Ghost face strawberries

Another project that kids can make!

What you need: Make 20 little ghosts :-)
8 oz/1 cup white chocolate chips
Black icing gel, for the eyes
18-20 strawberries with stems

Wash, drain and dry the strawberries just before dipping. Set aside. Add the chocolate chips in a glass bowl. Place it in the microwave and cook for 60 to 90 seconds, opening the door every 20 seconds and stirring well, so the heat is distributed evenly.

You may also but it on on a double boiler. The bowl of chocolate chips dipping a few inches over a low simmering water bath. Stir constantly and gently, until melted.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Hold each strawberry by the stem and dip it into the melted chocolate swirling it around and lifting it, allowing excess to drop off. Place it on

the parchment sheet. Repeat for the rest of the strawberries.

Set the strawberries aside until the chocolate sets, about 30 minutes. Add two spooky little eyes with black icing gel. You may also to choose to prop them on lollipop sticks like little ghost pops.
