How perfect are these chocolate covered strawberries for the Super Bowl?!?!?!  I found these and just had to share!!!!!

I am choosing to use dark chocolate for mine, as it is the healthier option!! Also, I will use white chocolate to decorate the laces.


  • 1 pound box of fresh strawberries with leaves
  • 16 ounces of dark chocolate chips
  • 4 ounces white chocolate chips
  • 2.5 tablespoons shortening


  1. In a double boiler, melt the dark chocolate and 2 tbs. shortening, stirring occasionally until smooth.
  2. Holding them by the toothpicks, dip the strawberries into the chocolate mixture.
  3. Insert toothpicks into the tops of the strawberries.
  4. Turn the strawberries upside down and insert the toothpick into styrofoam for the chocolate to cool.
  5. In a separate batch, combine the white chocolate and the 0.5 tbs. shortening.
  6. Place in a piping bag or small plastic bag and cut a tiny hole at the end. Use to make the laces on the football!
  7. Place on a serving tray and wait for your guests to be shocked!!!
