How To Decorate Chocolate Covered Strawberries for Halloween

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Rinse and dry your strawberries and place on the baking sheet.

You’ll need 3 small microwave-safe bowls, one bowl per candy color. Follow the instructions on the packages to melt the candy melts. 

DO NOT overheat your chocolate! It will seize and be ruined. 

Pro Tip: adding a small amount of coconut oil or vegetable oil to the candy melts will help thin out thick chocolate.  Stir the chocolate making sure no lumps remain.

For the Mummy Berries:  

Once you’ve melted the white chocolate, carefully dip the strawberries. Place the coated berries on the lined baking sheet until the chocolate hardens. 

Pour the remaining white chocolate into the piping or Ziploc bags and cut a small hole on the end. If you are using a Ziploc bag you will be cutting one of the corners.

Gently squeeze the bag in a zig-zag pattern to make the mummy strips across the berries. 

Prepare another bag with melted black candy melts, and pipe the eyes on. 

Before serving or storing, allow the chocolate to set up by leaving it on the baking sheet. 

For the Spider Berries:

Dip the remaining strawberries in the melted neon green chocolate, letting them rest for a few minutes on the baking sheet.

Using the black candy melts, pipe a triangle on the strawberry then make vertical lines inside of the triangle. Finish it with horizontal lines – the idea is to create a web appearance. 

Pipe some spiders if you’d like, then letting the berries harden on the baking sheet.

How Long Do Chocolate Covered Strawberries Last?

Like fresh berries, these have a short shelf life. Chocolate coated berries will last for 1-2 days before getting too soft.

Can I Freeze Chocolate Covered Strawberries?

The short answer is no. The strawberries will release their juices as they thaw making them an inedible mess.

Tips for Storing 

  • Store uncovered in the fridge. A single layer is best but you can place a piece of parchment paper in between if you need to do a double layer.
  • These can be made a day in advance to cut down on the stress of preparing for a Halloween party.
