With Easter around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about recipes that are easy to put together but look pretty sitting on the Easter brunch table! While Chris and I are not religious, we celebrate Easter as a holiday centered around spending time with our families – isn’t that what every holiday boils down to? My friend Kacey created this Chocolate-Dipped Berries Easter Carrot Treats Recipe that is just perfect for entertaining around the Easter holiday – or any Spring-themed family get together!

I have been hosting our family’s Annual Easter Egg Hunt for a few years now, and while we usually have Easter dinner (we do a 1 or 2 PM meal) at my parent’s house or my cousin’s house, everyone comes back to my house afterwards to find the 100 or 200 candy-filled Easter Eggs I’ve hidden around the yard. I like serving treats for the adults while the kids run around grabbing their candy-filled eggs – that way, everyone gets goodies! These Easter Carrot Treats are going to be perfect for serving alongside my Easter Muddy Buddies Mix this year!

Chocolate-Dipped Berries Easter Carrot Treats Recipe

Ingredients
1 package fresh, ripe strawberries (select berries with bit leafy greens at the top)
12 ounces white chocolate dyed orange or candy orange melting wafers
1 box chocolate cake mix

Directions
Hand wash and thoroughly dry each strawberry, including the green tops.  I used a piece of twine to carefully tie up the green tops of the berries.

This helped in two ways: it kept the leaves out of the chocolate when dipping and it ‘trained’ the leaves to stick up a bit more so they would resemble carrot greens.  Be careful not to pull too tightly or rip the greens.

Line a large tray or baking sheet with parchment paper.  Follow the package instructions for melting the chocolate, if needed, add the orange dye at this time.  Dip each strawberry into the chocolate all the way up to the tip of the greens.  Place on the tray to let the chocolate harden, this will happen rather quickly.

Fill a small cup for each strawberry with the powdered cake mix, you’ll want them to be ¾ of the way full so there is still enough room for the berries.

Place the carrot berries into the cups at slightly different angles to give a more playful look to them.

These Chocolate-Dipped Berries Easter Carrot Treats are best when eaten on the same day they are made!

      It’s really just for effect, consider it a garnish…though I would probably recommend licking your finger, dipping it into the cake mix, and licking it off. LOL!
