Brighten the kitchen table with these beautiful and easy to make Chocolate Covered Strawberries. These chocolate covered strawberries are dipped in spring colors and decorated with fun spring colored stripes. They say Hello Spring! Come on in and I’ll share the “how to” on this fun and Colorful Chocolate Covered Strawberries Recipe.
Don’t they just make you smile?
They’re not too fancy, which I love. I made the stripes a little more whimsical to give them a fun flare.
I almost named them Graffiti Chocolate Covered Strawberries. That’s what they kind of remind me of.
They are so much fun. I love the bright colors. You could almost leave them plain like the photo on top. I like that too.
But, the fun stripes give them that added touch of love.
Of course, you could always stick to one contrasting color. I love this look, as well.
