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 chocolate in an attempt to avoid the outrageous chocolate mess.
First I cut the top off my strawberries and then I used a 1/2 teaspoon measuring spoon to scoop out the middle of the top.
I washed the strawberries and let them dry on some paper towels. 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 cupcake pan and put two in each. They stayed upright and kept the chocolate in place!
After the chocolate hardened (I was in a hurry so I put in in the freezer!) I gave them to the boys. K thought the chocolate inside was amazing!
Baby G still managed to make a mess…but all over his face- not so much on his hands! These are a nice change of pace and you can even top them with coconut, almonds, chocolate sprinkles or whatever you can come up with!
