Inside Out Chocolate Strawberries

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!
