Ingredients

  • 30

    fresh strawberries

  • 8

    ounces white baking chocolate, chopped

  • 1

    teaspoon shortening

  • 1/8

    teaspoon almond extract

  • 1/4

    cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

•Wash strawberries and gently pat with paper towels until completely dry. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt white chocolate and shortening at 50% power; stir until smooth. Stir in extract. • Dip each strawberry in chocolate mixture; place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet, allowing excess chocolate to form the ghosts’tails. Immediately press chocolate chips into coating for eyes. Freeze for 5 minutes. • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt remaining chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Dip a toothpick into melted chocolate and draw a mouth on each face. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
