Gearing up for the big game? How about a sweet treat?
Chocolate-covered strawberries decorated to look like footballs are fun and delicious! They're simple to make, too!
Wash the strawberries and make sure they are dry.
Next, melt the chocolate candy coating in a double boiler or the microwave. Stir the chocolate about every 30 seconds until completely melted.
Holding the strawberry by the stem, dip them in the melted chocolate candy melts. Make sure they are almost entirely covered. Let any extra chocolate drip off and then set the berry on a baking sheet covered in wax paper.
Continue to coat all the berries in chocolate and then refrigerate them until the chocolate has hardened, about 10 minutes.
While the strawberries are hardening up, you can melt the white candy melts, stirring it at regular intervals if it is in the microwave. When completely melted, pour it into a plastic sandwich bag or a squeeze bottle.
To transform your chocolate covered strawberry into a football, make one line down the middle with the white melted candy and then draw on the laces across the main line. Keep strawberries in the refrigerator and they are best if eaten the same day they are made.
Touchdown! Enjoy your strawberries -- and your game!
