Short And Sweet. Baseball Strawberries.

Baseball Strawberries.

Aren’t these Baseball Strawberries adorable? They are really easy, too.

The recipe I followed (link below) called for red candy melts. I tried using a candy dye to tint white candy melts red. Well, that only resulted in pink chocolate.

I was in a rush since it was an insanely over-scheduled day (per usual) and I had to bring the strawberries to my son’s baseball game and had only a few minutes to finish decorating. I pulled out my box of trusty candy writers only to discover that the one color of the 12 that I had used up was red.

So, in a pinch I used a toothpick to paint on stitching lines using the candy melt dye. Still looked cute, but the dye did not dry, so go with the candy writer to prevent little baseball boys with red stained lips.

Ingredients:

12 strawberries
12 ounces White Candy Melts
Red Candy Writer

Directions:

1. Melt the white candy melts in a shallow bowl. (I use this nifty candy melter.)

2. Working with one strawberry at a time, hold the green stem of the berry and gently swirl the berry in the melted white chocolate. Let the excess chocolate drip off of the strawberry tip.

3. Place the covered strawberries on waxed paper to dry.

4. Prepare the Candy Writer for use following instructions.

5. Make the red stitching marks on the strawberry baseballs.

6. Serve the strawberries immediately or store them in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
