Chocolate Covered Rainbow Strawberries



Chocolate Covered Rainbow Strawberries are a fantastic treat to have this St. Patrick’s Day. With colorful layers of white chocolate inspired from the rainbow. Trust me the rainbow has never tasted so good.


Hey friends, welcome back to Foodie Friday!
Where every 2nd Friday of the month I, Sandra from A Dash of Sanity, will be sharing one of my favorite recipes with the friends and followers of Love Bakes Good Cakes.

I am gearing up for St. Patrick’s Day and one of the treats that we made this year were these adorable Chocolate Covered Rainbow Strawberries. My kids were excited, claiming they could have more than one since it was a “healthy treat”. Right?! Umm, no. With 6 layers of chocolate, I would say this is more a chocolate dessert than a fresh fruit snack. None the less, it is the perfect festive treat and one could say the “pot of gold” would be the strawberry center.

I love making fun recipes for the spring time, especially for the holidays like St. Patrick’s Day and Easter. I have to say that Easter is my favorite holiday to make goodies for. All of the colors are warm and inviting, the flavors fruity and sweet, then of course the salads…oh, my favorite part.

Celebrate the Irish luck with these Chocolate Covered Rainbow Strawberries, trust me they are better than a 4-leaf clover.
Enjoy!
