Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Chocolate covered strawberries are my go-to dessert for a super simple, delicious, and somewhat healthy treat! I love making these sweet snacks because there’s so much flexibility; you can be creative by using different chocolates, designs, and toppings! Have fun decorating!

Recipe: Melt chocolate of choice (I use chocolate chips, but anything would work) in a heatproof bowl. Thickly spread chocolate onto strawberries. Place chocolate covered strawberries in fridge to harden slightly (about 5 min). Melt second chocolate of choice and scoop into pastry bag. Take out chilled strawberries and decorate them as desired.

***NOTE: Try chocolate-dipping all of your favorite fruits! Also try making chocolate covered graham crackers, cookies, marshmallows, or any other fun treats!

Strawberry Shortcakes (Guilt-Free!)

While waiting for the cookies in the Celebration Whoopie Pies to cool, I concocted my very own inventive experiment: mini strawberry shortcakes! I’ve never actually tried a real strawberry shortcake before, but here’s me being a scientist; simply take two cookies, scoop on a heaping spoon of cool whip, add some sliced fresh strawberries and oila! A super easy and delicious guilt-free snack!
