Be sure to make the spooky ghost strawberries no more than a day ahead of time. Strawberries do not stay fresh for a long time after being purchased and washed.
Spooky Ghost Strawberries
- 1 pound of strawberries
- 8 oz baking chocolate
- Candy eyes
- Wash and dry the strawberries with a paper towel. It is important to remove as much moisture from the exterior as possible to prevent the chocolate from clumping.
- Allow to continue to dry for an hour or so to make sure they are completely dry.
- Lay out parchment or wax paper for the berries to rest on after being dipped.
- Melt the white chocolate for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between until you can stir it smooth.
- Dip the berries into the melted white chocolate and set them on the parchment paper to set.
- Stick the eyes on the berries while they are still wet.
- Set in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or longer until ready to eat.
- Store leftovers in the fridge.
