Chocolate Ladybugs

Chocolate Ladybugs

There is nothing better than freshly picked strawberries, so when they’re in season, bring some home. They are not only sweet and delicious, but also loaded with immune-boosting vitamin C. Strawberries make a great snack on their own, or you can add a dose of antioxidants by making Chocolate Ladybugs, a low-fat treat that takes just minutes to create. We use semisweet chocolate chips to create the spots on our "bugs."
