White Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry Ghosts

My wife started to pull out the Halloween decorations this weekend, which started me thinking. Why not do something fun and easy for Mitt Café? After we tossed a couple of ideas around (some of which would take way to long to complete), we agreed on white chocolate-dipped strawberry ghosts. They are fun and festive. You just dip some strawberries in white chocolate and then dab on some dark chocolate for eyes and a mouth. Something I learned today was not to use ordinary white chocolate… it was much harder than I thought. We tried the microwave trick first, but that did not work. Next we tried using two pots to steam warm the chocolate. But after an hour, it still did not cooperate. It just stayed cranky and lumpy and would not smooth out. So we went back to the drawing board…the store…and picked up some Candy Melts. MUCH easier! Soon we were back in business. Melt, dip, and create. Just what I thought it would be: easy, fun and tasty!

Ingredients

 

1-2 bags of white Candy Melts

1 small container fresh strawberries

Black cookie decoration gel

Wax paper

 

 

 
 
 
 
Preparation

 

Cut the bottom of the strawberries so that they will stand sturdy.

Dip the strawberries in the melted chocolate and place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet to let the candy harden.

Then use the decoration gel to draw eyes and a mouth on each strawberry.
Be creative.
Enjoy!
