Superbowl

It’s Super Bowl time again! Last year I gave you a bunch of amazing ideas that you can find HERE but here are a couple of new ideas for your Super Bowl party this weekend!

Ingredients and Needs:

  • 1-½ cup Dark or Milk Chocolate Chips or melting chocolate (you can get them at arts and crafts stores but they aren’t as yummy)
  • 12 whole Large Fresh Strawberries, With Stems, Washed And Dried
  • ¼ cups White Chocolate Chips or melting chocolate
  • 2 microwave safe coffee mugs
  • 1 piping bag
  • #2 tip
  • Parchment paper

Prep: 

  • In a microwave safe coffee mug add the dark chocolate chips. It is a good size cup to dip the strawberries in because it is nice and deep and the chocolate will stay warm.
  • 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 or your chocolate will go bad.
  • 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 microwave safe container add the white chocolate. Microwave on high for 20 seconds and stir, and repeat for additional 20 second increments until melted (this should take less time because you will be using less chocolate). You have to be even more careful with white chocolate—it tends to seize quicker and you’ll need to start again.
  • 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 above).

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.

This idea comes from HGTV If you are able to find a white bucket and some black paint (or paint a bucket white then add the black stripes this should be an easy craft for you I know I’ve been able to find some little silver ones at the Dollar Tree so that might be a good place to stop! After painting the bucket and letting it dry you can add the penalty flags sign with just a little tape.  HGTV has the template for the sign for you to download and print HERE.

Super Bowl Brownie Bites:

If you’re already making the chocolate covered strawberries this should be easy!  You can either make your own brownie bites if you have the molding for it.  But if you don’t you can just buy them at the store.  Once you have your brownies use your white chocolate from your strawberries to make your brownie bites.  Please refer to the piping tips from the strawberries for how to make the bites.  Or alternatively if you’d rather use frosting you can either have your frosting in a piping bag or you can buy your ready cans that come with tips from the grocery store and use that to pipe frosting onto your brownie bites.

Happy Super Bowl Sunday Everyone!
