I love chocolate covered strawberries! Eating them makes me feel pampered… or somehow like it is a special occasion. Plus, they are the quickest dessert, and they are always a hit. Whenever I make them, people get excited. And I’m talking big people, little people, and somewhere-in-between people . Everyone. So I thought why not for Halloween? And I’m glad I did. These ghost and mummy strawberries turned out darling! I used an edible ink pen (I bought mine on Amazon- I included the link for you below, but I’ve seen them in the cake decorating section of Walmart, too.) for the ghost faces and the mummy eyes. But you could also use mini chocolate chips for the eyes and melted chocolate for the mouth… though that would be trickier, I’m guessing. I think I’ll stick to the easier edible ink pen. Enjoy and have a Happy Halloween!
Ghost and Mummy Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Wash and allow the strawberries to dry. Set out wax paper or a silpat. Melt the chocolate on 50% power in the microwave for two minutes. Stir until the bowl no longer feels warm. Then microwave for 30 seconds at 50% power, stirring in between, until the chocolate is completely melted. Hold the strawberries by the stem and roll in the chocolate until covered. Then gently place on wax paper. Allow the chocolate to harden, then draw the ghost faces and/or mummy eyes. Now pipe white chocolate onto the mummy strawberries to look like wrappings (I like these bottles better than piping bags). You don’t have to be careful when you pipe the chocolate. I just do a combination of rotating the strawberry and looping the piping hand around the strawberry, and they turn out pretty cute.
