Spooky Halloween Strawberries

Halloween is today, but it's not too late to make these simple, last-minute spooky strawberry treats!
They come together in no time flat, and it's a great way to work in some healthy fruit alongside all the candy.

Here in California, it is supposed to rain (pour, actually) tonight! Yippee!  Wouldn't you know it, the day we are finally getting some much needed rain, it is predicted to start at about the same time the trick-or-treaters will heading out. In this drought-ridden area, rain trumps candy:)

Driscoll's contacted me to make some ghosts with their strawberries.  The best part about these spooky treats?  They're delicious! Did I mention how easy they are?

Spooky Strawberries 
White candy melts or white chocolate
Mini chocolate chips, or black royal icing or candy eyes
Decorations (optional)
Wash strawberries and dry completely.
Melt candy
Hold each strawberry by the leaves and dip into the chocolate, to cover.
Set on wax paper and add chocolate chips or candy eyes.
Let dry (it only takes about 10-15 minutes).
Once dry, add the black royal icing for the ghosts and use more melted candy to drizzle all over the surface of the mummy.
Add toothpick decorations.

Happy Halloween!
