Strawberries are in season right now so we have been eating them at just about every meal. The kids asked if we could make chocolate covered strawberries for dessert and I kept putting it off. It was late, I was tired and dipping a bunch of strawberries was the last thing I wanted to do. So I washed up a bunch cut the tops off, then took out the core with a veggie peeler …. and tossed a few mini chocolate chips in the middle. Put them on a plate and said “There you go”. Well of course my kids looked at me like I was nuts.
I then said, “Who said the chocolate had to be on the outside, lets face it this is SO much easier”. The kids laughed and filled their tummies with strawberries and chocolate.
Less mess, less fuss, and way less time but taste just as good. These are a winner in my book 🙂 Plus they are perfect for when you just want one as a quick treat. My kids made them the next day as an after school snack, plus we used it as a counting tool to help my preschooler practice counting, we counted out how many chips we could fit into each strawberry.
