Football Strawberries – DIY



  • 1-½ cup Dark Chocolate Chips or melting chocolate (also candy melts works…but not quite as tasty.)
  • 12 whole Large Fresh Strawberries, With Stems, Washed And Dried
  • ¼ cups White Chocolate Chips


I have dipped many foods in chocolate and am not the greatest at explaining things that seem easy to me…SOOO I  found the most thorough explanation {here} so if you’ve never dipped fruit in chocolate, go there!!

(Directions from

You will also need:
2 microwave safe coffee mugs
1 piping bag
#2 tip
Parchment paper

In a microwave safe coffee mug add the dark chocolate chips. I’ve found this to be the best vessel for strawberry dipping. If the bowl you use is too wide then the melted chocolate is too shallow and it’s hard to get the strawberries dipped.

Microwave the chocolate on high for 30 seconds. Stir and repeat heating for additional 30 second increments until chocolate is melted. Don’t over heat or your chocolate will seize and there is really no coming back from that.

Grab the strawberry by the leaves.

Dip strawberry into the chocolate and swirl it around carefully until it’s fully coated.

Hold the berry above the coffee mug for a few seconds to allow the excess chocolate to drip off.

Place the strawberry on a sheet of parchment paper to dry. Then push it forward slightly to avoid a pool of dried chocolate forming in the front of your berry. Repeat with the rest of the strawberries. Allow them to dry for about 15 minutes.

In a separate coffee mug (or really, any microwave safe bowl will work for this one), add the white chocolate. Microwave on high for 20 seconds and stir, and repeat for additional 20 second increments until melted. You have to be even more careful with white chocolate—it tends to seize quicker. If it does seize, you can try and add a few drops of canola oil, but you might just need to toss it out and start over.

Pour the melted white chocolate into your piping bag*. Pipe on a stripe across the top and one at the bottom of your strawberries. Then pipe a line down the middle of the berry. Then pipe 5 or 6 lines across the middle line. (See photo).

*Tips for piping:
-Let the white chocolate cool a bit, but not harden, before piping. If it’s too hot, it’ll be really runny.
-When piping the lines, double back a bit to avoid the “strings” of white chocolate from dripping down the sides.

Tips for serving:
-Serve chilled
-Don’t make these more that 24 hours in advance—strawberries tend to shrink a bit as they age.

    I tried making the football strawberries and followed your instructions –I used Nestle Dark Chocolate chips. I would get to the 4th strawberry when my chocolate began to harden! I went through a lot of chocolate chips and found this very frustrating. Any suggestions on what I must be doing wrong? At this point, I would never try making these again.

    Also I’ve seen an edible marker in stores that can be used for the laces. I would guess that is MUCH EASIER to use than white chocolate. It almost looks like what was used in the photo posted on your site.ReplyCancel
