Simple, healthy, and super creative snack idea for you and your family. Serve them at your next party or gathering and enjoy delicious strawberries.
What you need for your Strawberry Ladybugs:
- Mini chocolate chips
- Blueberries or small grapes
- Toothpicks (optional-not recommended if served to small kids)
- Lettuce (for decoration)
First, wash the strawberries really well and remove the stem and leaves.
A great tip for removing the stem and leaves is to use a straw. Insert a straw at the bottom of the strawberries and push all the way. The stem and leaves will come right off. It really works! I was amazed the first time I tried this.
I now use a straw all the time when I am serving strawberries. Not only is it easy but won’t waste a lot of the fruit.
Now start making you adorable strawberry ladybugs. Cut the strawberries in half length wise and start making your strawberry ladybugs. You can use a blueberry or small grape for the heads.
Then, push in upside down mini chocolate chips for spots. To hold it all together, you can also insert a toothpick. Just be careful to remove them if toddlers are going to eat the Strawberry Ladybugs.
You can serve over greens for decoration, or just a fun tray.
