Over thanksgiving, I made some super cute Turkey Cake Pops and with the leftover chocolate melts – I made some chocolate covered strawberries.  They are super quick and easy to make so when I saw some adorable Football Berries on Pinterest, I immediately knew what I wanted to make for Laura’s Superbowl Party this year.

These require little or no skill to make and here is how to do it:

Superbowl Strawberries

Ingredients/Supplies

OR

  • 16 ounces milk chocolate chips + 2 tablespoons shortening or vegetable oil
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries with leaves
  • White icing (I recommend using Royal Icing to get cleanest design)
  • No 1 piping tip + pastry bag OR a plain old plastic baggie
  • Toothpicks
  • Wax Paper
  • Styrofoam

Directions

  1. Insert toothpicks into the tops of the strawberries.
  2. I have a Wilton Chocolate Pro Electric Melting Pot that makes melting chocolate and candy for cake pops a breeze. You certainly don’t *NEED* it though – you can use a double boiler or even any plastic bowl + microwave.
  3. I also prefer to use Chocolate Fondue Melting Wafers, Milk or Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate – but it is kind of pricey.  You can also use plain milk chocolate chips!  Melt the chocolate + shortening, stirring often until smooth. (I recommend adding vegetable oil or shortening a little at a time, as needed to get the right consistency).
  4. Once you have the consistency you want, grab the strawberries by the toothpick and dip into the chocolate mixture.
  5. You can then place them on wax paper to cool or if you don’t want the “puddle” you can turn the strawberries upside down and insert the toothpick into a piece of styrofoam.
  6. Wait til cool/hardened.
  7. To decorate, fill pastry bag with white frosting and use #1 tip to draw laces.  I highly recommend using ROYAL ICING for this otherwise the laces will drip and sag :(  If you don’t have any cake decorating tools, you can simply spoon some frosting into a plain plastic baggie and snip one corner!
