Yeah, that's what I said.
Now, Dear Internets, let me tell you a story.
You see, I thought I'd invented these! I was standing at the kitchen counter washing berries while contemplating if I was smarts enough to come up with a new Easter post, when WHAMO, idea.
I don't know if you know this, but strawberries have the little green leafies at the top. (That's the scientific name, look it up). Carrots? Well, by golly gosh darn, THEY have the little leafies at the top.
Hmmmmmm.... If I had some orange tinted chocolate, I'd be in bizzznezz.
Guess what! I did. Well, I had white chocolate and candy coloring, but folks, semantics.
I set to work, thinking, alas, my readers will think I'm SO clever!
They will oooooh and ahhhhhh.. and they will reply and email me, and share my blog, and Pin my things to Pinterest!
And my life will be changed....
By Carrot Berries!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok, maybe I didn't think all that. Or maybe I did. You'll never know.
So, I berried away.
They are cute, yes. I am proud.
After finishing, I sit down to post, and think... I should consult the Google Machine.
Google says to me, "Bahahahaha... Tina, you LOSE! Someone smarter than you, prettier than you, skinnier than you, and all together better than you has already made these".
Google, I thought you were my friend, why are you so mean?
I found them in a few places, not many, but a few, this was the first Google return.
After I wiped my tears, I pulled up my big girl panties and soldiered on.
I realized, mine have sprinkles. Sprinkles always make things better, right?
So here we go.
These are very, very easy.
Make some up and stand back and wait for applause.
What, am I the only one that does that??
You can also have fun with just the white chocolate and sprinkles.
After all, isn't Easter the perfect time to dye berries?
Package some of these babies up. Who wouldn't want this treat in their Easter Basket?
(sorry, I'm lame like that)
Carrot Berries for Easter
Strawberries, washed and totally dry
Orange Candy Melts Or White Chocolate* tinted with Candy Coloring**
I use white chocolate almond bark (found in most groceries)
**this must be specific for candy, like this from Wilton, regular food coloring will ruin the chocolate.
Melt your chocolate in 30 second intervals. You may need to use a bit of oil or shortening to thin.
Dip your dried berries all the way up to the stem, add the sprinkles immediately, the chocolate will dry quickly.
Allow to fully dry.
