Sure, it’s inconvenient to sip your juice by the thimbleful — but for your average would-be fairy, it’s all part of the fun. Take the opportunity to use all your little tea sets for a fairy-themed birthday party. Along with tiny cups of colorful juice, serve these berries dipped in pink chocolate. For a fancy look, garnish the berries with mint leaves.
- Large strawberries with stems
- White chocolate (such as Nestle Premier White Morsels or Wilton White Candy Melts; 1 cup of pieces will coat about 12 strawberries)
- Red food coloring
- Decorating sugar (sprinkles also work well)
Rinse the berries, then pat them dry with paper towels.
Place the white chocolate in a bowl and melt it in the microwave according to the package instructions. Stir in red food coloring until the chocolate is tinted pink (we used 5 drops for 1 cup of chocolate).
Pour the sugar onto a plate. Holding each berry by the stem, dunk it into the chocolate, then roll it immediately in the sugar. Place the berries on a sheet of waxed paper and let the coating harden.
