If you’ve been following JHE for any amount of time. You know that the cute seasonal treats are not my thing. I’d love to be able to have a mind that thinks of those things. But I just don’t. My mind works with ingredients, not with creating some outrageously cool piece of artwork made out of food.

To those people, ahem Beth from The First Year Blog I truly give you credit and tip my hat to you. It takes some true talent, to think of those things, make them and then beautifully photograph them.

These Chocolate Covered Strawberries are my attempt at trying to be seasonal, cute and fun. Luckily, I had a super cute helper to add to the cuteness factor.

Does it work?

I think it does.

I had planned on making these chocolate covered strawberries during the day so Cason would be surprised. But I ran out of time before I had to pick him up from school. So I asked if he wanted to help mommy make some strawberry ghosts and course the answer was yes.

He ran into my office grabbed his stool, pulled it up to the counter and was ready to go in minutes.

I still think more chocolate ended up in his mouth than on the strawberries. But I was ok with that. Having him home helping me in the kitchen brought back memories of life before school. He was always in the kitchen mixing stuff up with me. Honestly, he loves being in there just as much as I love having him. 🙂

These Chocolate Covered Strawberry Ghosts only require 3 ingredients and as you can see, are easy enough your kiddos can make them!

They are perfect for a class treat because they are a slightly healthier option than most of the stuff out there. Especially around Halloween! But more importantly, you’re kids will love making them and then devouring them.

Cason couldn’t wait to bring them over to our friends house to share with all the kids. He was so proud!
