Have we mentioned how much we love strawberry season? Those juicy red gems are healthy, versatile and most importantly, delicious. While you’ll find plenty of berries in your local grocery store or farmers market right now, why not take an afternoon trip to a nearby pick-your-own farm and let your kids see just where those berries come from? That’s what Catherine McCord, the foodie mom behind the website Weelicious, did with her son Kenya on a recent trip to Kentucky.
With a pile of fresh berries in her kitchen, Catherine came up with a new take on the classic strawberries and cream dessert. Her stuffed strawberry “elves” make a great afternoon treat for little ones and adults alike. Plus, the addition of chocolate chip “eyes” boosts the fun factor, which is a bonus if you’re dealing with a picky eater.
What you’ll need:
• Whipped cream cheese
• Strawberry preserves
• Mini chocolate chips
You’ll find the full recipe for these adorable fruit snacks over on the Weelicious website. If you’re feeling a little adventurous, switch up your filling with different types of preserves to create new flavours.
