This idea just popped into my head – I love when that happens, because sometimes I ’m creatively challenged. This would be a perfect Halloween dessert to take to school for the kiddos. Only, I would probably use a pretzel stick as a skewer in that case (see below!).
See, just as cute – and the pretzel probably won’t be used as a pretend weapon (mom’s out there – you know what I’m talking about!). Let’s get started!
This is as close to a “tutorial” as I’ll probably ever get. Time is never on my side!
1. Bake (or buy) brownie bites, and let them cool. Wash strawberries, cut off tops, and pat dry. Set aside. Microwave 1 bag of white chocolate chips (I used Nestle) in a microwave-safe bowl for 1 minute. Take out and stir until the chocolate chips are completely melted.
2. Top the cooled brownie bite with some melted white chocolate chips and spread around (this is to create a barrier between the strawberry and the brownie).
3. Top with a strawberry and a skewer (if you prefer this look). Otherwise, just top with the strawberry and then spoon melted chocolate on top of it using a circular motion. Then place a skewer, or pretzel rod, through the top and refrigerate until set – about 5 minutes.
4. Decorate the “ghost” face with food writing marker. Tada! Serve the same day you make them – if possible.
*One final note, my daughter informed me that the chocolate was sticking to the wrapper. So for those of you serving these straight out of the refrigerator, try not to get the chocolate on the wrapper!
