Here’s a fun dessert idea that combines chocolate and strawberries into delicious Chocolate Strawberry Ladybugs. These easy to make little treats will be the hit at any event or gathering!
I love fun themed dessert ideas. I love them more when they’re easy to make. There are fewer things that are cuter than a ladybug dessert and well this dessert is a trifecta because it incorporates 3 of my favorite things, Chocolate, Strawberries & Ladybugs.
The best part is that it’s so easy to make with minimal ingredients and most important minimal work. However, the product is a gorgeous ladybug that is out of this world adorable! I can’t believe how cute it is and how delicious it is to eat (although you might not want to because of how perfect they look) These are perfect for a summer gathering, spring fling or just because!
Use them for a birthday party or even a picnic. The sky is the limit! Best of all you won’t break a sweat making them!
What you’ll Need:
- 1 Pint Fresh Strawberries
- Wilton Milk Chocolate Candy Discs
- 1-2 pieces Black Licorice Rope
- Edible Eyes
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.
Place 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.
Poke two of these into each berry, one above each eye to resemble antennae’s.
Fun for summer parties!
Aren’t they perfect?
