One of the latest tips to take the internet by storm is a simple melted chocolate hack, allowing children to enjoy treats like strawberries dipped in chocolate from the comfort of a picnic blanket.

In a video shared by TikTok user, Rosa Isabel, a chocolate bar is opened from its package and let to rest beneath the sun. After 5 to 10 minutes, the confectionary has been melted down into a deliciously sweet dip. The best part is, the gooey goodness doesn't even need to be transferred onto a plate, because it's already served on the bar's paper. To demonstrate just how effective the hack is, Isabel slides a strawberry onto the melted chocolate to create the perfect summertime treat.
