Chocolate Strawberry Birds

By: Bella Bucchiotti
This easy 4-ingredient recipe makes the most adorable chocolate strawberry birds. They really are super-sweet, both to look at and to eat!
Prep Time: 35 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
Total Time: 43 minutes
Servings: 20

Ingredients 

  • 1 Quart strawberries, fresh, approximately 15 to 20
  • 4 Ounces chocolate, semi-sweet or milk, chopped
  • 40 candy eyeballs, 2 per strawberry
  • 40 sprinkles, round orange, 2 per strawberry

Instructions 

  • Wash and completely dry the strawberries with paper towels. The chocolate won’t stick to a damp berry.
  • Put the chopped chocolate in a small, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave the chocolate in 30 sec intervals at 50% power until melted and smooth. Stir between each interval. It should take 5 to 6 minutes.
  • Place a strawberry at the end of the skewer. This just helps keep the chocolate off your fingers. Dip the strawberry into the chocolate, leaving a triangle exposed (for the belly of the penguin). Allow the excess to drip off before pressing 2 of the candy eyeballs into the chocolate above the exposed part of the strawberry. Immediately press two of the round sprinkles into the chocolate just below the eyes. Press them in upright to give you a beak.
  • Place the skewers in an upright position until the chocolate sets, about 20 to 30 minutes. I use a large piece of floral foam for the skewers but an empty jar or tall cup will work as well.
