Easter Egg Chocolate Covered Strawberries Recipe using three ingredients – a fun festive dessert to make with your kids for Easter!

This weekend was a little rough. I started Cason’s “potty party” aka our celebration for potty training day on Friday and he did great! Actually fantastic. No accidents. He was telling me when he had to go, we had a blast and ate Oreos galore. {he needed to give me a cookie when I went tee tee too :)}

Then came the “after party”, not so fun. For the after party we ventured out past the bathroom and for the most part he did really well but there were definitely alot more accidents and WE had to be proactive about asking him whether he had to go. Whereas before he was telling us.

I had a friend text me Sunday morning to see how I was doing. And to be honest, I just felt discouraged and irritated, partly because potty training is exhausting and I had barely gotten any sleep the night before. She told me that potty training is a process, this is new to him, and he’s still figuring out the “sensation.” Then she told me to remember to release control to the Lord.

Why is it that when we are trying to teach our children we end up being taught in the process?

Potty Training is just another way that we are trying to teach kids to be independent, but in order to do that we need to release control. If I don’t release control and let him take the lead to tell me when he needs to go then he will always depend on me for that. And if I don’t let him fail then he will never know what it feels like to succeed.

Ugh.. parenting. So so SOOOOO hard!

Even though its crazy hard, what I love about parenting is that those hard times are always following by sweet memories.

Like for instances when Cason and I made this Egg Easter Colored Chocolate Covered Strawberries Recipe! It was a blast and a great way to change up those regular easter egg crafts – PLUS you get to eat it when you’re finished!

When I told him that we were going to make Chocolate Covered Strawberries he couldn’t wait to start. The anticipation was growing as he was helping me set up our “lineup” to dunk the strawberries and place them on a baking sheet. As we were melting the chocolate he pulled his stool right up to the counter, spoon in hand, ready to stir the chocolate the moment it came out of the microwave. When the chocolate was finally ready we separated it into four bowls and added our food coloring.

This was Cason’s favorite part. He loved telling me which color to use next or if I needed to add more “drops” to make it the color he was looking for. And then watching him stir it as the chocolate started to change from white to blue or red was a blast. He got so excited!

The strawberries may be a little imperfect, they may not be completely covered, green stems may fall off and get stuck in the chocolate, colors may get mixed because they change their mind on the color they want last minute- but the imperfection is what makes them fun! It creates memories that you and your child will never forget.

Plus its a fun story to tell to whoever eats these Chocolate Covered Strawberries!

I hope that this week you take some time out to have fun and make memories with your family and make these Easter Egg Chocolate Covered Strawberries! Its a fun activity to do and they delicious to eat! 🙂

  1. What a lovely idea for Easter or a springtime party. They are so pretty! Hang in there with the potty training. It’s not easy but the hardest part is in the beginning. I’m sure your son will understand soon and just remember that all kids become potty trained eventually 🙂

    1. ugh… boys!! I totally got sprayed the other day … right after I got out of the shower. Clean and then instantly not clean!

      Hope you get a chance to make them!

    Great idea. Making these for Easter for sure. One of my kiddos is allergic to eggs so I’ve been looking for something special to do for Easter instead of coloring eggs. Thanks!
