Strawberry Footballs

In honor of the upcoming superbowl, which, unfortunately doesn't include 'my' Cowboys, BUT does include my haunting grounds....and in honor of the strawberries that will be going bad in a few days if I don't do something with them....I put these little guys together.  I actually saw this idea on Etsy.  they sold all kinds of sports strawberries, and I thought it was a cute idea.  These would be really cute on a little astro turf, or green serving dish.  I only plated them long enough to take a picture, and then I did what I do best....eat them. 
I just used 'normal' chocolate chips, melted them down 30 seconds at time, stirring in between (it took about 80 seconds), dipped, and once it they dried on wax paper, I piped on my laces using icing, but white chocolate would work too.  This could be neater, but that's what the actual superbowl is for, right? Room to improve.

Thanks for sharing this! What a cute idea! My husband is a true blue, die-hard Cowboys fan and then by default football in general. We eat. sleep. breathe. football in my family from August until February! These will come in handy! I will definitely be following! Us Cowboys fans have to stick together after the season we had!
