festival of romantic love and many people give cards, letters, flowers or presents to their spouse or partner.The most common Valentine’s Day symbols are the heart, particularly in reds and pinks, and pictures or models of Cupid. Cupid is usually portrayed as a small winged figure with a bow and arrow. In mythology, he uses his arrow to strike the hearts of people. People who have fallen in love are sometimes said to be ‘struck by Cupid’s arrow. Other symbols of Valentine’s Day are couples in loving embraces and the gifts of flowers, chocolate, red roses and lingerie that couples often give each other.
As we approach Valentine Day this year i thought of making these No Bake Mini Chocolate Strawberry Pies which can be whipped up in a jiffy. A perfect recipe for all those need last minute ideas or due to time constraints they are unable to whip up anything special.
As a part of our 79th #Foodiemonday #Bloghop theme of #Valentine’sSpecial recipes, my contribution is this quick and easy No Banke Mini Chocolate Strawberry Pies.
12 Double Chocochip Cookies
3 Tbsp Butter
1.5 Cups Chocolate Chips (Semi sweet)
10 Fresh Strawberries Halved
Colourful Sprinklers for Garnish
Pulse the chocochip cookies in a blender untill you get fine crumbs. Add butter and pulse untill the mixture holds together.Line a muffin tray with cup cake liners.Press the cookie crumb mixture into each liner.
Put the semi sweet choco chips in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for a minute. Stir in at 15 secs interval and microwave untill the chocolate is smooth and melted.Add this chocolate mixture on top of the cookie crumb in the cup cake liners.Press the halved strawberries into the chocolate. Place the muffin tray in the freezer for about 20 mins or untill the chocolate is firm. Garnish with some colourful sprinklers just befoe serving.
