These strawberries are so easy to make, and they should be fairly affordable as they will be coming into season right around Halloween time, so this shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg to make.  All you need is the following:

INGREDIENTS

White chocolate – either a block of chocolate or white chocolate melts are fine

Strawberries

Small milk choc chips for eyes and mouth

STEPS

  1. Melt white chocolate in microwave in 20 second intervals until it is all melted and in a smooth consistency.
  2. Dip strawberries into melted white chocolate making sure they are nearly completely covered and pop on a baking mat to start cooling
  3. Before the chocolate sets, pop on the small milk chocolate chips in the position of eyes and a mouth

INGREDIENTS

Sizzlers

Long bread rolls

Tomato sauce 

STEPS

  1. Cut strategic lines into sizzlers prior to cooking to look like fingers – remember to slice into the top a little to make it look like a finger nail
  2. Cook sizzlers as per instructions
  3. Pop into bread rolls and add tomato sauce to the end of the sizzler that doesn’t have the finger nail cut out of it – strategically smear a bit more tomato sauce around for added effect!
