Chocolate Covered Football Strawberries


Every year around football season I see people make these strawberries. They are super easy, yet, if you don’t have a steady hand and/or the write piping materials your footballs will be a tad messy. I had never made them before, but had always wanted to. I used a cream cheese frosting to pipe on the lines, and that’s why they turned into a hot mess. I would highly recommend using a white chocolate that will harden up. In any event… the “footballs” were delicious!

Prep: 10 minutes
Serves: 12

Ingredients: 

  • 1 cup chocolate discs for melting
  • 12 large strawberries
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate discs for piping laces

Directions: 

1. Rinse your strawberries very well, and pat dry with a paper towel. 

2. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate discs in 30 second increments, until melted. Stir in between each 30 second heating. Once the chocolate is melted, carefully dip each strawberry in the chocolate, covering the entire strawberry minus the green stem. Place the chocolate covered strawberry on parchment paper and let dry. 
3. Once the strawberries are dried, melt a 1/4 cup of white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl, then place in a zip lock baggy. Cut off the tip of the baggy and pipe “laces” onto each strawberry. Refrigerate until ready to serve!
