We finally got a few days of warm weather here in Utah and it felt like spring! Easter is coming quickly and these cute dipped strawberries will be so fun for your Easter celebration. It’s a fun twist on decorating eggs…you decorate your own strawberry! You can’t mess up these berries, any design or squiggle with the icing looks artistic. Enjoy making this edible holiday project with your family. We know you will enjoy eating them! Happy Easter!
1 cup icing, divided (I used Cake Mate Writing Icing in 4 classic colors)
Wash and dry each of the berries and remove any green stem or leaves. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave until mostly melted. Then stir in the vegetable oil until well blended and smooth. Dip each strawberry top first into the melted chocolate covering 2/3 of the berry. I used my fingers, but you could also spear it with a fork and dip it in that way. Lay them on the parchment paper. Dip all of the strawberries and put them in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes until the chocolate hardens. Then pull them out and let the decorating begin.
You could also make buttercream frosting and color it. Divide it into bowls and color each bowl of frosting a different color. Then put each color into a sandwich baggy and snip the corner just barely for a small hole. Use that as a decorating bag. The kids will really enjoy making these fun Easter Egg Strawberries!
