We eat a lot of strawberries when they go on sale! We eat them all day for snacks, sides to meals and even dessert. I dip them in chocolate for an extra special dessert treat.
My kids make a huge mess with chocolate dipped strawberries- they hold onto them too long making the chocolate melt in their hot little hands. I thought of filling the strawberries with the chocolate in an attempt to avoid the outrageous chocolately mess.
First I cut the top off my strawberries and then I used a 1/4 teaspoon measuring spoon to scoop out the middle of the top.
I washed the strawberries and let them dry. While they were drying I took some chocolate chips and melted them in the microwave.
I took the same spoon and filled the holes with melted chocolate. I wasn’t sure how to keep them upright and then I had a light bulb moment! I used a mini muffin tin (a regular muffin tin will work; just put two in each and prop them up). They stayed upright and kept the chocolate in place!
These present well, too, and would be great for a party. You can even top them with coconut, almonds, chocolate sprinkles or whatever you can come up with!
