Kids Party Food Idea: Stawberry Rose Buds

We all struggle with coming up with creative ways to entertain our kids for our Kids Birthday Parties! This birthday party strawberry rose buds are too cute not to incorporate into your children’s birthday celebrations. They can be presented as a bunch of roses in the middle of the food table and are just delicious! You have a choice of using white, dark or milk chocolate topping for variety.

What you’ll need

  • Strawberries
  • 1 cup white candy melts or white chocolate chips
  • Microwavable mug
  • Mint leaves (optional)
  • Thin wooden kitchen skewers

  1. Wash the strawberries and pat them dry. If the berry leaves look fresh, leave them in place. Otherwise, remove them.
  2. Measure the candy melts into the microwave mug and melt them in the microwave according to the package directions. Stir the melted candy until smooth.
  3. Working with one strawberry at a time, insert a wooden skewer up through the bottom. (Note: If you’ve removed the berry leaves, you can place a couple of mint leaves up against the bottom of the berry before inserting the skewer.) Then dip the berry into the melted candy, leaving a thin border uncoated just above the stem.
  4. Arrange the skewered strawberries in a glass, not touching, and wait a few minutes for the candy to set up before serving. Makes 12 to 15 rosebuds.
