Super Bowl Strawberries

Serves about 12

  • 12 fresh strawberries
  • 1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • White cookie icing gel
  • Parchment paper


  1. Heat chocolate chips and butter in a shallow bowl in the microwave until melted, about two minutes. Be sure to stir the mixture at the one minute mark, to ensure the chocolate doesn't overheat. Remove.
  2. Grab each strawberry by the leaves and dip into the melted chocolate, holding it over the mug to drip off any excess. Place on a piece of parchment paper. Repeat until all strawberries have been covered. Let stand until chocolate hardens, about 20 minutes.
  3. Grab your white icing gel and draw on lines to create a football. Chill for at least an hour so that chocolates harden. Best serve chilled.
