Dip each strawberry into the white chocolate, leaving the stem uncovered.
Place on a sheet pan.
Add mini chocolate chips for the eyes and chocolate morsels for the mouth.

Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm.
You can change up the chocolate chips to change up the flavor and look! Have fun creating new flavors.
