Fairy Berries
What's your Take?

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. Having the opportunity to use all our little tea sets (as well as a few borrowed from friends) for our fairy-themed birthday party was irresistible to my girls. Along with tiny cups of colorful juice, we served these berries dipped in pink chocolate and glittery cookie wands. For a fancy look, we garnished the berries with mint leaves.

What you'll need

  • 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)

How to make it

  1. Rinse the berries, then pat them dry with paper towels.

  2. 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).

  3. 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.
