There is nothing better than fresh strawberries. They are not only sweet and delicious, but also loaded with vitamin C, which helps keep our immune systems strong and healthy. Strawberries are a great snack by themselves, or you can add a dose of antioxidants by making chocolate ladybugs. We use semi-sweet dark chocolate chips to create the spots on our ladybugs that kids and parents go wild about! In just minutes you have a sweet, healthy treat that everyone loves.


5 fresh, large whole strawberries
30 semi-sweet dark chocolate chips


  1. Cut the tops off of the strawberries and cut them in half lengthwise.
  2. With your fingers, gently push three chocolate chips into each half to create the ladybug's spots.
  3. Serve on a fun platter.
