Strawberry Ladybugs Ingredients
- 1 Pint Fresh Strawberries
- Wilton Milk Chocolate Candy Discs
- 1-2 pieces Black Licorice Rope
- Edible Eyes
Making Strawberry Ladybugs
Cut the stems off the strawberries and cut a small sliver off the bottom side of each berry so they will lay flat.
Melt chocolate per package directions. Dip each berry into the chocolate coating about a third of each one. Place 2 edible eyes on each dipped berry and let harden for about 5 minutes.
Then, lace the rest of the melted chocolate into a small plastic baggie and pipe a line down the middle and little dots all over the top to resemble a ladybug. While this chocolate hardens, cut tiny ½ inch pieces of licorice.
Finally, poke two pieces of licorice into each berry, one above each eye to resemble antennae.
That's all there is to it. I hope that you enjoy these super cute chocolate covered strawberry ladybugs at your next summer party!
