This is an awesome dessert to make this Thanksgiving! These DIY chocolate dipped strawberries look exactly like acorns. Find smaller strawberries to make it look more authentic, unfortunately, our market only had humongous ones available.
You will need:
- Melting Chocolate Wafers
- Chocolate Sprinkles
- Wax Paper
Remove the strawberry leaves/stems. To make it easier for little hands, Ollie skewered the strawberries before dipping. (If you are older, you can hold the strawberries and dip 80% of the strawberry, let it set, then dip the “cap”.)
Melt the chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 5-10 seconds to be sure not to overheat it. Dip the strawberries into the chocolate. Let the chocolate drip off so you have a thin coating.
Wait about a minute for it to slightly set and then dip the top of the strawberries into the chocolate sprinkles to make the “cap”. Set it down on the wax paper and let it set.
That’s it! Now you have some cool and yummy chocolate covered strawberries that look exactly like acorns!
