For years, I’ve served cho­co­late-cov­ered straw­ber­ries for my kids’ birthday par­ties, but they’re ex­pen­sive, so even­tu­ally I de­cided to make them my­self. Then my friends started ask­ing me to make them for their events, and I re­al­ized sell­ing them could be a great side busi­ness, es­pe­cially dur­ing the hol­i­days, when peo­ple are look­ing for af­ford­able gift ideas. “To get started, I cre­ated a logo my­self and made busi­ness cards, then pur­chased a few molds, boxes and tis­sue pa­per and started mak­ing straw­ber­ries dipped in cho­co­late and topped with ed­i­ble glit­ter or in­fused with liquor. I also make cho­co­late-dipped pret­zels and ap­ples, cho­co­late bou­quets and lol­lipops. At Christ­mas, peo­ple place or­ders for par­ties or to give as gifts. Most peo­ple find me via word-of-mouth, but I also pro­mote my busi­ness on Face­book. All my cus­tomers are lo­cal, so I de­liver the treats to them. “My prices vary from $ 20 for a dozen cho­co­late-cov­ered straw­ber­ries to $120 for a more elab­o­rate ar­range­ment. Dur­ing the hol­i­days, I earn about $500. “I love mak­ing cho­co­late treats be­cause it gives me a cre­ative out­let, and the money I earn is used for fun things like va­ca­tions or to buy some­thing for our house—like a gazebo for the back­yard.”
