Carrot Themed Chocolate Strawberries

First, grab a helper, even if it’s for them to eat the fallen Oreos onto the floor 😉

First start with lining a baking pan with parchment paper

Melt vanilla chocolate wafers in microwave or according to the package(These can be bought at Hobby Lobby, Michael’s or sometimes in the produce section of any grocery store).

Add 2 yellow food coloring drops to every 1 red food coloring drops, do this until you get a deep orange color.

Rinse the strawberries

Make sure to completely dry them in paper towels, the chocolate won’t stick too well if they are wet.

Dip them in the chocolate, I recommend sticking a fork through the top side of the strawberry to more easily lift them out of the chocolate(Note: if chocolate gets too stiff add olive oil to thin it out, DO NOT REHEAT).

Place on parchment paper, wait until the chocolate has completely set.

Add crushed Oreos (no filling) to the bottom of the cup(I used about 2 cookies for the bottom).

You can make your own pudding, or just buy snack packs (which is what I did) and add until it’s 3/4 of the way to the top.

Add more Oreos (about 3 cookies) on top of the pudding, and then place the strawberry in the middle of the Oreos.

To make the strawberries look even more like carrots take a black gel decorator tube and squiggle lines across the strawberry (this worked better when the strawberry was still on the parchment paper).

Tada! Doesn’t that look delicious??

If you don’t have enough cups, pudding or Oreos that doesn’t matter, they look adorable without the cup too 😉
