Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pumpkins {contributor Lise}

Hello again! Lise here from Mom Loves Baking. It’s getting close to Fall and I just couldn’t wait to do something pumpkin related. Our family has a Halloween party every year and I usually start planning in September. Here’s a treat that’s cute, festive and a little more on the healthy side. Chocolate covered strawberry “pumpkins”. The kids will love them!

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pumpkins, super fun and easy Halloween treat!

Aren’t they adorable? And they’re so easy to make. Just 3 ingredients! Strawberries, orange candy melts and semisweet chocolate chips. You could also use white candy melts and make ghost faces with the semisweet chocolate. I made ghost strawberries at our Halloween party last year and they were a hit.

Start with strawberries that have been rinsed and dried. Then you melt the candy melts in the microwave for a minute or so. I used Wilton brand which you can find in most craft stores or anywhere that carries cake decorating supplies. Stir the heated candy melts until smooth then dip your strawberries. The leaves of the strawberries make a perfect handle to hold the berry while dipping it. Be careful not to tear the leaves.

Let them set on a parchment lined cookie sheet. You can refrigerate for about 20 minutes for quicker setting time. Meanwhile, place your semisweet chocolate chips in a disposable plastic pastry bag. Heat in microwave for 1 minute. Massage bag to melt, then cut a tiny corner off tip of pastry bag.

Take the “pumpkins” out of the refrigerator and decorate. You can make pumpkin faces or stripes. Work quickly as the chocolate cools off and is harder to work with. You can stick the pastry bag back in the microwave to heat a little longer if needed. Once they are decorated, then you can stick them back in the refrigerator until they are set. These fun treats are best when eaten in the first couple of days.
