Chocolate Mousse Cupcakes with Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

Remember those chocolate mousse cupcakes I made recently? Remember how I said I’d be making them again? Well here they are again. This time they’re all dressed up for the holidays. I saw these festive strawberries on The Rookie Chef blog last 4th of July and I immediately starred the recipe and put it in my Holiday folder so I’d remember to make them this year.


I got so many compliments on the strawberries and they were so easy to make. I really like the dark blue candy melts that I found for the Colts cupcakes I made for the Superbowl this year. It’s much closer to the classic red-white-blue than the normal aqua color of the Wilton candy melts. (For anyone who’s wondering, I found the dark blue candy melts at an ACMoore).


Half of my cupcakes got red white and blue star sprinkles and the other half were topped with the red white and blue strawberries. Next year, I’ll also make a bunch of the strawberries for people to enjoy without the cupcakes as well.

Red White and Blue Dipped Strawberries

Ingredients:

Strawberries, washed and dried
Almond bark or white candy melts
Blue candy melts or blue gel food coloring to mix with the white

Directions:

Wash strawberries and dry on paper towels

Melt almond bark. You can do this in the microwave like I did by just putting it in a bowl, microwaving for 30 seconds, stirring, and then continuing to microwave for 15 second intervals. Make sure and stir between intervals. Or you can do this on a low heat stove top. Just be careful not to burn it!

Dip your strawberries in the almond bark so that it covers about 2/3 of the strawberry. Repeat for all strawberries. Set them on wax paper and allow for them to completely cool.

While your strawberries are cooling, melt your blue candy melts or add your blue coloring to the rest of the almond bark.

Once cooled, dip your strawberries into the blue candy melts but only to the bottom third. Again, transfer to wax paper and allow them to cool.

    I love cookie exchanges too! I actually participated in Steph’s exchange too 🙂 These cookies sound delicious and if they’re vegan they’re supposed to be healthy right??

    How many cookies does this make in one batch?
