I first saw baseball strawberries on Shari’s Berries and have since seen several different versions of them. I thought it was finally time to make them now that my toddler loves playing baseball and singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame!” Needless to say they were a hit with my family. They are easy to make and perfect for parties and baseball game treats. Your kids will have fun decorating them, too!
- 12 Strawberries
- 1 bag Wilton’s white candy melts
- 1 bag Wilton’s red candy melts
- Rinse the strawberries and let them dry completely.
- Melt the white candy melts in a shallow bowl.
- Working with one strawberry at a time, hold the green stem of the berry and gently swirl the berry in the melted white chocolate.
- Spoon melted chocolate over the top if need be so that the strawberry is completely covered in white.
- Let the excess chocolate drip off of the strawberry tip.
- Place the covered strawberries on waxed paper to dry.
- Melt the red candy melts in a bowl.
- Spoon the melted red chocolate into a Ziploc bag or a frosting piping bag.
- Snip off one of the Ziploc bag corners or use a very small piping tip with the frosting bags.
- Make the red stitching marks on the strawberry baseballs, working quickly so that the red chocolate doesn’t harden in the bag.
- Let the chocolate on the strawberries harden.
- Serve the strawberries immediately or store them in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
