Chocolate Covered Strawberries Two Ways

I dare you to find a kid who doesn’t like a little twist in presentation.  And lollipops?  We all know how kids feel about those.  Here are two versions of chocolate covered strawberries to win over your kids.


  • large strawberries
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 3 tsp oil (I prefer refined coconut oil)

Strawberry Lollipops

  • sturdy straws (link above for the ones I used)
  • Ribbon
  • sprinkles

Strawberry Smores

  • ½  cup marshmallows
  • 2 sheets crushed graham crackers (I like original flavor)

1. Clean and dry strawberries very well.
2. In bowl, melt chocolate and oil, 30 seconds at a time, stirring at each interval.
3. For LOLLIPOPS: Hull strawberries and put a straw through the center.  Dip in chocolate and let excess drip off. Decorate with sprinkles.
4. For SMORES: Melt marshmallows in an oversized bowl for about 15-25 seconds.  They will puff up. Stir until melted. Dip strawberries in marshmallow, then cool stemside down.  Dip in chocolate and sprinkle on graham crackers.
