Happy Sunday! Hope everyone had a good weekend. Halloween is just around the corner, and I don’t know about you, but it’s one of my favorite holidays. If you are looking for Halloween themed recipe ideas, these Chocolate Covered Strawberry Ghosts are very cute and simple to do. I got the idea from a recipe I found on Taste of Home. To cut the prep time I used a ready-made white chocolate dipping cup and a cake gel tube to decorate. I will say that I didn’t realize the cake gel would not completely harden, so you have to be careful during prep.
Wishing you all a safe holiday. Let me know if you try this recipe out. 😊
15 Large Strawberries (Medium Package)
1 Cup Baker’s Dipping, Premium White Chocolate (7 oz)
1 Wilton Gel Tube, Black (0.75 oz)
Prep the strawberries. Wash and pat completely dry. You want to remove as much moisture on the exterior as possible, as moisture will change the consistency of the melting chocolate when you are in the dipping process.
Prepare the dipping chocolate. Microwave the chocolate as per instructions.
Dip the strawberries in chocolate. I found the best way to do this was to hold the strawberries by the head and spoon the chocolate onto the strawberry to avoid adding excess moisture to the chocolate. You must work quickly during this step as the chocolate in the cup hardens fast.
Place on a non-stick plate. I found that by linning my plate with wax paper, the strawberries were easier to remove from the plate.
Refrigerate. Freeze for about 5 minutes to make the decorating step easier.
Decorate! Place the strawberries on your serving plate and decorate.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
