Strawberry Ghosts

  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Cook Time: 0 minutes
  • Serves: 20
  • 1 Package (16 ounces) Driscoll's Strawberries
  • 10 Ounces white chocolate chips
  • Candy eyes
  • Fine-tipped black icing tube
  • Broom fibers or wheat bundles from a craft store
  • Black twine
  • Decorative twigs from a craft store
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Rinse the strawberries and dry them well with a soft cloth or paper towel.
  • Melt chocolate by placing in a double boiler over simmering water. Be careful to keep water from getting into the pan or chocolate may seize. Alternatively, place chocolate in a glass bowl and microwave for 20 seconds and stir with a fork. Repeat microwaving and stiring until chocolate is not-quite melted. Shorten microwave time to 5 seconds and stir. Repeat if necessary until completely melted.
  • Hold berries by stem or leaves and dip into melted chocolate. Swirl until coated. Leave about ¼ inch of red showing below leaves. Gently shake off excess chocolate. Place berry on prepared baking sheet to set. Repeat with remaining berries.
  • Meanwhile, create decorative broomsticks by cutting twigs into 2 ½ inch lengths and fibers into 3 inch lengths. Gather broom fibers into a small, rough bundle. Loop twine around the bundle, but keep it loose. Slip twig into center of bundle. Adjust the twig and fibers to look like a brookstick. Tighten twine and tie a small knot.
  • Once chocolate is set, press broomstick handles down into strawberries through top center of leaves. Pipe a small amount of frosting to the back of candy eyes and attach to berries. Finally, use frosting to add a smile, a spooky mouth, fangs, or other fun ideas you have.
