Strawberry Ghosts

Makes 1 lb. strawberries


1 lb. strawberries

1 package white candy melts, or 12 oz. white chocolate chips

Candy eyes

1/2 cup chocolate chips


Clean and dry strawberries, leaving stems. In a liquid measuring cup, melt the white candy melts or white chips in microwave, one minute at a time, stirring in between until melted. In a zip bag, melt the chocolate chips. Cut a very small piece of one corner for piping. Holding the stem, dip each strawberry into the white chocolate, leaving just a little bit of the red showing. Place on parchment and add the candy eyes while still wet. Continue until all are done. Once the white is set, draw oval mouths on each using the melted chocolate. Refrigerate until serving.


 

Step-by-step tutorial:


Gather your ingredients. You will need a pound of strawberries, a bag of either white candy melts (found at Michaels) or white chocolate chips, candy eyes (also found at Michaels or online at Amazon), and chocolate chips.


In a liquid measuring cup, melt the white candy melts until smooth.


Be sure your strawberries are very dry, then holding by the stem, dip each one into the white chocolate until it almost reaches the stem, leaving some red showing.


Place the strawberries on parchment paper and add the candy eyes before the white sets. I even like them just like this. They make me laugh. And that drip at the bottom is perfect to look like ghosts!


To do mouths, melt the chocolate chips in a zip bag, then cut a small corner of the bag for piping.


Pipe on oval mouths so they look like they are screaming or scared.


The easiest thing ever! Kids love to help, and will definitely get into eating them!


They are really fun to have at a Halloween dinner or party. Super easy to grab and eat.


Keep them refrigerated until serving, then put them out and watch them quickly disappear, just like real ghosts!
