Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Oatmeal

I know exactly what you’re thinking right now, “Oatmeal has to be the sexiest food on the planet!” Oh, no? That’s not what you were thinking? Maybe I can change your mind with some word play. Here are some reasons as to why you should indulge in this indulgent oatmeal dish for V-day (or any day, really): This oatmeal is rich and creamy, with cocoa running all through-out and a smooth mouth feel. Each bite is a luscious treat, with a little surprise from small pieces of tart, warm strawberry…

And it only takes about 8 minutes to put together. I’m pretty sure that’s the sexiest part! ;) Of course, you can double up this recipe and share it with someone you think fondly of, or perhaps even loooove. Yes, I’m a child. Either way, I think V-day is a cute reminder to indulge in some fantastic food and have a good time with loved ones, whether they be your friends, family or significant other.

So, forget the double-boiler for the chocolate, and make this one-pot meal to start your day of romance and self-love off right!

  1. Holy moly! I love oatmeal, every day of the week! This looks fantastic. Think I could make it in the crockpot over night?

    Ohhhhh…I had oatmeal this morning but it was before this post and not at all sexy! I will do better next time, you can bet on that! 

  3. It would be totally fun to serve this in two tall champagne flutes with elegant heart-topped spoons…would that be bo-haute-meal-chic? lol
    Anyway, it looks crazydelicious…thanks for the recipe! ;)

      It’s so funny that you say that, because I was thinking, “This would be GREAT with Champagne!” Clearly, great minds think alike. :D

  4. I’m an oatmeal-every-morning person (as you can tell I live my life on the edge…). Oatmeal that looks/tastes like dessert gives me reason to get up in the mornings.

  5. Forget breakfast! I want this for dessert!

  6. Yum! This would be the perfect breakfast that’s still healthy but a bit more “special” for V-day, thanks for the idea!

    Oatmeal may not be sexy, but chocolate certainly is! This sounds absolutely delicious. I for one will never say no to chocolate for breakfast :)

  8. Oatmeal is definitely one of the sexiest foods around! And I’m not saying that just because a few v-days ago I posted a recipe for oatmeal with yogurt and lots of bright red raspberry jam (although it obviously came to mind, haha). Love the idea of punching it up even more with all that beautiful dark chocolate.

  9. WHOAAAAA Jackie, that oatmeal looks phenomenal!

  10. Drooling with chocolate envy right now!

  11. I’m definitely going to try this!!

    I make this often….like too often, but feel no guilt when eating it!! I am not a fan of strawberries, so I switched out bananas and even added some PB2 ~ so DELICIOUS!!

Got something to say? Leave it here!
