- Dairy Free - Use your favorite dairy free chocolate to make this a dairy free and vegan treat.

Store in the refrigerator loosely covered with plastic wrap for 2-3 days. The chocolate may start to have condensation on the outside over time. This is normal.
These do not freeze well and the texture of the strawberry will change.
Make sure to let the chocolate harden before adding the face. It will be very difficult to make if the chocolate is still soft.
This is a great activity to make with your kids or small children. They will love decorating spooky faces on strawberries.
