Kids in the Kitchen - Strawberries

Here in Central Florida *where we live* once it hits March it is officially strawberry season. Infact the Strawberry festival is in March ... that is one of my favorite times of the year. I always say I go to look at the crafts and let Lu ride the rides, but really I think I go for the ever popular yummy fresh strawberry shortcake, and of course the ripe delishous flats of Strawberries, and it is so worth the drive for those kinds of Strawberries =)
So today we did something simple, something I recently saw in an issue of Family Fun Magazine
We simply made white chocolate dipped strawberries with sprinkles!
First Lu rinsed them *one by one I might add* then patted them dry.
She dipped them in the already melted chocolate and sprinkled them with red sprinkles.
Not the prettiest picture here but you get it, they were yummy goodness! We love strawberries in this house! I think we might attack some grapes next with chocolate :)!
What kinds of food fairs and festivals do you all have in your states that you love going too??
Don't forget to link up!


  1. Oh how I LOVE strawberries! Our strawberry season in Tennessee won't be in until about May/early June. Every couple of years, we buy a tone of berries and make homemade strawberry jam.

    (Oh, and I will be back to cooking with my kiddos this Friday and hope to get you a link up then!)

  2. Like Wonder Mom, I'm in TN and we have a Strawberry Festival around May/June. There is also a Cornbread Festival in the fall. (I'll be posting kitchen doings when RockerTot naps.)

  3. we have burgoo fest, sweet corn, apple fest for just a couple here in southern illinois

  4. YUM! Are you going to the strawberry festival this year? It started today I think...

  5. I am in CF, too! I've never been to the Strawberry Festival, though. We tried to go picking here in O-town, but there weren't any to pick because of the freeze.

  6. We are going to the Strawberry Festival this weekend!!

  7. We are going to the festival next weekend!
