Are you ready? Let’s get to it!

  • First off, rinse and dry your strawberries. Just dry them off with a paper towel
  • Then, cut the leaves off with a straight cut
  • Now, cut a V out of the straight end you just cut
  • You should have a cute little heart strawberry!
  • You could just stop there, because the heart strawberries are pretty cute by themselves…but then you’d miss all of the cuteness of the love bugs!
  • So, grab your wax paper and cut a piece off for your strawberries to sit on
  • Pour about 4 oz. of chocolate melts into a small microwaveable proof bowl. Pop it into the microwave for 1 minute, stir and (if needed) microwave it for 30 more seconds, stir until smooth
  • The chocolate sets up really fast, so You’ll want to do this one at a time:
  • Dip the tips of the strawberries into the chocolate
  • I don’t know why I decided to sit them on the cut end, but I just went with that. You can set them down flat. Whatever floats your boat
  • Before the chocolate dries, add 2 dehydrated marshmallows for the eyes
  • Repeat with all of your strawberries
  • Use the flat end of the toothpick to dip into the melted chocolate

  • With your chocolate covered toothpick, add little black dots to the marshmallow eyes and to the body of the ladybug strawberry. 🙂

  1. My daughters got super excited from the moment I showed them your post! I did the prep for the strawberries and my daughters added the chocolate and the marshmallows. We had a great time making these delicious Heart-shaped Ladybugs. Of course, some of the ladybugs didn’t make it to the fridge because they were just too yummy!

    • Oh my goodness! That is so much fun. I’m so glad you came back to tell me about the success you had with these and the fun you had with your daughters. It made my day!
