"Se ve delicioso y facil. me puede decir alguna marca del whipped topping o donde conseguirlo?"
"chocolate and strawberries! It doesn't get much better then this! Mine didn't look nearly as pretty, but tasted good anyway!"
"Loved this! The chocolate and strawberries were a fantastic combination. Not overly sweet or rich, and pretty to look at!"
"I dipped the strawberries in a variety of chocolate first and then added the recipe as is. Not only does it look pretty but it tastes good too. Its is a little sweetness just like the recipe says. Thank you."
"great I made these several times and I will make these again i added 1/8 tsp"
"I made this for a home party I recently hosted and it was a huge hit!! I even posted it on my blog under my Receipe section.http://www.coffeewinetea.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=133&action=edit&message=1"
"These were pretty but lacked flavor. The reviewer that added powdered sugar to the mix was on the right track. The other reviewer that used the filling to decorate chocolate dipped berries probably had a lovely plate. But as is, it just didn't taste like anything in particular. Very disappointed."
"I used dark chocolate chips and added a little agave. This was very good, and very easy!!!A special treat for Valentines."
