Super Bowl Strawberries

Less than a week until the Superbowl..Go Giants!!!!!!!

Here is a fun dessert to make for a Super Bowl party . My only suggestion is to make sure to use good quality white chocolate. I unfortunately only has poor quality white chocolate on hand and it made it very hard for me to pipe on the football design. Next time, I will be sure to have better quality white chocolate, it will be make it A LOT easier!

Super Bowl Strawberries
Makes 15-20 strawberries

1 pound strawberries-rinsed and dried
12 oz good quality semi-sweet chocolate (I like to use Ghiradelli)
6 oz good quality white chocolate

1. Melt semi-sweet chocolate chips in a double boiler. You can also melt the chocolate in a microwave for 1 minutes, stir, then continue to cook in 30 second increments until melted and smooth. Do not over heat or the chocolate with seize up.

2. Dip each strawberry into chocolate and place to wax paper.

3. Using the same melting technique, melt the white chocolate until smooth,. Using a piping bag, or plastic zip-lock bag (cut the a small piece of the corner to create a piping bag) pipe on football design. Refrigerate until ready to serve,

  1. I made these yesterday for last night! A tasty hit. I will say that I found white chocolate in general to be tricky. Even when it was the good kind! Bottom line, great idea, tasty... Big hit!
