We like to spice up our spread on Easter with a few fun themed foods. These fun strawberries are easy to make and get the kids to eat some fruit before emptying their Easter basket. They also make a fun surprise as your addition to any pot luck.

INGREDIENTS
1 lb Strawberries
8 oz Orange Candy Melting Chips
Orange Sparkling Sugar (optional)

DIRECTIONS
Gently fluff stems upward on strawberries.
Place strawberries in freezer for 10-15 minutes.
Melt chocolate by microwaving for 30 seconds, stirring and repeating until melted and smooth.
Get a piece of wax or parchment paper large enough to hold all strawberries.
Use a spoon to spread chocolate near the stem around the top.
Holding by the stem either dip or spoon chocolate over the berry.
Optionally you can sprinkle with sparkling sugar.
Place on paper.
By chilling in the freezer, the chocolate will set up immediately.
