Medicated Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Gives a whole new meaning to edible arrangements. No delivery necessary with this fruity dessert!


  • 1 Pound strawberries with stems (about 20), washed and dried very well
  • 1 100mg Bar of Happy Valley chocolate  (Dark or Milk)


  1. Start by washing the strawberries and then drying them VERY well. If the strawberries are the least bit wet the chocolate will not stick!
  2. Next break up and place the chocolate into it’s a shallow microwaveable bowl or mug
  3. Microwave the chocolate at 50% power for 30 seconds intervals, removing and stirring at each 30 second interval, until the chocolate has melted. Stir often, making sure not to burn the chocolate!
  4. Holding a strawberry by the stem, only dip halfway into the chocolate, lift and twist slightly, letting the excess chocolate fall back into the bowl. At this point you may dip the strawberry in coconut flakes, crushed candy canes or nuts (or leave it plain) and then place the strawberry on the parchment paper. Repeat with the rest of the strawberries.
  5. For a chocolate drizzled strawberry, dip a fork in the melted white chocolate and drizzle the white chocolate over the dipped strawberries.
  6. Chill the strawberries until the chocolate sets, about 15 minutes.
  7. Keep refrigerated. Best consumed in one or two days.



Happy Valley Quick Infused Mug Cake

Who says it needs to be your birthday to have cake? Celebrate every day with this TCH Treat!


  • ¼ cup +1 ½ tsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • Dash of salt
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 square of your Favorite Happy Valley Chocolate bar
  • 1 TBL your favorite frosting
  • 1tsp sprinkles (optional)


  1. Add flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt to the mug and stir together. Set aside.
  2. Add Butter and Chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Heat in the microwave in 10 second increments until Chocolate and Butter are melted together
  3. Pour milk, vanilla extract, and melted butter/chocolate mix into the mug until smooth. Be sure to scrape the bottom of the mug while stirring. Add in Sprinkles.
  4. Cook in microwave for 70-90 seconds* (until cake is just set, but still barely shiny on top). Allow to rest in microwave for 1 minute before consuming.
  5. Add one tablespoon of frosting once cake is cool and enjoy.


  • Because all microwaves are different, it’s difficult to give a precise cook time. Start with 70 seconds, wait 1 minute while it cools, then look to see if it is set. Add an additional 15-25 seconds if needed. Allow it to rest in the microwave for 1 minute.
  • The trick with mug cakes is to stop cooking the cake earlier than you think, because you want it to be soft on the inside, and the cake will also continue to cook as it cools.
