SUMMER STRAWBERRIES // choccie treats your kids will love to make (and eat)

Simple chocolate strawberries big sis

It was a gorgeous summer’s day, so I decided to make the girls a little treat.

I wanted Big Sis to be involved, so thought chocolate strawberries would be the perfect simple toddler recipe. I dug out a silicon mini-cupcake tray and got Big Sis to carefully drop a lovely, juicy berry in each hole.

I gently melted some cooking chocolate (you can do it in the microwave, but I prefer to do it ‘old-style’ using a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water) and helped Big Sis to pour the mixture into each mould until each berry was swimming in its own puddle of chocolate.

While the girls licked the bowl (the best part, right?!) I placed the strawberries in the fridge to allow the chocolate to set. Next, we eased the coated berries out of the mould and plated them up, ready for eating.

These took just 10 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to set, and the end result was absolutely delicious; I tried some – for quality control purposes – and the juicy, slightly tangy flesh of the strawberries just went so perfectly with the creamy milk chocolate.

I think it’s safe to say they were a big hit with the girls too…
