I was sent a gift card and free product coupons for this review but all opinions are my own.
I absolutely love crafts that involve my kids, and that are delicious and have teaching moments and these White Chocolate Strawberry Ghosts with the help of Driscolls berries and Micheals had all of that!
Halloween is coming up and why not make your celebration extra fun with these super cute white chocolate covered strawberries. These are so easy to make and a great alternative to traditional candy for your Halloween celebration.
Here is the cast of characters you will need. I also made some white chocolate covered “bones” to go along with the Driscoll’s strawberries.
Oreo’s for the “dirt”
Driscoll’s Strawberries. I should shave bought more packages because my kids tried to eat them all!
Almond bark for the white “chocolate”. I think this melts easier than traditional chocolate.
Marshmallows…the small ones.
Candy eyes and black icing that you can pipe.
1.First you have to eat some strawberries…it’s a requirement!
2. Melt the almond bark for 1 minute. Stir, then melt in 15 second intervals until melted then get to dipping those strawberries!
3. Then set them on a cookie sheet with wax paper to dry. Once they are dried, you can decorate their faces. I made myself then let the kids make some for just them. I knew they wouldn’t look perfect but I wanted them to be hands on in this. I even let them decorate their own where my son put 10 eyes on 1 strawberry and it couldn’t have looked any cuter!
For the white chocolate “bones”, here is how you make them:
1. Get your pretzel sticks and marshmallows.
2. Attach a marshmallow to each end of the pretzels.
3. Dip in melted chocolate and remove with a fork and let dry on a wax paper.
And last but not least, finish off this craft is to grind up oreo cookies. You can probably buy just the cookies already ground up but my kids loved separating the cookies from the creme then putting them in the food processor. Once it looks like dirt, put it on a plate and put your strawberries and “bones” in the “graveyard”. So fun!
This is a such a fun thing to make with the kids or whip up for your upcoming fall parties! Just make sure to grab a few extra boxes of strawberries in case your kids love them as much as mine do and eat them up before you can decorate them!
