Spooky and sweet! These Strawberry ghosts are a fun alternative to traditional chocolate. Get the mini monsters involved by decorating the strawberries with dark choc-chips!
Line a baking tray with baking 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 stirring 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 6.5mm of red showing below leaves. Gently shake off excess chocolate. Place berry on the prepared baking sheet to set. Repeat with remaining berries.
Once chocolate is set pipe a small amount of black icing to the back of dark choc chip eyes and attach to berries. Finally, use icing to add a smile, a spooky mouth, fangs, or other fun ideas you have.
