Put a terrifying twist on a sweet treat with these spellbinding Halloween Chocolate-Covered Strawberries…the perfect “Boo-Berries” for your party.

INGREDIENTS

12 oz HERSHEY’S Premier White Creme Chips

12 oz HERSHEY’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

16 strawberries

Sprinkles in Halloween colors

 

DIRECTIONS

1.Line a sheet pan or tray with wax paper.

2.Rinse strawberries and pat dry.

3.Place white creme chips in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) for 90 seconds, then stir. Continue heating for 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each interval, until chips are melted and smooth when stirred. Scoop approximately 1/3 cup of the melted creme into a piping bag or zip-top bag and set aside for later.

4.Hold a strawberry by its stem and dip it into the melted creme. Turn and swirl the berry until evenly coated. Gently shake to remove excess creme. Place the berry on the prepared sheet pan lined with wax paper. Repeat with additional strawberries.

5.Repeat steps 3 and 4 with the semi-sweet chocolate chips.

6.Chill dipped berries in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.

7.Reheat the chocolate in the piping bags as needed, using 15-second intervals at 50% power and kneading the bags with your fingers.

8.Decorate the berries.

 

VARIATIONS

Pipe a simple circle of white creme onto the berry, then use a toothpick to gently pull the bottom of the circle down into a ghost tail shape. Use chocolate to add eyes and a mouth.

WHITE CHOCOLATE BERRIES

Pipe dark chocolate eyes and a mouth onto the berry.

SPRINKLES (optional)

Wet the flat top end of a toothpick and use it to pick up a single nonpareil. Place the sprinkle onto a berry and (very gently) press it into the chocolate. Repeat with additional sprinkles.
