Over the next few weeks I plan to make some Valentine’s Day inspired recipes. There’s nothing like a homemade meal to show the people we love how much we care for them. I do enjoy a good theme so look out for my love inspired recipes. Depending on where you live there may not be many restaurants around for you to take the object of your affections for a fancy meal. So making something at home could be just the ticket. Apartments are small and kitchen are even smaller, but anyone can rustle up some chocolate covered strawberries from a quick trip to Homeplus. They taste great and will be sure to woo the one you love. Paired with a bottle of champagne or sparkling wine, you can’t go wrong.


1 box of strawberries

150g of couverture chocolate (I buy mine at the bakers mart, but the Tesco finest brand at Homeplus works great too)

parchment paper


Melt the chocolate in a dry glass or metal bowl over a pan of simmering water. Meanwhile pat your strawberries with kitchen roll to make sure they are dry too. When the chocolate has completely melted dip the strawberries in one at a time, then put them on a piece of parchment paper stalk side down to dry. Put the strawberries in the fridge or in a cold room to set. Then enjoy with your special someone and a glass of bubbly. Voilà  an easy Valentine’s Day dessert.

  1. Hello, I just stumbled upon your blog. I also currently live in Seoul. Would you happen to know where I can actually buy chocolate covered strawberries? I want to purchase them for a friend’s birthday. I appreciate any help that you can give, thanks!

    • I don’t think I have actually seen them anywhere for sale but they really are very easy to make. There are various chocolate shops that you could try. Let me know if you want the names. You could always get your friend some cupcakes for their birthday. There are quite a few nice places around Seoul. x

    • A week ago, you could buy individual ones from street stalls in Myeongdong….near forever 21. I think they also did small pots with them in 😀
