Carrot Strawberries [Fun Kids’ Treat]

I love treats that are both easy to make and have an adorable final result- these carrot strawberries fit the bill! While they look like a fancy store bought goody they are simple enough that the kids can help put them together.  They would make a fun Spring treat for child’s class (or teacher), a yummy addition to brunch, or for no reason at all.

INGREDIENTS

1 lb Strawberries

8 oz Orange Candy Melting Chips

Orange Sparkling Sugar (optional)

carrot strawberry ingredients

 

 

DIRECTIONS

Gently fluff stems upward on strawberries.

Place strawberries in freezer for 10-15 minutes.

Melt chocolate by microwaving for 30 seconds, stirring and repeating until melted and smooth.

Get a piece of wax or parchment paper large enough to hold all strawberries.

Use a spoon to spread chocolate near the stem around the top.

carrot dip

Holding by the stem either dip or spoon chocolate over the berry.

Optionally you can sprinkle with sparkling sugar.

Place on paper.

By chilling in the freezer, the chocolate will set up immediately.

    Oh how cute! At first I thought it was a carrot that you made into the shape of a strawberry.
