I saw this idea on Pinterest. I think it was actually a picture from a company that sells these on their website. I thought why buy them when I could just make them! These were a lot of fun to make. I used chocolate almond bark to dip the strawberries and some white candy melts for the stripes. The stripes were the most challenging part of this.
I found it is easiest to make the stripes with these squeeze bottles. You melt the candy melts right in the bottle. I found the bottles at Hobby Lobby, but I am sure they sell something similar at Michaels and Walmart.
The strawberry footballs were a huge hit at our tailgating party. Everyone loved them! They tasted great and made a fantastic presentation!
Chocolate Covered Football Strawberries
- chocolate almond bark or brown candy melts
- white candy melts
- mini squeeze bottles
Wash and dry strawberries. The strawberries must be completely dry or the candy melts will seize.
Melt chocolate almond bark according to package directions. Dip strawberries into chocolate coating and place on wax paper to dry.
Once the chocolate has dried, melt white candy melts in squeeze bottle according to directions. Carefully squeeze stripes on to strawberries. Allow to dry.
