I can’t believe Halloween is upon us again. When i think back to last year, man did we have a lot going on, and only a baby… and now… well now Hazel is one and we’re planning on taking her out Trick or Treating as well. To be honest, I love halloween. I love watching pretend scary movies (hello Hocus Pocus), dressing up, carving pumpkins and going out door to door. I am not so much a fan of the actual scary movies (no thank you Jason), but Clint is, so the television is all his tonight to watch something terrifying.
I also love getting into the spirit. It’s just so much fun! I can’t wait to help get the girls ready. Have you guys started picking out costumes? Hazel we decided on being a Flamingo, and the girls are still undecided although I did hear that they would like to be vampires again like they were last year… so maybe?
Plus with Halloween comes candy… but not just after the trick or treating… not in our house! We celebrate all month long with special treats… and the trick to mine is that it’s only half treat… and mostly fruit! So I would say it’s a win-win… right? I decided on teaching How to Make Spooky Strawberries since they are delicious and easy. SO easy in fact the kids can participate and get in the fun. Nothing says celebrate like coming together and creating an amazing dish. But I’m not just stopping there! NO, my #FoodieMamas are back this month with some GREAT halloween inspired recipes that will have you asking for more treats… and not so many tricks!
The beauty is that you can make as many or as little as you want. For this I used:
- 4oz of white chocolate
- 10 strawberries, medium sized
- mini chocolate chips.
- Melt chocolate in microwave. I added it all to a bowl, heated for 15 seconds and stirred. I continued that process until the chocolate was warm.
- Dip strawberry into chocolate.
- Add mini chocolate chips as eyes and mouth for ghost.
- Let cool in the fridge before serving.
I will say this: do not melt your chocolate with milk. When I was trying this out, I originally thinned it out with milk and that meant I had to double dip them. They didn’t look as good as when I just melted the chocolate to dip them.
An easy way to pass a saturday afternoon or after school… and perfect as a snack. These spooky strawberries were ridiculously fun to create… and even better to devour!
