A favorite at any time of the year, dipped in white or milk chocolate, these strawberries are a sweet treat that will delight kids.

How to make:

3. Put enough chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl to cover the strawberries, then microwave it for about 1 minute or until it is completely melted.

5. Let the cookies harden for about 15 minutes.

6. Using a cookie cutter, punch out the center of each cookie, creating a hole (these are great to have around for other baking projects).
