Easter-y Springtime-y Treats: Chocolate Covered Strawberries


So Easter is a big deal for some families. And to be totally honest, as much as I love to cook – this year I just really want a long weekend.

I know.

I don’t want to make a big dinner, I don’t want a fuss, I don’t want to entertain, and I definitely DON’T want to be decorating things with bunnies and flowers.

But Global wanted me back and needed some sweet Easter themed snacks. I thought and thought, and failed at many things I saw on Pinterest.


Then I thought of these strawberries. EVERYONE loves chocolate covered strawberries. Plus – buying the orange chocolate wafers gave me an excuse to go to Bulk Barn and buy a bunch of candy while ostensibly looking for orange wafers.


These take 10 minutes, are easy as pie, and will impress everyone if they can figure out that they’re supposed to look like carrots.

ingredients: 
1.5 cup of orange molding wafers (available at stores which sell candy making supplies or baking confectionaries – such as Bulk Barn)
1 case of strawberries


other things you will need:
a double-boiler/jury-rigged double boiler consisting of a pot of simmering water and a metal or glass bowl which can sit on the pot rim without touching the water. 
a wooden spoon or spatula
a greased baking tray/tray lined with parchment paper



  1. Over a double-boiler, melt wafers stirring slowly. Ensure that no steam or water comes into contact with the melting chocolate as this will lead to it curdling and turning into a gummy mess.
  2. Once chocolate has melted, remove double boiler from the heat, and place next to a greased cookie sheet on a heat resistant surface.
  3. Grasp a strawberry by the stem and slowly coat it in the melted chocolate, ensuring you cover as much of that little guy as possible. Place coated strawberry on sheet and repeated until chocolate or strawberries run out.
  4. Chill in the fridge, lightly covered with saran wrap until ready to eat!
